Ronnie Wood's children only agreed to reconcile with their father after their mum JO ordered them to forgive him for his affair.
The Rolling Stones star, 62, walked out on his wife of 23 years in July last year (08) after his romance with Ekaterina Ivanova was revealed.
His kids with Jo - Leah and Tyrone - as well as her son Jamie from a previous relationship refused to speak to Wood following the revelations.
Leah Wood recently let her father back into her life following the birth of her first child, Maggie Dylan, in May (09) - but only out of respect for her mother's wishes.
Jo tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "I said to them: 'Come on, he's your father, you have to make an effort.' He's slowly making friends with the kids again but it's difficult and these things take time. I think maybe he was a bit nervous at first but he shouldn't be. I've forgiven him and I'm not bitter about anything he's done. Life's too short to be like that.
"I would love for Ronnie to be back in our family's life. So yes, I hope he'll be able to come over for Sunday lunch and that we'll all sit down together and talk and laugh and be great friends. I am very open for that."
