'Eric Clapton Rocks His Baby'

Doting dad ... Clapton
holds baby Julie

ROCK legend Eric Clapton shows he's the daddy of all guitarists - as he carefully carries his baby daughter.

Eric, 57, cradled two-months-old Julie Rose after mum Melia McEnery, 25, lifted her out of a buggy on a lunch trip in Los Angeles.

An onlooker said: "They look like a perfect little family. Eric was holding Julie Rose like a confident father. It's obvious he adores her."

Eric - who has just finished the US leg of his world tour - is expected to wed Melia next month in Antigua.

The birth of Julie has eased Eric's grief after the death of his son Conor, four, in a hotel window fall in 1991.
