Age certainly isn’t getting in the way of Mick Jagger, who has just announced that he and his 29-year-old girlfriend, ballerina Melanie Hamrick, are expecting their 8th child together.
The young dancer, whom Mick has been dating since 2014, is three months pregnant, and she and Mick are said to be overjoyed with the news.
‘This is great news,’ a source told The Sun. ‘It will be Mick’s eighth child and nothing fazes him. He’s been incredibly supportive. ‘She’s very bright, intelligent, sparky and has her own ideas about how she wants to lead her life. She knows what a great relationship Mick has with all of his children and can’t wait for him to be a dad again.
‘They are taking the news in their stride.’
Melanie is said to be giving up her dancing career to concentrate on motherhood and the couple may move across the pond to be closer to her family.
And Mick’s not the only Stone with baby news. Just six weeks ago bandmate Ronnie Wood welcomed twin girls with wife Sally Humphreys.
Congrats guys, just don’t tire yourselves out running around after the little ones!
