A year and a half after becoming a great-grandfather, 73-year-old Mick Jagger is a father again.
Jagger, the 73-year-old frontman of the Rolling Stones, was at a New York hospital Thursday when girlfriend, Melanie Hamrick, gave birth to the couple’s son. According to a statement, both parents are “delighted” and “mother and baby are doing well.”
Jagger already has seven children Georgia, James, Jade, Elizabeth, Lucas, Karis and Gabriel who range in age from their 40s to teenagers. He is also a grandfather of two children. The daughter of Jagger’s daughter Jade gave birth to a girl in 2014, Jagger’s first great-grandchild.
Melanie Hamrick is a ballerina who has performed with the American Ballet Theatre in New York.
In May, fellow Rolling Stone Ron Wood became a father again at 68 after his wife, Sally Humphreys, gave birth to twin girls.
