Ronnie Wood, the guitarist of Rolling Stones, became a father at the age of 68 with 38-year-old Sally Wood. The couple had twin daughters whom they named Gracie Jane and Alice Rose.
Wood’s wife, who is a theater producer, gave birth on Monday and shared it on Twitter saying, "Thank you all so much for the love. Can't believe our babies are a day old already. They are wonderful."
Reports reveal that if the babies were not yet delivered later in the week, Sally will be having an induced labor, IOL reported.
