Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones is about to become a father again after it was confirmed that his girlfriend, ballerina Melanie Hamrick, is pregnant with their first baby. This means that the 72-year-old rocker is about to have his eighth child.
It seems having babies at a late age is becoming common among members of the legendary rock group as two months ago, Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood and his girlfriend Sally Humphreys welcomed their twin daughters just before his 69th birthday, according to Billboard.
With the pregnancy of Hamrick, Jagger is set to become a father of eight. While the baby will be the couple's first, Jagger currently has a total of seven children with five different women. The oldest is Karis from his then-girlfriend Marsha Hunt followed by Jade Sheena Jezebel, Jagger's daughter with his first wife Bianca.
He also has four kids with former model Jerry Hall. Their names are Elizabeth Scarlett, James Leroy Augustin, Georgia May Ayeesha and Gabriel Luke Jagger. The artist also has a son named Lucas with Brazilian model and television personality Luciana Gimenez.
According to The Sun's sources, 29-year-old Hamrick is not intimidated by the idea of joining Jagger's big family. Instead, the insiders noted that she's very supportive of him becoming a father again.
However, it is not yet clear if Hamrick and Jagger, who have been dating since 2014, will live together in London once their baby arrives. Although the sources stated that she might retire from her career as a ballerina after she gives birth, she is expected to relocate to Los Angeles, where Jagger spends most of his time.
As for the rest of the Rolling Stones, the iconic English rock band is set to perform at the Desert Trip Festival in Indio, California in October. The other artists and groups featured in the lineup include Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, Neil Young and The Who.
