His family just keeps growing! Mick Jagger became a dad for the eighth time at age 73 on Thursday, December 8, when his girlfriend, Melanie Hamrick, gave birth to a baby boy.
“Melanie Hamrick and Mick Jagger’s son was born today in New York, and they are both delighted,” his rep told Us Weekly in a statement.
“Mick Jagger was at the hospital for the arrival. Mother and baby are doing well and we request that the media respect their privacy at this time.”
Back in July, the rep confirmed to Us that the couple were expecting their first child together. The Rolling Stones frontman and the ballerina, 30, have been dating for two years.
‘Mick Jagger was at the hospital for the arrival. Mother and baby are doing well and we request that the media respect their privacy at this time.’
Sir Mick Jagger has a daughter, Karis Hunt Jagger, 46, from his relationship with Marsha Hunt and a daughter Jade Jagger, now 45, with his ex-wife Bianca.
He had four children with his ex-partner Jerry Hall – Elizabeth, 32, James, 31, Georgia, 24, and Gabriel, 18.
He also had a son, Lucas, 17, following a brief relationship with Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez.
Their liaison ended Sir Mick Jagger’s 22-year-relationship with Hall, who is now married to media mogul Rupert Murdoch.
Sir Mick Jagger has five grandchildren and became a great-grandfather in May 2014 when Jade’s daughter Assisi gave birth to a baby girl.
The new addition is Sir Mick Jagger’s eighth child, and his first with Ms Hamrick.
Sir Mick Jagger and Ms Hamrick began dating after the suicide of fashion designer L’Wren Scott in 2014, Sir Mick’s partner of 13 years.
The baby news comes six months after his bandmate Ronnie Wood’s wife Sally Humphreys gave birth to twin girls, just two days before Wood turned 69.
In an interview given by Wood a month after the birth of his daughters, Wood revealed that Sir Mick Jagger was one of the first people to meet them.
He told Hello! magazine: ‘Mick Jagger popped in on the third day. He couldn’t wait to see them, I put one in each arm and took a photo.’
This is Hamrick’s first child. Jagger is already the dad of daughter Karis, 46, with ex Marsha Hunt; daughter Jade, 45, with ex-wife Bianca Jagger; daughters Elizabeth, 32, and Georgia May, 24, and sons James, 31, and Gabriel, 18, with ex Jerry Hall; and son Lucas, 17, with ex Luciana Gimenez. He also has three grandchildren and a great-grandson.
Before his romance with the dancer, the rocker was in long-term relationship with fashion designer The Wren Scott from 2001 to 2014.
His eldest son is Karis Hunt Jagger, 46, of his relationship with Marsha Hunt, while he also has his daughter Jade Jagger, now 45, with his ex-wife Bianca.
She died by suicide in March 2014 and would have left all her property of $ 9 million to Jagger.
