The British legend, Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones, is now the proud father of his eighth child this Thursday.
The seventy-three-year-old celebrity has now fathered child number eight with Melanie Hamrick, a professional ballet dancer from the States.
E! news spoke to Jagger’s rep, who stated, “Melanie Hamrick & Mick Jagger’s son was born today in New York and they are both delighted, Mick 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”.
What’s the name?
Fans patiently await the announcement of the new baby’s name, as it has yet to be revealed to the public.
Mick Jagger and Melanie, age thirty, became a couple back in 2014, keeping it out of the public eye as much as possible until this past July, in which the couple’s pregnancy was announced to fans.
The superstar has had seven children with four previous relationships, all within the ages of eighteen to forty-seven. In addition, he now has five grandchildren to add to his famously large family unit.
Only recently born into this world, Jagger’s new baby boy has already acquired the title great uncle, as Assisi Jackson, Mick’s granddaughter delivered a girl in 2014. Ronnie Wood, a friend and Rolling Stone’s band mate to Jagger also celebrates the arrival of twin daughters at the age of sixty-nine.
The large family trend continues as Ronnie also has four children from past relationships in addition to a whopping six grandchildren.
Fans took to social media to express their happiness for the superstars, and await upcoming news for the legendary band and their new family additions.
