72-year old Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and his 29-year old ballerina girlfriend Melanie Hamrick are expecting a child, Jagger’s 8th. Jagger was ‘surprised’ by the news that his girlfriend was pregnant, but very happy.
A source tells The Sun: “This is great news. It will be Mick’s eighth child and nothing fazes him. He’s been incredibly supportive.
“She’s very bright, intelligent, sparky and has her own ideas about how she wants to lead her life. She knows what a great relationship Mick has with all of his children and can’t wait for him to be a dad again.
“They are taking the news in their stride.”
Mick, 72, and Melanie, 29, have been in a relationship since 2014 and have seen each other regularly over the past two years. Despite the pregnancy, Melanie will not live with Mick. She is instead expected to end her career in ballet to move to either Los Angeles or head home to Connecticut to be near her family.
Jagger’s 68-year old Rolling Stones bandmate Ronnie Wood recently welcomed twins.
