Mick Jagger is set to become a father again for the eighth time at the age of 72!
The Rolling Stones singer is expecting a child with his 29 year old girlfriend, American ballerina Melanie Hamrick. Mick already has seven children from previous relationships, with his eighth one now due in January 2017.
Melanie has been linked to Mick since 2014 where they were first spotted kissing on the balcony of his hotel in Zurich.
A source close to the couple says: ‘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 has four children – Lizzy, 32, James, 30, Georgia May, 24, Gabriel, 18 – with ex partner Jerry Hall, 59, who is now married to media mogul Rupert Murdoch, 85.
With wife-of-eight-years Bianca Jagger, 71, Mick had daughter Jade, 44 and with singer Marsha Hunt, 70, he had daughter Karis, 45. Mick also has 16-year-old Lucas with Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez Mora.
Mick was also with L’Wren Scott for 13 years who was found dead in her Manhattan apartment two years ago from suicide.
The couple may be having a baby together, but Melanie has no plans to move to London to be near him any time soon. Mick will of course continue “to love and support his child.”
Instead Melanie is planning to move to either Los Angeles, where he spends a great deal of time, or to Connecticut to be near her family.
