Mick Jagger proves there’s no age cap on fatherhood — he’s just become a dad for the eighth time.
The Rolling Stones frontman welcomed a baby boy with his girlfriend, ballerina Melanie Hamrick. “Melanie Hamrick and Mick Jagger’s son was born today [Dec. 8] in New York and they are both delighted,” read a statement from the couple.
No baby name has been revealed yet, but the statement continued, “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.”
This is the first child for 29-year-old Hamrick, but 73-year-old Jagger is already a dad of seven: Georgia, James, Jade, Elizabeth, Lucas, Karis and Gabriel, who range in age from 17 to 45. Jagger also has five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
The new arrival has two ready-made playmates: Jagger’s Rolling Stones bandmate, guitarist Ronnie Wood, welcomed twin girls Gracie Jane and Alice Rose in May with wife Sally.
