Baby joy for Sir Mick Jagger at the age of 73

Rolling Stones frontman, Sir Mick Jagger, has become a father again aged 73, his publicist Bernard Doherty said.

The singer and Melanie Hamrick welcomed a son in New York on December 8.

A statement said: “Melanie Hamrick and 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.”

The new addition is Sir Mick’s eighth child, and his first with ballerina Melanie.

Sir Mick, who is a great-grandfather, has seven children – Karis, Jade, Elizabeth, James, Georgia, Gabriel and Lucas – from previous relationships.

Their ages range from 17 to 46.

Sir Mick and Melanie began dating after the suicide of fashion designer L’Wren Scott in 2014, Sir Mick’s partner of 13 years.
