Jagger-Hall children have dyslexia

Jerry Hall has revealed that all four of her children with Rolling Stone Mick Jagger suffer from dyslexia.

Jerry Hall has revealed that all four of her children with Rolling Stone Mick Jagger suffer from dyslexia.

The Texan model said model Elizabeth, 23, James 21, Georgia May, 15, and nine-year-old Gabriel all have the condition.

But Hall told Closer magazine that having dyslexia, which causes learning difficulties, was a “gift”.

Her comments come after the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, 47, recently revealed that her daughter, Princess Beatrice, 18, suffers from dyslexia and struggles to read.

Hall, 50, who has herself been diagnosed with dyslexia, said of her own children: “They all take after me.

“Being dyslexic is difficult at the very beginning but as you get older you learn to cope with it and I think it’s great.

“It’s like a gift because it makes you think differently.”

Hall said she spends two hours every day driving her youngest son Gabriel to a school that helps dyslexic children.

She said: “It’s a slog but worth it, and it really helps him when I read to him.

“I love family life and my children are the greatest gift life has given me.”

She added: “Maybe I’m going to be one of those mothers who still has all the children living at home with her in their 30s.

“I’d like it but I think James is planning to move into his own flat pretty soon. Guys need their space. It’s the chick factor.”

Hall, who separated from Jagger in 1999 after Brazilian model Luciana Morad gave birth to the Rolling Stone’s child, also ruled out remarrying, adding: “I’m so busy, I don’t want to get married. I live with my children and I don’t think it would be right.”

She said of her ex, who dates leggy model L’Wren Scott: “We’re fond of each other. I’ve known him for 30 years and we get on well. I don’t know if he will marry again.”
