Sir Mick Jagger is expecting his eighth child at the age of 72, his representatives have confirmed.
A spokesman for The Rolling Stones frontman confirmed the singer’s 29-year-old girlfriend, American ballerina Melanie Hamrick, is pregnant.
Sir Mick, who is a great-grandfather, has seven children whose ages range from 45 to 17.
A source quoted by The Sun said:
“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.”
Sir Mick and Miss Hamrick began dating after the suicide of L’Wren Scott in 2014, Sir Mick’s partner of 13 years.
His latest child will be his eighth with five different women.
Sir Mick has a son, Karis Hunt Jagger, 45, from his relationship with Marsha Hunt and a daughter Jade Jagger, now 44, with his ex-wife Bianca.
The singer had four children with his ex-partner Jerry Hall – Elizabeth, 32, James, 30, Georgia, 24, and 19-year-old Gabriel.
