Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has become a father for the eighth time – at the age of 73.
His ballet dancer girlfriend Melanie Hamrick has given birth to a son in New York.
Jagger already has seven children with previous partners. He also has five grandchildren and became a great-grandfather in 2014.
“Melanie Hamrick & Mick Jagger’s son was born today (Thursday) in New York and they are both delighted,” Fran Curtis, the long-time publicist for the Rolling Stones, said in a statement.
“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.”
