Legendary rocker Mick Jagger (72) and his 27 year old love, Melanie Hamrick, a member of the American Ballet Theatre company, are expecting! By the time the baby arrives, Mick will be 73.

Rock’n’roll’s great, Mick Jagger is best known as the lead singer of Rolling Stones and for such hits as “Get Off My Cloud” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” as well as hit albums “Beggars Banquet” and “Exile On Main Street”.
Mick Jagger is also an accomplished songwriter and solo artist (1985 “She’s The Boss”, 1993 “Wandering Spirit” and 2001 “Goddess In The Doorway”).
He is a sought after music collaborator who has worked with Lenny Kravitz, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Living Colour, Carly Simon, The Who’s Pete Townshend and others. Jagger sung duets with such music icons as David Bowie, The Jacksons, Tina Turner, and Bono.

As much as his artistic achievements are common knowledge, it is much less known that Mick Jaggers’s business acumen helped Rolling Stones achieve large degree of independence from the music industry. The creation of Rolling Stones’ own record label and pioneering arena and stadium concerts greatly contributed to the group’s and Mick’s financial success.

Mick Jagger To Become A Dad Again At 73

Mick Jagger

The Rolling Stone is already a father of seven: Mick Jagger has four daughters and three sons ranging in age from 17 to 45 by several different women. (These are the children we know of, it wouldn’t be shocking if there were other Mick’s kids out there. After all, the famous lover is reported to have been with over 4,000 girls….)

No wedding plans accompanied the recent pregnancy announcement. It isn’t known at this time whether Mick Jagger and Melanie Hamrick plan to raise the baby together. Just as well, Mick isn’t known for being a great long-term mate or spouse but is – by all accounts – a devoted father.
