Mick Jagger becomes a father for the eighth time


It’s the second new arrival in a week for Mick Jagger.

A few days ago, the band released its first new album in 11 years, the blues covers collection, “Blue & Lonesome.”

Jagger is already a dad to a brood ranging from 17 to 45 and in 2014, he became a great-grandfather.

A statement from the singer’s publicist noted that Jagger was at the hospital for the baby’s arrival and that he and Hamrick, a ballerina, were “both delighted” at the birth.

Jagger began dating Hamrick after the 2014 suicide of longtime partner L’Wren Scott. The mothers of his other children are Marsha Hunt, Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall and Luciana Gimenez Morad.
