Mick’s seven other children’s ages range from 16-46, and the rocker also has five grand children. The couple released a statement regarding the news.
“Melanie Hamrick and Mick Jagger’s son was born today in New York and they are both delighted. 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.”– the statement read.Advertisement
The media was making a big deal out of the couple’s age gap. Mick is 73 years old, while Melanie is only 29. The 44 year age gap was widely criticized, and drew even more criticism from the amount of money Mick was planning on giving Melanie and their son. At the end of the day, it shouldn’t really matter, as long as Mick, Melanie and the baby are happy.
We wish nothing but the best for Mick, Melanie and their child! Congratulations!
