The Wild Horses singer and 29-year-old belerina Melanie Hamrick will welcome a child early next year and are delighted with the news.

A spokesperson for the singer confirmed the news to The Sun and a source told the newspaper: “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.”

The source added: “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’s eldest child with 60s singer and model Marsha Hunt Karis is aged 45.

He has two daughters Jade and Elizabeth Jagger with Bianca Jagger, who he was married to from 1971 to 1979 and Georgia May, James, and Gabriel from his long-term partner Jerry Hall.

His youngest child is Lucas Jagger, who was born in 1999 and whose mother is the former Brazilian fashion model Luciana Gimenez.

Sir Mick and Melanie, who hails from Connecticut in the USA, began dating after the suicide of his partner of 13 years L'Wren Scott in 2014.

Sir Mick - who has five grandchildren and recently became a great-grandfather when his granddaughter Assisi, daughter of Jade Jagger, gave birth to a baby girl now aged two - has introduced Melanie to his huge family.

Melanie has reportedly decided not to move to London where Sir Mick lives when the baby is born and instead, she will either relocate to Los Angeles where he spends much of his time or back to Connecticut.

The news comes two months after fellow Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood became a father again aged 68, after his wife Sally Humphreys had twin girls.

And his former partner, 60-year-old Jerry Hall, married 85-year-old media mogul Sir Rupert Murdoch earlier this year.

Congratulations Sir Mick and Melanie!
