Mick Jagger to be Ronnie Wood’s nanny
The 68-year-old singer will become a father for the fifth time when his wife Sally Humphreys gives birth this summer, and the guitarist has started calling his 72-year-old pal “Nanny Mick” after the veteran rocker’s surprising offer.
He said: “The Rolling Stones are all thrilled. Keith loves kids, so he’s excited, and Mick keeps telling me to give him a year and then he’ll be our nanny.
“So now we’re calling him Nanny Mick.
“Everyone is thrilled for me. The Stones are one big family. It’s all about the kids. In this tour everyone’s been there: [Mick’s children] Jade, Karis, James, Lizzy, Gabriel, Lucas and Georgia May; Patti and Keith’s girls [Theodora and Alexandra] and Charlie’s granddaughter Charlotte.
“My girls will be two more added into the mix. I hope my girls will be coming on tour with me for years to come.”
Ronnie – who has four grown-up children, Jesse, 39, from his first marriage to Krissy Findlay, Leah, 37 and Tyrone, 32, with second wife Jo Wood, and he adopted her son Jamie, 42 – is going to be diving head first into his latest paternal duties when his twins are born.
He added to HELLO! magazine: “I’m very good at it. I’m going to be changing the nappies and all that goes with it. I’m looking forward to all that.
“I’m unbelievably lucky and unbelievably blessed. I love all my kids. I love being a dad and to have this happening is just wonderful. I’m a lucky guy.”
