He's got the lips: mum of Jagger's love child tells of Mick's close ties
Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez has spoken with warmth about the close bond between her son Lucas and his father Mick Jagger.
Lucas Morad Jagger (17) is the result of a brief relationship between Ms Gimenez and The Rolling Stones frontman.
It was a liaison that also ended Jagger's 22-year relationship with Jerry Hall. Ms Hall (59) married media mogul Rupert Murdoch (85) in March.
During an exclusive interview with 'Hello!' magazine, Ms Gimenez said father and son are "close".
"Lucas and Mick are really close and Mick is a wonderful dad," she said from her home in Sâo Paulo.
"I like to raise my child with his dad, with his help and advice. He's a very wise man and he is passionate about his kids."
She added: "He has always been there and that has been a really great experience."
Ms Gimenez (46) said her son has inherited his famous father's looks.
"He's very handsome," she told the magazine.
"He's going to be a heartbreaker. He's got the lips, the wonderful part that has passed on through generations, but I think he looks like me."
Jagger and the Brazilian actress have maintained a good relationship.
She revealed that her husband, Marcelo de Carvalho, once invited the much-admired rock star to stay with them.
"When we had the World Cup in Brazil, my husband, who I love very much and who is a big part of Lucas's life, invited Mick to stay because we're friends and it's possible to be friends with your ex-boyfriend.
"That was such a big thing for Lucas."
On the same theme, Ms Gimenez said her husband supported her stance.
"If you thought that someone was important enough for you to have a relationship and have a child with, then why not have a great relationship?" she asked.
Sports fan Jagger (72) and his son plan to attend next month's European Championships together.
"It's a normal situation. They really get along and they speak on the phone and on Skype," she said.
"They talk almost every day."
