Baby No 8 is child's play for Mick Jagger
Papa might be a Rolling Stone, writes Sarah Caden, but he could find the night feeds a bit of a stretch
'Nothing fazes him." It's a funny old way to sum up a man's reaction to impending fatherhood. But then, this is a funny old situation. Funny, not in the ha-ha sense. And old, given that the father-to-be in question is Mick Jagger, aged 72.
Last Friday, it was made official that Jagger is to become a father for the eighth time. Next January, American ballerina Melanie Hamrick, who is more than 40 years Jagger's junior, is due to have his child.
A spokesperson for the Rolling Stones singer confirmed the news to an English tabloid last Friday and then a "source" close him added detail. "This is great news," they said. "It will be Mick's eighth child and nothing fazes him. He's been incredibly supportive."
