You can’t always get what you want – especially if what you want is to sleep through the night and not have to change a nappy.
And Mick Jagger is going to be following his own advice very soon with the announcement that his girlfriend, 29-year-old American ballerina Melanie Hamrick, is pregnant.
Mick, who celebrates his 73rd birthday this month, is about to rock more than just the stage as he prepares for parenthood again. Already dad to seven other children from previous relationships including Karis (with ex Marsha Hunt), Jade (with ex Bianca Jagger), Elizabeth, Georgie, James, Gabriel (with ex Jerry Hall) and Lucas (with ex Luciana Gimenez), Mick is said to be delighted to be a dad again.
The Sun reports the rocker is happy and excited about the pregnancy. He and Melanie (pictured below), who have been together for two years, live in separate countries, but see each other often. Their relationship developed after the tragic death in 2014 of L’Wren Scott, Mick’s partner of 13 years.

Plus, Mick and his bandmate, Ronnie Wood, can have play dates together. Ronnie, 68, and his wife Sally Humphries, 37, welcomed twin girls, Gracie and Alice on 1 June 2016. Maybe Keith will join them too.
If you bring all The Rolling Stones children together, there are 18, ranging from one month to 48 years, between the four of them. Charlie Watts has one, Ronnie Wood has six, Mick has seven and Keith Richards four.
And baby Jagger makes 19!
If that doesn’t give the group satisfaction, then I don’t know what will!
Congrats Mick and Melanie! Now, let’s take bets on baby’s name…
I’m going with Angie. Or Ruby.
