29 Things Older Than Mick Jagger’s New Baby Mama
There’s quite an age difference between Mick Jagger and the 29-year-old expectant mother of his eighth child. Forty-three years, to be exact. But as the above gallery proves, there are plenty of things that are older than ballerina Melanie Hamrick.
Not included are four of the 72-year-old Rolling Stones singer’s seven children, who are also older than the expecting Hamrick: Karis, 45, whose mother is singer Marsha Hunt; Jade, 44, with ex-wife Bianca Jagger; and Elizabeth, 32, and James, 30, with ex-partner Jerry Hall. Still, as you click through 29 Things Older Than Mick Jagger’s New Baby Mama, you might be surprised to find some everyday items and famous figures who predate Hamrick.
Longtime Rolling Stones fans will also note that many of Jagger’s bandmates take the same age-ain’t-nothing-but-a-number approach to their significant others. Guitarist Ronnie Wood recently became a father again at age 68, after wife Sally Humphreys had twin girls. And former co-founding bassist Bill Wyman memorably married 18-year-old Mandy Smith in 1989 when he was 52, after the couple had been dating since she was 13. (Wyman has had three children with his current wife, the most recent of whom arrived when he was 62.)
This will be the fifth woman to bear a child for Jagger, who is also happens to be a great-grandfather. Jade’s daughter Assisi gave birth to a daughter in May 2014. Jagger, who is reportedly at work on a blues-focused album with the Rolling Stones, turns 73 this month. His youngest child, Lucas, was born in 1999.
