Rolling Stones frontman and co-founder Mick Jagger is going to be a father again. Jagger, who will turn 73 on July 26, and 29-year-old ballerina Melanie Hamrick, his girlfriend of two years, will welcome their first child together in early 2017. According to The Sun, who broke the news, Hamrick is three months pregnant and excited to become a mother.

While this will be Melanie Hamrick’s first child, it will be Mick Jagger’s 8th. His oldest daughter, Karis Hunt Jagger, was born in 1970 to Marsha Hunt. With his ex-wife Bianca Jagger, he has another daughter, Jade, born in 1971. He has four children with longtime partner, model Jerry Hall: Lizzie (1984), James (1985), Georgia (1992), and Gabriel (1997). His 7th child, Lucas, was born to Luciana Gimenez in 1999. His children range in age from 17 to 45 years old.

Mick Jagger also has five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Jagger and Hamrick have been a couple since 2014 when Hamrick, who had previously met Mick Jagger at a Rolling Stones concert, reached out to offer her condolences after his longtime partner of 13 years, L’Wren Scott, committed suicide.

Hamrick currently resides in New York City and is expected to either move to Los Angeles where Jagger spends much of his time when he’s in the States, or to move to Connecticut to be closer to family. The Sun reports that she will give up her ballet career.
