Mick Jagger To Become A Great-Grandfather

The granddaughter of the Rolling Stones star, 21-year-old Assisi Jagger, is expecting her first baby with boyfriend

We love a pregnancy announcement, so it’s great to hear that Jade Jagger’s daughter, Assisi, 21, is expecting her first child with her chef boyfriend Alex next April. The grandaddy of rock and roll, 70-year-old Mick Jagger will now become a great-grandad for the first time, he already has seven kids and four grandchildren, including Assisi. 

In an exclusive interview with Hello! magazine Assisi said giving birth at a young age runs in the family. Her mum Jade Jagger, 42, had Assisi when she was just 20 years old.

So how will Assisi cope with the demands of parenthood? 'I grew up quite quickly and wouldn't have considered having a child if I was doing what my friends are doing at this stage, messing around,’ she says.

And it doesn’t look like she’s picked up granddad’s partying genes either, 'I don't drink, I don't smoke and I'm very settled.'

Mick Jagger’s busy preparing for another Rolling Stones tour, but Assisi says her grandfather was really excited about the news when she phoned the Rolling Stone to tell him she was pregnant.

'He said, "Well done," and I said, "I didn't have to try too hard." I imagine it's nice to be a great-grandad – although I'm not sure he likes the idea of getting old, or being called one. I call him Mick – I wouldn't start calling him grandpa.’

We’re also pretty pleased to hear the Jagger Empire is expanding again, how did your family react to hearing your pregnancy news?
