Mick Jagger and girlfriend Melanie Hamrick are expecting a baby – her first, his eighth.

Jagger’s rep confirmed the news to the Los Angeles Times on Friday. The Rolling Stones frontman, 72, and the American Ballet Theatre dancer, 29, have reportedly been an item since 2014. The Virginia native headed to New York when she was 17 and became a full member of ABT’s corps de ballet in April 2004.

Jagger’s current brood – he has daughters and sons ranging in age from 45 to 17 – includes Karis, with Marcia Hunt; Jade, with Bianca Jagger; Lizzie, James, Georgia and Gabriel, with Jerry Hall; and Lucas, with Luciana Gimenez. He also had grandkids and even a great-granddaughter, who was born to Jade’s daughter Assisi in 2014.

Stones guitarist Ron Wood said in April that the band, which had played Cuba a month before that in the wake of President Barack Obama’s visit to Havana, would have a new studio album out “this year.”
