Jagger and Hamrick have been in a relationship since 2014 and have seen each other regularly over the past two years, despite living ‘independent lives’.

They announced Hamrick was pregnant in July, shortly after Jagger’s bandmate Ronnie Wood welcomed twins, making him a dad-of-six.

Jagger has seven children other children – Georgia, James, Jade, Elizabeth, Lucas, Karis and Gabriel – who range in age from 45 to 17. He is also a grandfather of two.

The baby’s gender and name have not yet been revealed.
