Mick Jagger can get no satisfaction!
The Rolling Stones frontman, 73, and his girlfriend, 29-year-old ballerina Melanie Hamrick, welcomed their first child together on Thursday, Dec. 8, his publicist confirmed.
“Melanie Hamrick and Mick Jagger’s son was born today in New York and they are both delighted,” a statement from the couple reads.
Continues the statement, “Mick was at the hospital for the arrival. Mother and baby are doing well.”
Melanie Hamrick is a ballet dancer and had to had to put her dance career on hold while carrying Mick Jagger’s baby, but she makes her living off being a ballerina and dances for the American Ballet Theatre! She started dancing when she was just three years old and got her first contract with ABT at 17.
Before meeting Mick, Melanie was engaged to a fellow dancer, Jose Carreno. However, when he accepted a job directing the Ballet San Jose in 2013, the relationship ended after six years
The American Ballet Theatre happened to be touring in Tokyo at the same time as the Rolling Stones in Feb. 2014, and Melanie was able to hang out backstage at the show with her friends.
Mick noticed her and invited her to dinner and they started spending time together. Unfortunately, there was a road block when Mick’s girlfriend of 13 years, L’Wren Scott, died in March 2014, but by June, Melanie and Mick were seeing each other again.
Being with Mick Jagger has its perks — the Rolling Stones singer purchased a $7 million townhouse for his girlfriend in New York City in October.
Melanie was born in Williamsburg, Virginia, and got her start in dance at Eastern Virginia School of the Performing Arts. She then went on to train in Washington D.C. at the Kirov Academy of Ballet.
