She gave birth to his eighth child: Mick Jagger gets engaged to 36-year-old ballerina at 80
The famous British musician, lead singer of the iconic rock band The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger proposed to his chosen one, ballerina Melanie Hamrick, who is 44 years younger than him. The couple has been together since 2014, and in 2016, the woman gave birth to the rocker's eighth child, a son, Devereaux Octavian Basil Jagger.
The fact that the couple got married is reported by insiders from their inner circle. They claim that Hamrick flaunted a luxurious ring on her ring finger during a recent trip to the United States with her lover, The Mirror reports.
"Melanie was at the American Ballet Theater and told her friends that she was engaged to Mick. She made it clear that her ring was for an engagement, and now she's his fiancée. Her family also knows they're engaged and is thrilled about it ," the publication quoted an insider as saying.
For the 79-year-old rocker, who, as we have already noted, is the father of eight children, this marriage will be only the second after a 45-year hiatus. His first official wife was Bianca Jagger (from 1971 to 1978).
Even now, many fans do not believe that the musician has decided to get rid of his bachelor status. Rumors are already circulating online that it won't come to marriage and wedding, and the engagement story is just a PR stunt.
Whatever they say, Jagger and Hamrick have been together for almost 10 years. They have a son together, who, by the way, is two years younger than one of the star's great-grandchildren.
And Melanie herself is younger than four of the artist's eight children. However, it seems that the big age difference does not prevent the couple from maintaining a healthy relationship.
It should be added that the singer and the ballerina began dating after Jagger broke up with his previous girlfriend, model and designer L'Wren Scott, who committed suicide.
