Mick Jagger has quite the expanding family tree. The 70-year-old Rolling Stones front man just became a new great-grandfather. That’s right – the icon’s granddaughter Assisi gave birth over the weekend to a baby girl.
That makes Mick a great-grandfather, and his daughter Jade a grandmother – just as she herself is expecting a new baby at age 42. Hello! magazine reported the name of the newest addition to the Jagger clan has not been released.
When Assisi’s pregnancy made the news last September, she addressed the issue of the rapidly-expanding Jagger generations, stating:
“The women in our family just tend to have children young, it runs in the genes.”
Jade Jagger was 20 years old when she had Assisi. Assisi herself is now 21.
Mick Jagger has seven children from four different women. Jade is the daughter of Mick and his first wife Bianca, to whom Mick was married for nine years, from 1971 to 1980. Mick’s two youngest children are sons Gabriel and Lucas, aged 16 and 14.
Assisi is just one of Mick’s four grandchildren – but he might not take kindly to those elderly terms of endearment. Assisi also told Hello!:
“I call him Mick – I wouldn’t start calling him Grandpa.”
Mick Jagger denied paternity of his eldest daughter Karis until she was 12 years old. Now 43, she and Mick reportedly have a good relationship. The Daily Mail reported in March that Karis and Jagger’s other children supported him emotionally after the suicide of his partner, designer L’Wren Scott.
The new baby may bring some welcome celebration in Jagger’s life. Following Scott’s death, the Rolling Stones postponed scheduled tour dates in Australia and New Zealand. Rolling Stone reported today that the band is due to start touring again May 26, with a gig in Oslo, Norway.
Jade Jagger is reportedly due any day. She tweeted a picture of her expanding belly on February 11, noting that she was already six months along:

Jade is a successful jewelry designer who opened a new upscale location in London earlier this month. As the daughter of Mick Jagger, she may have been born with certain advantages – one of them being “the Jagger work ethic,” as stated by The Daily Mail. As the family gets bigger, that work ethic may be further spread around by Mick and his clan.
