Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood turned 73 years old on June 1. The music legend celebrated his birthday just two days after his twin daughters, Gracie and Alice, turned four, and he posed for a family photo with them during their shared birthday week.
On the official Rolling Stones Instagram page, the band posted a snap of the musician posing in a red velvet jacket and holding his signature guitar. The post received more than 44,000 likes and more than 800 comments as fans wished the veteran rocker a happy birthday.
“Happy birthday Ronnie! Keep rockin’,” one fan wrote, before adding a guitar and heart emoji.
Ronnie’s wife Sally, 42, also shared a photo of the rocker to celebrate his special day. In a sweet pic, their twin daughters were shown wearing matching sunshine dresses as they hugged their famous father’s legs.
Ronnie later took to social media to share a video of him thanking fans for all of their birthday messages. In the video, the Rolling Stones guitarist was wearing sunglasses as he stood outside in a white T-shirt and black jeans amid gorgeous, sunny weather. The Grammy-winning musician looked happy and healthy as he blew kisses to his followers.
In comments to the post, people from all over the world left even more messages for Ronnie.
“Happiest birthday and many more!” one follower wrote.
“Happy Birthday Ronnie!! Keep on rocking! I hope you are eternal!” another chimed in.
“Happy Happy Birthday!!! You’re such a big part of my life’s soundtrack!” a third fan added.
Ronnie’s birthday photo and video come on the heels of his twin daughters’ fourth birthday. He shared a rare picture of his little girls on social media to mark the girls’ big day on May 30.
In the image, the lookalike sisters were all smiles as they sat on a garden bench in the woods with matching pink skirts and adorable shirts that had the number “4” on them.
Gracie Jane and Alice Rose are Ronnie’s daughters with his third wife, Sally. He also has four older children from his two previous marriages.
With his wild party days long behind him, Ronnie has been vocal about his sobriety and the fact that he got a “second chance” as a dad later in life. In 2017, Sally told Hello magazine that he’s like royalty when it comes to his birthday due to the anniversary of his sobriety.
“Ronnie’s like the Queen – he has two birthdays,” she told the outlet. “He has the day he was born and the day he got sober, which is also a day that deserves attention.”
