Sir Mick, who is a great-grandfather, has seven children, whose ages range from 45 to 17.

The news comes just two months after Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood became a father again at 68 after his wife Sally Humphreys gave birth to twin girls.

Sir Mick and Melanie, who has reportedly performed with the American Ballet Theatre in New York, began dating after the suicide of L'Wren Scott in 2014, Sir Mick's partner of 13 years.

His latest child will be his eighth with five different women.

He has a son, Karis Hunt Jagger, 45, from his relationship with Marsha Hunt, and a daughter Jade, now 44, with his ex-wife Bianca.

Sir Mick had four children with his ex-partner Jerry Hall - Elizabeth, 32, James, 30, Georgia, 24, and Gabriel 19.

He also had a son, Lucas, 17, following a brief relationship with Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez. The liaison ended Sir Mick's 22-year relationship with Jerry, who is now married to media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

Sir Mick has five grandchildren and became a great-grandfather in May 2014 when Jade's daughter Assisi gave birth to a baby girl.

In May, Ronnie revealed that Sir Mick, who turns 73 on July 26, was one of the first people to visit his newborns and said: "Mick popped in on the third day. He couldn't wait to see them."
