Mick Jagger's newborn son 'named Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger'
Sir Mick Jagger’s newborn son has been named Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger.
The 73-year-old rocker and his ex-lover Melanie Hamrick welcomed their son into the world on December 8 and an Instagram account that appears under the name of Elizabeth Jagger - who is one of Sir Mick’s seven other children - has seemingly confirmed the baby’s name.
The account features a close-up photograph of Sir Mick’s newborn and was captioned: “My beautiful baby brother Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger.”
The Instagram account has not been verified by the photo-sharing website, but more than 50,000 people follow the social media page.
Earlier this month, Sir Mick, who has children with five different women, made a last-minute dash across the Atlantic to attend the birth of his son.
The Rolling Stones icon boarded a private jet to New York City to be at the bedside of Melanie, who took Sir Mick by surprise when she rang to inform him of the impending birth of their first child.
A source previously said: “Mick knew the baby was imminent but did not believe his services would be needed so quickly. As soon as he found out, he caught the first plane he could to JFK Airport. There was no way he was going to miss it.”
Sir Mick’s private flight meant he arrived just in time for the birth of his son.
The insider added: “It was all very hectic, but thankfully he made it just in time. His relief was nearly as huge as the pride he felt when he welcomed his new son into the world.”
Sir Mick and Melanie are no longer a couple, but Sir Mick is keen to be hands-on with his son.
The ‘Street Fighting Man’ rocker has already bought Melanie a £5 million townhouse in New York, while he also intends to see his son as much as possible.
A very freakin OLD photo of The Rolling Stones Mick Jagger - not sure the date, or his age.
But we DO know that the great-grandfather is 73 rn. He and his 29 year old ballerina gf Melanie Hamrick, just gave birth to their first child together (his 8th overall) in NY on Thursday Dec 8th.
His 4th baby boy is only a part of his celebrations atm as he and his band mates are popping champagne for their first number 1 album in 22 years: Blue And Lonesome
It was also their first studio album in more than a decade, so you know! 🎉🎶👶🏻
No word just yet on the baby’s name. [Image: Unknown]
Alright now I have a picture of Ronnie Wood and Sally Wood and Mick Jagger and Melanie Hamrick pushing prams through a park and gossiping while Keith Richards and Patti Hansen and Charlie Watts and Shirley Watts walking behind them.
I don’t get why or how people can hate on Mick and Melanie. I mean, they’re a couple, they seem to really love each other and they’re both old enough to know what they have to do to prevent a pregnancy and since they most likely didn’t the pregnancy and therefore the child (or children) are (a) planned child(ren). And I don’t know this from personal experience but it’s probably the biggest happiness to know you’re awaiting (a) child(ren) with the person you love. And from pictures and his children we know he makes a good figure as father. So why can’t we all be happy for Mick and Melanie?
