Mick Jagger is set to become a great-grandfather for the first time, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror says that the Rolling Stones frontman's granddaughter Assisi, aged 21, is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Alex. According to sources, the 70-year-old singer is pleased at the news, although his daughter Jade, 42, is 'expecting some ribbing' at becoming a grandmother.

"She and Alex are thrilled and broke the news to their immediate families last week," they said. "Jade was a little taken aback at first, not least because it means she will be a grandmother by the age of 42. She's expecting some ribbing from her showbiz pals."

They added: "Mick is delighted and has no qualms about being a great-grandfather. He's been joking about becoming a great, great, granddad and still performing!" Jagger has seven children from four relationships, with his daughters Karis and Jade coming from his relationships with Marsha Hunt and Bianca Jagger respectively. He and Jerry Hall have four children together – Elizabeth, James, Georgia and Gabriel – while his youngest child, 14-year-old son Lucas, is from his relationship with Brazilian TV presenter Luciana Gimenez.

Earlier this month, The Rolling Stones confirmed plans to release their Hyde Park gig on DVD and Blu-Ray in November. The band headlined two nights in the London park in July of this year (2013), following on from their Glastonbury festival performance. The DVD, titled 'Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live', will be released on November 11 and captures the band's full performance, a full two-hour set plus backstage footage. A live album recorded during the shows has already been released.
