Mick Jagger and girlfriend choose unusual name for their newborn son

Rolling Stones frontman Jagger, 73, welcomed his eighth child earlier this month.

After becoming a father again at the age of 73, Mick Jagger has given his eighth child a unique name.

Jagger’s daughter Lizzie shared a picture of her father’s newborn son on Instagram with the caption: “So proud of my beautiful baby brother Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger.”


The Rolling Stones frontman now has eight children: Karis Hunt Jagger (born 1970), Jade Jagger (b. 1971), Lizzie Jagger (b. 1984), James Jagger (b. 1985), Georgia Jagger (b. 1992), Gabriel Jagger (b. 1997), Lucas Jagger (b. 1999) and newborn son Deveraux.

Jagger and his girlfriend, American ballerina Melanie Hamrick, welcomed their baby son in New York City on December 8, his publicist confirmed. A statement read: “They are both delighted. Mick was at the hospital for the arrival. Mother and baby are doing well and we request that the media respect their privacy at this time.”

Jagger is currently promoting new Rolling Stones album, ‘Blues And Lonesome’. Their 25th studio album, it was recorded in just three days at British Grove Studios in west London and sees the band return to “their roots and the passion for blues music”.

Eric Clapton contributed to the new album, with slide guitar on the track ‘Everybody Knows About My Good Thing’ and lead guitar on ‘I Can’t Quit You Baby’. Read the NME verdict on ‘Blues and Lonesome’ here.
