Ronnie Wood has fathered his fifth and sixth children, just two days before he turns 69. His wife Sally Humphreys, 38, gave birth to two daughters on Monday.
In a statement, the Rolling Stones guitarist said that they were “delighted to announce the birth of their twins Gracie Jane (6lb) & Alice Rose (5.7lb). The girls arrived on 30 May at 10.30pm and all are doing brilliantly. The babies are perfect.”
These are Wood’s first children with Humphreys, who is a theatre producer. They met at the Theatre Royal on Drury Lane in London, where Wood was exhibiting his art.
He has one son, Jesse, with his first wife, the ex-model Krissy Wood. He also has a daughter, Leah, and a son, Tyrone, from his second marriage to ex-wife Jo. He also adopted Jamie, who is Jo’s son from a previous marriage.
In an interview with Hello! magazine, Humpreys claimed that the couple doesn’t notice their age gap – which is just over 30 years – but Wood has admitted that people sometimes mistake her for his daughter.
She said: “Maybe it’s the old-souls-young-soul thing, but we don’t notice it.”
