‘My Little Stars’: Ronnie Wood and Wife Sally Reveal They’re Expecting Twin Girls

02/22/2016 at 02:00 PM ET

It’ll be girls for Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood and pregnant wife Sally.

The father of four revealed the sex of his twins on Sunday after Sally left the iconic rock band’s tour.

While Wood, 68, took the stage in Rio, Brazil, Sally, 38, returned home for fear of the Zika virus — prompting the big announcement.

“My wife @sallywood has not been ‘sent home’ from the @rollingstones tour,” Wood tweeted over the weekend. “Our twins come first and we decided the Zika virus & excessive flying was too dangerous for them.”

He continued, “Our baby GIRLS are growing beautifully. Thank you for the love!”

Alongside the revelation, Wood included a hand-drawn photo of Sally and their daughters-to-be, as well as a nude shot of the expectant mom’s growing baby bump.

Wood re-shared the images to her own Twitter account, adding, “Yes, we’re having two girls! So wonderfully happy & excited, we can’t wait to meet them.”

The couple, who were married in 2012, broke the news of the theatre producer’s pregnancy in December.

Sally is due in June, and the baby girls will join the impressive Wood brood, which includes sons Jamie, 41, Jesse, 39, and Tyrone, 32, and daughter, Leah, 37, as well as the rocker’s 10 grandchildren.

The mom-to-be’s decision to leave the Stones’ tour is not surprising, as the mosquito-borne Zika virus can be transmitted to fetuses through a pregnant woman’s amniotic fluid. Further, it’s thought to be connected to microcephaly, a neurological disorder that leads to babies being born with much-smaller-than-normal heads and ultimately creates developmental problems.

He’s 68, has 4 grown kids, 10 grandchildren- do I have to say it?

Just Sayin' on

Why did he draw them to look like little devils??? Geez.

I don’t care if couples have large age gaps. They’re adults, and can do what they want. However, I’m a little creeped out when one of them has children the same age as significant other. The year you graduated should not be something you have in common with your step parents…

Whoopdi-do. The guy is a heavy drinker and smoker, he will be lucky if he sees these girls’ fifth birthday. When almost all of your grown children are older than your wife, it might be a clue that your baby making days should be over.

His old ass probably thinks, if he has more children at this age, he will live longer. Or, she has some serious daddy issues. Use to be a saying, in some cultures, that old men will give a young woman worms if she keeps screwing around with them and having babies, UGH!

I just threw up a bit, ugh.

Yuck, just yuck. Old man has a baby.

To purposely enter into new fatherhood knowing that your time is very short (he ain’t gonna make it past 80, I guarantee) is ultimately extremely selfish.

What @Sally said.

I met him years ago when the Stones did a show in Pittsburgh, and he was a sweet guy. And she’s really pretty. I wish them the best, no matter how old he is.

kemmy on

Ovz on

The picture is funny.

I can’t believe he’s not aware that she’s using him for his money. Not only is he WAY too old to be having kids, but he’s being used. She knows what she’s doing. She’s securing her future with him. She know he probably won’t be alive much longer. She’ll get a good chunk of his wealth when he passes (if she’s still married to him by that point).

Um he is 68 and she is 38, they have 30 years age difference.
