Ronnie Wood isn’t slacking off in the dad department.

The Rolling Stones guitarist is “the burper, walker, nappy changer and I’m still trying to work out when I can get to sleep in between all that,” he told Hello! magazine in a new interview introducing his newborn twin girls, Gracie Jane and Alice Rose.

“I have played the guitar to them and when I get round to it I will do some drawings,” Wood, 69, said.

He’s sharing more of his musical world than just his instrument, he said: “Mick [Jagger] popped in on the third day” after the twins were born in late May.

“He couldn’t wait to see them, I put one in each arm and took a photo,” Wood said.

Wife Sally, 38, told Hello! that the delivery was a tearful scene.

“Ronnie cut the cords and we just held our babies and looked at their little faces,” she said. “We both cried. You are just so happy and emotional, the tears are just there. Ronnie is so completely committed to being a dad, helping me, looking after us all.”

The days since have been happy ones.

“At the moment I’m just soaking up every moment we have,” Ronnie said. “I have Sally, I have my beautiful family and I have two little gorgeous dolly girls. All I can think is that someone up there really likes me.”

Ronnie has four children from his previous marriage, and 10 grandchildren.

WTH would a 69 year old man reproduce? So selfish.

life goes on on

I cannot stand if an old woman or old man like him trying to reproduce.
They make me sick.

Guest on

Considering both their ages, they probably spend tens of thousands of dollars having these babies. Couldn’t just adopt an older child, huh?

Poor kids will have to bury their father before they’re even adults.

Completely selfish on both counts.

poor babies….will not have a father in a few years especially given his hard rockin’ past. Their mom? Probably just a gold digger. Now with kids, she has support for life. What a shame.

Stacy on

welcome, beautiful ones

Sally on

Why on earth is it always, “She’s just a gold digger”, every time there is and age difference, and/or the wife isn’t the primary bread winner?! Gets old, people. Sometimes people just find each other and love each other regardless of the age difference. My aunt was 30 years younger than her husband, and she loved him very much. They had 2 children who were 25 and 27 years old when their father died..parents still married. You don’t know these people’s relationship…say congrats and move on, but stop just getting on every thread just to say something nasty! So unpleasant….

ELO on

My goodness people are nasty. Is it any business of yours?

They look like a very happy couple and their babies are adorable. I love their names.

sarah on

Love the twin girls names!

Oly on

Yup they look like a very happy couple.

Kat on

So nice to hear “normal” names for children that won’t cause them to be bullied. I could never understand how celebrities could saddle their kids with names like “Pilot Inspektor” and “Moxie Crimefighter” (“Apple” is started to sound pretty normal compared to the names that came after that one).

Congrats to the lovely couple.
