Just two days before he turns 69, Ronnie Wood has fathered twins.
In a statement, the Rolling Stones guitarist says that they are “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.”
The girls are Wood’s fifth and sixth children overall, and his first with wife Sally Humphreys. Wood has admitted that Humphreys, 38, is sometimes mistaken for his daughter, but the age gap doesn’t bother the couple. Humphreys told Hello! Magazine, “Maybe it’s the old-souls-young-soul thing, but we don’t notice it.”
