Mick Jagger and Melanie Hamrick – relationship
Mick, 75 is a great grandfather. But he is in no way slowing down in personal and professional life. His zeal for fatherhood is still high. Melanie is the mother of his eighth and youngest child Devereaux who is 22 months old now.

‘He’s the most incredible, wonderful, loving father,’
‘And, to me, he’s the most wonderful man in the world.’
The couple is dating for 4 years now. It was in February 2014 when they met in Tokyo. In June 2014, they were seen together on the balcony of his penthouse at the five-star Dolder Grand hotel in Zürich. Their love and relationship are strong despite the distance and age gap. She works in New York while Mick is in Chelsea, London. Talking about the great father and husband, Melanie said:
‘Mick and I are fantastic co-parents and I don’t feel as though I’m the sole caregiver at all. I never feel a lack of support, regardless of our not being based in the same city. I feel as though I have more support from him than some of my married friends get from their husbands. With WhatsApp, FaceTime and social media, you can now have a close relationship even long distance. I think the norms of relationships have changed. Or maybe I’m just really modern and independent,’
