Since welcoming his first daughter, Karis Jagger, in 1970 with actress Marsha Hunt, Mick Jagger has grown his family extensively. The singer is currently a proud dad of eight and wouldn’t want to have it any other way.

In 2016, he welcomed his eighth child, Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger, 2, with his girlfriend, Melanie Hamrick, 32, and received a lot of backlash from his former Rolling Stones bandmate Keith Richards.

“It’s time for the snip — you can’t be a father at that age. Those poor kids!” Keith previously told the Wall Street Journal. However, after reflecting on his hurtful comment to Mick, Keith decided that it was time to swallow his pride and apologize. “I deeply regret the comments I made about Mick in the WSJ which were completely out of line. I have of course apologized to him in person,” he wrote via Twitter. 

Even though Mick doesn’t have a small family, he never forgets his children’s birthdays. On December 8, 2018, he gave his son Gabriel Jagger a sweet shoutout on Instagram. “Happy 21st birthday to my dear son Gabriel,” he wrote. What a great dad!
