Cape Town – Mick Jagger has become a dad for the eighth time.

The 73-year-old and his American ballerina girlfriend, Melanie Hamrick, 29, welcomed a healthy baby boy in New York on Thursday, BBC reported.

According to a statement from the couple, Mick was at the hospital for the birth and they are overjoyed by the arrival.

The happy news however, caused some confusion amongst fans on Twitter.

Some thought he had died because of the phonetic similarities between dad and dead...

And some just couldn’t believe he welcomed another child at his age...

Nevertheless, the now father of eight, grandfather of five and great-grandfather of one is alive and well and excited about his newborn son.
