Rock star Mick Jagger, already a great-grandfather, is set to become a dad again at age 72, reported the British tabloid The Sun on Thursday.

Mr. Jagger’s girlfriend of two years, 29-year-old American ballerina Melanie Hamrick, is about 3 months pregnant. The baby would be the Rolling Stones front man’s eighth child and Ms. Hamrick’s first. 

Mr. Jagger became a great-grandfather two years ago when granddaughter Assisi Jackson gave birth to a girl. Ms. Jackson is a few years younger than Ms. Hamrick.

“The plan is for Melanie to move out of New York and be based in L.A., where Mick spends a lot of time, or Connecticut where she knows people,” an anonymous source told The Sun.  “In reality, Melanie was coming toward the end of her career as a ballet dancer but has now had to give it up even ­earlier than planned.”

The Rolling Stones wrap up their Zip Code tour on Friday in Quebec City and will return on tour in October, with three concerts scheduled thus far: two in Indio, California, and one in Las Vegas.
