The Rolling Stones frontman is about to embark on a new fatherhood journey—for the eighth time!—at age 72.

It looks like Mick Jagger is ready to start it up one more time! The 72-year-old Rolling Stones legend is set to welcome baby number 8 with his girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, who is more than 40 years his junior.

ET reports Hamrick, a 29-year-old ballerina, is indeed pregnant with the couple's child. Jagger is also a father to Karis, who will be at least 45 years older than her step-sibing once he or she is born. The soon-to-be dad of eight also counts daughters Jade, Elizabeth, and Georgia, and sons James, Gabriel, and Lucas among his brood. The eternally young singer also has five grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Who will be older than his next child.

But Jagger isn't the only rock god for whom time is on his side; band mate Ronnie Wood, 69, is also a new dad to twins. And there are plenty of other celeb dads who had kids after 50, including fellow music industry heavy weights Billy Joel and Rod Stewart.

So, is being in a band, or a Hollywood actor who has managed to win fans for decades the secret fountain of youth? Maybe. Is it too late for my hubby to explore a music or drama career and become a world-famous celebrity? Probably.

In any case, congrats to Mick and Melanie!
