The Rolling Stones co-founder Mick Jagger is celebrating his 78th birthday and has been in the music industry for 60 years. During that time, he has become a legend both for his accolades and his personal life. Jagger is, for many, the personification of what the rock & roll spirit is all about: music, drugs, and women.

Through the years, the musician has been linked to several famous women, including Marianne Faithfull, Marsha Hunt, Jerry Hall, L'Wren Scott, and Melanie Hamrick. However, he only got married once to actress Bianca Perez-Mora Macias. Jagger is a father of eight, grandfather of five, and great-grandfather of three adorable little kids.

HIS ROCKSTAR LIFE

The Rolling Stones signed their first record deal in 1963 with Decca Records. A year later, in 1964, they topped the charts for the first time with their cover of Bobby Womack's "It's All Over Now."

The band started gaining fame not only for their sound but also for their rebellious image. Jagger's sex appeal and magnetic presence on and off the stage was something that drew crowds towards them through the years.

HIS LIFE WITH WOMEN

Jagger had many female admirers, and as the band's fame grew, so did his encounters with women. Some reports point out that the singer has been with at least 4,000 different women throughout his six-decade-long career. But out of those, only five managed to earn a permanent spot in the lothario's life.

He was in a relationship with songwriter Marianne Faithfull from 1966 to 1970. Together, they were arrested twice after police found drug paraphernalia during two different raids—the first at Keith Richards' house and the second at Jagger's.

HIS FIRST AND ONLY MARRIAGE

Coinciding with his relationship with Faithfull, model Marsha Hunt came into Jagger's life in 1969. At the time, she was married to Mike Ratledge, so she and Jagger started a love affair that lasted for about ten months. She is the mom of the musician's first child, Karis Hunt. 

Afterward, Jagger went on to start a relationship with former Nicaraguan actress Bianca Perez Moreno de Macias, whom he married in May 1971. The pair welcomed a daughter, Jade Sheena Jezebel Jagger, in October of that same year.

HIS GROWING FAMILY

After six years of marriage, they separated in 1977 and divorced in 1978 after Macias found out that Jagger had an affair with Playboy model Bebe Buell. Soon after, he moved on to date model Jerry Hall, with whom he welcomed four of his children

They shared sons James Leroy Augustin, born in 1985, and Gabriel Luke Beauregard, born in 1997; and daughters Elizabeth Scarlett, born in 1984, and Georgia May Ayeesha, born in 1992. Although Jagger and Hall had a wedding ceremony in 1990 in Bali, Indonesia, the marriage was deemed invalid in England.

LIFE AFTER HIS DIVORCE

Given this fact, when Jagger cheated on Hall with Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez Morad, a divorce wasn't necessary after they separated. Luciana gave birth to Jagger's seventh child, Lucas Maurice, in 1999.

The rocker then went on to have a short-lived relationship with model Sophie Dahl before getting involved with designer L'Wren Scott, whom he dated for 13 years until her death in 2014.

SETTLING DOWN WITH MELANIE

That same year, Jagger started dating American ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick, who is four decades younger than the musician. She birthed Jagger's eighth and youngest child, son Deveraux Octavian in 2016.

Deveraux, now 4 years old, is not the latest addition to Jagger's large family, however, as the boy is already a great-uncle to Jagger's grandchildren. His daughters, Jade and Karis, have children of their own.

BEING A GRANDFATHER

Out of Jagger's eight kids, only his daughters Karis and Jade are known to have children. Karis is a mother of two, Mazie and Zack, whom she shares with husband Jonathan M. Watson. Jade, on the other hand, has two daughters, Assisi Lola, born in 1992, and Amba Isis, born in 1996, with ex-husband Piers Jackson.

In 2014, Jade had her third child, Ray, with her second husband, Adrian Fillary. That same year, Jade also became a grandmother for the first time. Assisi, then 21, welcomed her first daughter Ezra with boyfriend, Alex Key, in May.

HIS THREE GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN

Talking to Harpers' Bazaar in 2015, Jade explained that although she felt protective of Assisi when she found out about the pregnancy, she never felt her daughter was "too young" to become a mom. "I couldn't ever feel that she was too young, as I'd had her when I was even younger," Jade said. "She could see that I knew she'd be great."

Assisi and Key welcomed their second daughter, Romy Pearl Ciara, on March 28, 2019. And only five months later, on August 6, Assisi's sister Amba welcomed her first child, River, who was born prematurely ten weeks before his delivery date.

JAGGER AS A FATHER

Having eight children, Mick believes he's pretty good at fatherhood. Opening up about it, he said: "I think I'm a pretty good father. I have a nice affinity with children, not just my own. Kids keep you young, and they keep you laughing."

More recently, he welcomed a new addition to his family, making fans gush. It was a furry cat named Nero that won the hearts of his followers on Instagram. 

This year, Mick made a comeback in the music industry by releasing a new single called "Eazy Sleazy" with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. The idea for the song is the COVID-19 pandemic, touching on conspiracy theories, lives lost, vaccinations, and of course, hope for the future.
