By Amanda Wicks

Congratulations are in order for Mick Jagger, who—at the ripe age of 73—became a father again today. The Rolling Stones’ frontman welcomed his eighth child with girlfriend Melanie Hamrick.

Jagger was present for the baby’s arrival, which took place at a hospital in New York. “Mother and baby are doing well and we request that the media respect their privacy at this time,” Jagger and Hamrick shared in a joint statement (via BBC News). There’s no word yet on whether Jagger’s newest addition is a boy or girl.

Jagger’s other children range in age from 17 to 45 years old, and he has five grandchildren. Jagger’s newest child will be in good company age-wise with his great-grandchild, who was born in 2014 to Assisi, the daughter of Jade Jagger.

Fatherhood isn’t the only thing Jagger has to celebrate these days. The Rolling Stones recently released a new album Blue and Lonesome, which covers some of their favorite blues artists and influences.
