The Internet is having an absolute field day over the fact that Mick Jagger is set to be an 8-time father at 73! Creating hysterical memes & tweets, fans have relentlessly been mocking the rockstar all over social media — and honestly, their posts are BEYOND creative!
Mick Jagger, who will turn 73 on July 26, is expecting his eighth child with ballerina girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, 29. And the Internet is absolutely losing it! This will be Melanie’s first child, but clearly the Rolling Stones co-founder is a vet when it comes to parenting. After all, Mick already has seven children ranging in ages from 45 to 17. And in 2014 he even became a great grandfather when his then 21-year-old granddaughter, Assisi Jackson, gave birth to a baby girl.
Understandably “Mick Jagger” began trending as soon as Mick’s representatives announced the news on July 14. And since then, fans have been teasing the rockstar to no end. But at the same time, most are just happy he’s not dead! Check out some of our favorite tweets below:

Saw that Mick Jagger is trending. Thought he might be dead until I realized Mick Jagger is immortal.

Assumed Mick Jagger was trending because he died and while I’m glad that’s not true, I’m a little freaked out that he’s still reproducing.

Pretty hilarious, right? Some fans though, have taken things a step further and have chastised the rocker for his “irresponsibility” — stating that his newest child will grow up without a father. But we certainly don’t see this as our place to judge. We are just very happy for Mick and Melanie and wish them both the best during this exciting journey!
