Mick Jagger is a dad for the EIGHTH time with his fifth different baby mama! So who exactly is Melanie Hamrick, the woman who gave birth to the rocker’s newborn son? Get to know her right here!
1. She’s a ballet dancer
Melanie Hamrick, 30, has had to put her dance career on hold while carrying Mick Jagger’s baby, but she makes her living off being a ballerina and dances for the American Ballet Theater! She started dancing when she was just three years old and got her first contract with ABT at 17.
2. She’s been engaged
Before meeting Mick, Melanie was engaged to a fellow dancer, Jose Carreno. However, when he accepted a job directing the Ballet San Jose in 2013, the relationship ended after six years
3. She met Mick through work
The American Ballet Theater happened to be touring in Tokyo at the same time as the Rolling Stones in Feb. 2014, and Melanie was able to hang out backstage at the show with her friends. Mick noticed her and invited her to dinner and they started spending time together. Unfortunately, there was a road block when Mick’s girlfriend of 13 years, L’Wren Scott, died in March 2014, but by June, Melanie and Mick were seeing each other again.
4. She has a new $7 million townhouse
Being with Mick Jagger has its perks — the Rolling Stones singer purchased a $7 million townhouse for his girlfriend in New York City in October. NO BIG DEAL, RIGHT?
5. She’s from Virginia
Melanie was born in Williamsburg, Virginia, and got her start in dance at Eastern Virginia School of the Performing Arts. She then went on to train in Washington D.C. at the Kirov Academy of Ballet.
