Some good news for Mick Jagger as he became a great-grandfather over the weekend

Veteran rock star Mick Jagger has become a great-grandfather for the first time.

Hello! reports that over the weekend the 70-year-old Rolling Stones singer's granddaughter Assisi Jackson and her boyfriend Alex Key welcomed a daughter into the world.

The new arrival is the first grandchild for Assisi's mother Jagger’s 42-year-old daughter Jade, who is due to give birth to her own baby boy next month.

Assisi, who is only 21, previously admitted her grandfather was delighted she was expecting a baby.

She remarked: “He said, ‘Well done,’ and I said, ‘I didn't have to try too hard.’“

It’s some welcome good news for Jagger, who was devastated in March following the suicide of his long-term girlfriend L'Wren Scott.

But Jackson reckons that Jagger won’t warm to the notion of being labelled a great-grandfather: "I imagine it's nice to be a great-grandad - although I'm not sure he likes the idea of getting old, or being called one.

"I call him Mick," she added. "I wouldn't start calling him Grandpa."
