Wood: Wife mistaken for daughter

Ronnie Wood has revealed that his wife Sally Humphreys has been mistaken as being his daughter.

The Rolling Stones guitarist admitted that people tend to wrongly think that his 35-year-old wife, whom he married in December 2012, is his offspring, because of the 31-year age difference. Ronnie's daughter Leah, with second wife Jo, is the same age as Sally.

He told Hello!: "Once in a while, she gets mistaken for my daughter."

Sally said: "We were getting off a plane just recently and someone said loudly, 'Oh my God, it's Keith Richards.' Then, to make it worse, they asked, 'Are you his daughter?' I was thinking, 'Please, just stop talking'."

The theatre producer said they're not fussed about the age gap, saying that they are soulmates.

She continued: "But that is the age gap, so it isn't unreasonable for someone to think that. It seems to bother other people more than it bothers us, and then you have to remember that you don't know those people because the people who do know us don't flinch about it.

"But it is what it is, and honestly maybe it's the old-soul-young-soul thing, but we don't notice it."

The theatre producer revealed she wished Ronnie was younger, so they would be able to grow old together.

"Do I wish Ronnie was younger? Yes, but only from the point of view that you can't go on forever so it's about the amount of time we'll have together," she said.
