Jade Jagger has told how a new grandchild and great grandchild brought comfort to her Rolling Stone dad Sir Mick, following the suicide of his lover L'Wren Scott.

The 42-year-old jewellery designer and her daughter Assisi gave birth within four weeks of each other and have shown off their youngsters in a photoshoot for Hello! magazine.

And Jade told the magazine: "My dad loves babies. He's really good with them and is a big family man.

"He's been through a difficult time but it's been great to have two new babies in the family with the joy they bring."

Sir Mick was devastated in March when his partner Scott was found dead in her New York apartment. He became a great grandfather for the first time in May when Assisi gave birth to daughter Ezra Key.

Jade - who was in the late stages of her pregnancy with third child Ray and her first with husband Adrian Fillary - said: "It was quite peculiar that the pregnancies happened at the same time.

"I can't help but have a sense of humour about it. But becoming a grandmother doesn't faze me or make me feel older. I don't feel like a grandmother, because the babies are so close in age it almost feels like they are brother and sister. It's been really great. We're lucky."

She said she delayed telling Assisi about her own pregnancy, partly because she wanted to ensure all was well, and "I also didn't want to take away from Assisi and make her feel like I had stolen her moment".

Assisi said: "She was really supportive when I told her about me. She told me a bit later, when she was four months gone. I was shocked but it's amazing for her and Adrian to have a baby because they are so happy together.

"I'm so happy it has ended up this way."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
