Ronnie Wood and Sally Humphreys have been married since 2012 (PA).

Sir Mick, 76, shared a black and white picture of himself and Wood, who is turning 73, on Instagram.

Woodโ€™s wife, Sally Humphreys, 42, shared a video of the guitarist on her Instagram account, in which he says: โ€œHi everybody. Stay positive today, try and get some fresh air. Bye.โ€

The musician married theatre director Humphreys in 2012 and in May 2016 they welcomed their twins, Gracie Jane and Alice Rose.

A few days before celebrating his own birthday, Wood shared a picture of his daughters on Instagram, to wish them a happy fourth birthday.

Wood, who has six children in total, told Hello! magazine in 2018 that he was โ€œblessed with a natural resource of energy, just like my kids.โ€

In 2017 he revealed that he underwent an emergency operation after being diagnosed with lung cancer.
