Rolling Stones: Ron Wood becomes father to twins at 68

Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has become a father to twins just two days before his 69th birthday.

The BBC reports Woods and wife Sally became new parents to twin girls late on Monday evening, according to Wood's publicist.

"Ronnie & Sally Wood are delighted to announce the birth of their twins Gracie Jane (6lb) & Alice Rose (5.7lb),” read the official announcement. “The girls arrived on 30 May at 22:30 and all are doing brilliantly. The babies are perfect."

"Thank you all so much for the love," tweeted Sally on Tuesday. “Can't believe our babies are a day old already. They are wonderful."

The twins are Wood's fifth and sixth children, but the first for him and his wife, who is a theatre producer; the couple married in 2012.

Prior to the twins’ arrival and his impending 69th birthday on June 1, Wood posted a photo of himself and his dog (above), writing “waiting #38 weeks.”

Wood has four children already - Jesse Wood with his first wife, former model Krissy Wood, daughter Leah and son Tyrone from his second marriage to Jo, and Jamie - Jo's son from a previous marriage whom Wood adopted.

The Rolling Stones will release a new live collection, “Totally Stripped”, on June 3 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.

The set expands on the 1995 unplugged album, “Stripped”, which delivered acoustic and alternate versions of the band’s classics alongside select covers of tunes by Bob Dylan and Robert Johnson, among others.
