Mick Jagger has been called plenty of things throughout his lifetime — including “dad”. The 77-year-old rocker is the father of eight children, from his eldest daughter Karis, born in 1970, to his youngest son Deveraux, whom he welcomed most recently in 2016. The British rockstar is also the proud dad of supermodel daughter Georgia May Jagger, 29, whom he shares with his ex Jerry Hall, 64. Continue reading to find out more about all eight of his kids.
Mick’s oldest child Karis was born on November 4, 1970. Karis, who is the daughter of actress Marsha Hunt, had a short-lived career in Hollywood, making an appearance in 1997’s One Night Stand, and has also executive produced the TV mini-series Made in L.A.: Paul Fortune’s House in 2013, per IMDb. Since then, she has launched a website called Hey Sistah which is about “two women of color sharing our love of food, friendship and culture,” according to the site’s bio.“We’re inspired to do something a bit more interactive and engaging, where we can bring all of these shared passions for filmmaking, food, togetherness and social justice into one place, where we can share our journey, and hopefully help inspire yours. Karis wed her husband, Jonathan M. Watson in 2000, and they share two kids, Mazie and Zak.

James Jagger followed in his dad’s footsteps and pursued a career in the entertainment industry. Mick welcomed his mini-me son on August 28, 1985, and he went on to become a singer and guitarist for the punk-rock band Turbogeist. Some of his IMDb credits include the movies Vinyl and The Last Full Measure, The Unravelling and The Deep House. He wed his wife Anoushka Sharma, in 2015.
Mick’s mini-me daughter Georgia May Jagger has made a name for herself as a supermodel, and most recently fronted a Wrangler campaign. He welcomed her on January 12, 1992 with model Jerry Hall, and she would go on to cover magazines like Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. In early 2021, she appeared in the “Turn Heads. Capture Hearts” ad campaign for Wrangler. In one photo, the blonde beauty rocked a black tank top and turned her back to the camera to show off the back of the pants. Another shot showed her laying down on her side, offering the camera a subtle smile while rocking a simple white tee. Her star is certainly on the rise!
Mick and Jerry welcomed their last child, Gabriel, on December 9, 1997. He has remained largely out of the public eye, however he announced his engagement to Andrea Winzenried, in January 2020. According to Tatler, the announcement read, “The engagement is announced between Gabriel, son of Jerry Murdoch of Texas, and Mick Jagger of London, and Anouk, daughter of Janine and Andrea Winzenried of Switzerland.”
Mick welcomed his second youngest child, Lucas on May 18, 1999, with ex-girlfriend Luciana. Like many of his older siblings, he appears to be pursuing a career in modeling. Most recently, he gave fans a glimpse at his post-op recovery, after undergoing surgery on his ears. He took to Instagram on April 5, posting a series of photos from his stay in the hospital. The first image in the carousel post featured Lucas with bandages wrapped around his head and an oxygen tube in his nose. The youngster looked like the spitting image of his famous father from decades ago, with his hair totally tussled and his smirking expression highlighting the clear resemblance between the 77-year-old rock star and his son.
Mick’s youngest son, whom he shares with Melanie Hamrick, Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger, was born in December 2016. In July 2016, he stunned fans when it was revealed that his then 29-year-old girlfriend was pregnant with his eighth child, and they were equally surprised when the couple revealed their bub’s very unique name. However, Basil was actually Mick’s late father’s first name, and Octavian means “born eighth” in Latin. So sweet!
