The rocker, 73, smuggled his on-off lover into luxury hotels as the Rolling Stones played this year’s dates in Latin America.
The Sunday People can reveal the legendary rocker conceived on a Rolling Stones’ tour.
Sir Mick, 73, smuggled on-off lover Melanie Hamrick into his palatial hotels as the band toured Latin America earlier this year.
Pals think the tot, which will be Jagger’s eighth, was the result of a romantic meeting after Melanie jetted to the Columbian capital Bogata in March.
It was where the Stones played their first ever gig to a throng of 45,000 fans at the Memesio Camacho El Campin Stadium ahead of their final historic gig in Cuba.
The New York ballerina, who aged 29 is younger than most of his children, was also believed to have enjoyed a late night tryst with him in Mexico City earlier in March, after Mick took to the stage alongside bandmates Charlie Watts, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood.
A source close to the lothario, who’s believed to have slept with more 4,000 women, said: “It was all very hush hush but she was there - in Bogata and Mexico and Bogata.
“He made sure she was looked after but wasn’t keen on making a song and dance of it - they have always been casual.
“One can only think that he got a little carried away with all the talk over the imminent arrival of Ronnie’s twins.”
The baby news is believed to have shocked his ex partner Jerry Hall, now married to Rupert Murdoch, and there’s thought to have been some mild ribbing from fellow bandmates.
Not only does the Jumpin’ Jack Flash crooner already have seven childern, he also’s a granddad five times over.
In May 2014 he also became a great-grandad - when his daughter Jade gave birth to her own daughter, Assi.
To his grandkids, he is “Pappy”, a warm-hearted family man who loves playing hide-and-seek in the garden.
But this latest twist in Sir Mick’s extraordinary life has not prompted any knee-jerk reaction from Mick to set up home with the youthful mother he met just weeks before the suicide of his longterm partner L’Wren Scott.
According to friends, he has vowed to support the dancer and pay childcare when she gives birth. But their casual dalliances will not culminate in any big romance.
Melanie is comfortably set up in New York, with little intention of relocating to England. There is no intention to start seeing each other exclusively.
Whether relations between the pair remain as amicable after their child’s birth, is another matter.
You only have to look to Sir Mick’s colourful history, to see the trail of scorned women he’s left behind.
In the latter half of the Sixties, troubled singer Marianne Faithfull fell for Sir Mick’s charms - leaving her husband John Dunbar to shack up with him.
In 1968 she fell pregnant with his daughter - who she’d already named Corrina - but tragically miscarried at seven months.
By then Jagger had already added another notch to his bedpost, in the guise of American actress Marsha Hunt.
The following year, in 1969, and struggling with a hopeless addiction to heroin and reportedly stung by Mick’s betrayal, Marianne tried to kill herself.
She swallowed 50 sleeping pills, washing them down with hot chocolate while on a flight to Australia with him.
Shortly after arriving at their hotel, the 22-year-old slipped into a coma for six days.
She was given her last rites, but made a miraculous recovery.
Two years ago, she described the pressure of their relationship as “enormous” but said that for many women, herself included, her and Jagger’s romance had obviously felt worth it.
His charm and status, it seems, was a toxic drug to the opposite sex.
As Marianne recuperated Jagger poured out his heart - but not to her.
Instead, it was Marsha that filled his head.
He wrote her a series of emotional love letters - written on headed notepaper from the same hotel in which Marianne had nearly died.
Not long after starting their passionate affair, Marsha fell pregnant, with Jagger talking about wanting a son, who, in typical flower-power fashion, he wanted to call Midnight Dream.
But within three months Jagger was already going cold on their relationship, turning his attentions to a string of other women, including a 22-year-old American called Janice Kenner, who he employed as his cook.
Marsha went on to have Jagger’s first child. Not a son, but a daughter called Karis, who is now 45.
He became a dad for the first time, aged 27.
LA-based Karis is now close to her wayward father - reading a poem at L’Wren’s funeral two years ago and support him in his time of need.
But for many years in the Seventies, her mother Marsha and Jagger were locked in a bitter legal battle - with Jagger suggesting at one point that Karis was not his, and refusing to cover childcare costs.
Within months, she too fell pregnant.
Nine months after meeting, in May 1971, they married in St Tropez, France, where the band had gone to escape a tax debt that they owed to the British government.
That October, they had a little girl called Jade - who, now aged 44 has gone on to be a successful model and jewelry designer.
Bianca later claimed: “My marriage ended on my wedding day,” after Jagger demanded she sign a pre-nuptial agreement in the morning and news of the wedding got out and they were mopped by people turning up.
Supermodel-turned-actress Jerry later wrote a book about their 23-year relationship - confirming that he repeatedly cheated on her.
She described him as a “dangerous sexual predator” who had been weaned off heroin but had replaced his drug addiction with sex.
She says he had even convinced her to begin an affair with him while she was engaged to Roxy Music legend Bryan Ferry.
And she claims that on the night before her Balinese wedding to the singer in 1990, she stifled fears he was having an affair with Carla Bruni, now the wife of French president Nicolas Sarkozy who was then the girlfriend of musician Eric Clapton.
But despite his infidelity, Jerry has spoken of her enduring love for the man who was gentle and charming and had a ‘talent for feelings’.
it was a love which continued until 1999, when it emerged that Brazilian model Luciana Morad was pregnant with his child.
Famously, Morad was described by Hall as ‘the straw that broke the camel’s back’ when she became pregnant by the philandering singer.
Lucas, Jagger’s seventh child, was born on May 18, 1999.
Jerry discovered the boy’s existence while hosting a dinner party with Mick at their then shared home in Richmond, west London.
She was apparently handed a copy of a newspaper at their front door which revealed details of the child’s birth.
It was the final humiliation for the Texan model, after her husband’s countless affairs over the course of their time together, including high profile flings with Janice Dickinson.
After that Jagger went on to have a long term relationship with the American fashion designer L’Wren Scott, whom he met in 2001. The couple lived in London, New York, France and Mustique but were believed to have had a tumultuous relationship.
In March 2014 she was found dead in her New York apartment. She was 49.
But despite their reported troubles she left her estate, believed to be worth £6million, to Jagger.
Not long after, a grief-stricken Jagger wrote on his official Facebook page: “I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves.”
It seem unlikely Jagger will embark on a serious relationship any time soon, regardless of his ever-growing brood.
But one things for sure - if anyone can be a cool dad at 73, it’s Mick Jagger.
