Ron Wood and Wife Sally Humphreys Announce They’re Expecting Twins
Just in time for his 69th birthday, Ron Wood and his wife, theater director Sally Humphreys, expect to welcome twins to their family next June.
The Rolling Stones guitarist made the announcement via a press release issued by a band spokesperson over the weekend, saying, "Sally and Ronnie Wood are delighted to announce that they are expecting twins in June 2016. Needless to say, they are thrilled and overjoyed with the wonderful news."
The twins will be Wood and Humphreys' first children together, although Wood has four children from previous relationships. "Ronnie is so excited. They’ve had their 12-week scan and have now started telling everyone. He can’t wait to be a dad again and doesn’t think his age is a problem at all," a source tells the U.K. tabloid The Sun. "He still feels very young and fit. Ever since marrying Sally, this had always been a possibility for them. They never ruled it out."
While Wood awaits his new arrivals, the Stones seem likely to keep him busy. In November, Wood suggested that the band could head into the studio to start working on their next album — and first since 2005's A Bigger Bang — before the end of the year. Once the first round of sessions for the new LP are out of the way, the group's scheduled to go back on the road for a Latin American tour that will see them playing their first-ever shows in Peru, Uruguay and Colombia.
