Jagger and Hall Have Baby Boy

December 10, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Mick Jagger reached another milestone early Tuesday -- the 54-year-old rocker once again became a father.

Jerry Hall, Jagger's wife, gave birth to Gabriel Luke Beauregard Jagger at 12:30 a.m. in London on Dec. 9. The boy weighed in at eight pounds, three ounces.

Jagger, who is currently on tour in America with the Rolling Stones, isn't expected to see his new son until the band wraps up this leg of the "Bridges to Babylon" tour on Friday in St. Louis.

Gabriel is the sixth child for Jagger, his fourth with Hall. Jagger has two other daughters: one with ex-wife Bianca Jagger, the other with singer/actress Marsha Hunt

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
