Rolling Stone's Ronnie Wood becomes dad to twins -- at 68

Story highlights

  • Ronnie Wood turns 69 on Wednesday
  • He's far from the only celeb to have kids in their 60s

(CNN)Papa was a Rolling Stone.

Rolling Stone guitarist Ron Wood welcomed kid no. 5 and 6 into the world when his wife, Sally, gave birth to twins Monday.
    That's a pretty neat early birthday gift for a man who turns 69 later this week. Yes, 69.
    But Wood isn't alone in the "no, that's not my grandchild, that's my child" club.
    Other celebs who've had kids well into their 60s -- and beyond -- include Wood's old friend Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney, media mogul Rupert Murdoch and actor Robert De Niro.
    In Wood's case, the mother of the twins -- third wife, Sally Humphreys -- is younger than his oldest child.
    The twin girls, named Gracie Jane and Alice Rose, "are perfect," Stones' publicist Bernard Doherty said.
    On Sunday, the day before the girls were born, Wood tweeted a pic of him with a dog "waiting" for their arrival.
