Congratulations are in order for Mick Jagger!

The Rolling Stones front man, 72, is expecting his eighth child with girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, 29, a spokesman for the rocker confirmed. Jagger already has seven other kids, whose ages range from 17-45. He also became a great-grandfather last year when his granddaughter, Assisi Jackson, gave birth to a baby girl.

Although Jagger's family addition might come as a surprise given his age, it's hardly the first time a male celebrity has become a dad later in life. Steve Martin became a first-time dad in 2013 when he was 67 years old. He and his wife, Anne Stringfield, kept the birth very secret, and even to this day don't share too many details about their child.

Rod Stewart continued to grow his family tree when he welcomed a baby boy, Alastair Stewart, at 60 with now-wife Penny Lancaster. The couple then had another child, Aiden Patrick Stewart, several years later when the crooner was 66. In total, Stewart, now 71, has eight children.

Sir Paul McCartney became a dad again at the age of 61 when then-wife Heather Mills gave birth to daughter Beatrice. He also has four other children with ex-wife Linda McCartney, who passed away in 1998. Now married to Nancy Shevell, the couple has not had any children together, but The Beatles alum has eight grandchildren.

Alec Baldwin is going to become a dad to his fourth child pretty soon, as his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, is pregnant with their third (he already had daughter Ireland Baldwin with Kim Basinger). The 30 Rock alum, who is 58, also shares son Rafael Baldwin and daughter Carmen Baldwin with the 32-year-old fitness and wellness expert.

Larry King has a total of five kids, two of who were born when he was 66 and 67. He and wife Shawn King welcomed sons Chance and Cannon into the family. The "King of Late Night" also was a father to Chaia King, Larry King Jr. and Andy King.

Robert De Niro was dubbed a new dad once again when he welcomed a daughter into the family fold at 68 via surrogate. Helen Grace was the sixth child for the Oscar winner, who also has two children with ex-wife Diahnne Abbott and 16-year-old twin sons with ex-girlfriend Toukie Smith. He also has one grandchild, Nicholas De Niro.
