Ringo Starr is a great-grandfather

Ringo Starr has become a great-grandfather.

The Beatles drummer's granddaughter Tatia Starkey gave birth to son Stone Zakomo Low on Sunday (14.08.16) which is her first child with her partner Adam Low.

Tatia is the daughter of Ringo's son Zak Starkey, and both father and daughter have inherited Ringo's musical talents.

Tatia, 30, is the singer and bassist in the British band Belakiss and Zak followed in Ringo's footsteps as a drummer for The Who, Oasis and his father's own All-Starr Band.

The arrival of baby Stone means Ringo is the first Beatle to become a great-grandfather at the age of 76.

Even though he is approaching his 80th birthday, Ringo - who along with Sir Paul McCartney are the only living Beatles - has shown no sign of slowing down and he announced July that he will go back on tour with the All-Starr Band starting on 15 October at Snoqualmie Casino in Sonqualmie, Washington.

Ringo has a total of seven grandchildren from his three children 50-year-old Zak, 48-year-old Jason and 45-year-old Lee, so more great-grand-kids are a definite possibility for the legendary musician.

His kids are all from his first wife Maureen Cox who he divorced in 1975.

He went on to marry Barbara Bach in 1981 and the couple have been married ever since, and they now split their time between the UK and Los Angeles.

Ringo is an enthusiastic Twitter user, and recently surpassed 1 million followers on the social media site.

He thanked his followers by tweeting: "Peace and love to my 1 million followers wow (sic)"
