Ronnie Wood names twins

Ronnie and Sally Wood have named their twin daughters Gracie Jane and Alice Rose.

The Rolling Stones guitarist and his 38-year-old spouse welcomed their "perfect" little girls into the world on Monday evening (30.05.16) and the whole family are doing "brilliantly".

A statement confirming the happy news read: "Ronnie & Sally Wood are delighted to announce the birth of their twins Gracie Jane (6 lbs.) & Alice Rose (5.7 lbs.), The girls arrived on 30 May at 22:30 and all are doing brilliantly. The babies are perfect."

Last night (31.05.16) Sally also took to Twitter to share the "wonderful" news to her followers

Thank you all so much for the [hearts] ~ can't believe our babies are a day old already. They are wonderful xx,(sic)"

If the babies hadn't arrived by later in the week, the brunette beauty - who is three decades younger than her husband - was reportedly planning to have her labour induced.

Meanwhile, the 'Gimme Shelter' rocker, 68, already has grown up children Jesse, 39, with his late ex-wife Krissy Findlay and Leah, 37, Tyrone, 32, with his former spouse Jo Wood and her son Jamie, 41, who he adopted.

He previously revealed he is keen for his Rolling Stones bandmate Sir Mick Jagger to "sing lullabies" to his daughters.

He told BANG Showbiz: "Mick told me he's a good nanny after one year so he can come and sing lullabies to them ...

"It's going to be great fun in June, I'm expecting two baby girls, Sally and I are really excited and I can't wait to be rocking them to sleep and changing their nappies and going through it all again."

The 68-year-old musician's four other kids are as excited about the babies, with Tyrone adding: "I can't wait to meet my little sisters, I'm ecstatic about it. I've already got them Jellycat rabbits, they're little soft lovely rabbits for babies."

And Ronnie previously claimed it was his friend Rod Stewart - who is a father of eight - who inspired him to have more children at his age.

He said: "Yes, the person who incited this riot is Rod. As soon as I met Sally, he was on at me to propose. Then, as soon as we got married, he started telling us we had to have babies. He and Penny [Lancaster; Rod's wife] have been complete mother hens since we first told them."
