Ronnie Wood nicknames twins

Ronnie Wood has nicknamed his unborn twins 'The Ronettes'.

The 68-year-old rocker and his wife Sally Humphreys haven't yet decided on names for their baby girls, though they will be making "very traditional" choices, so for the time being he has given them an affectionate moniker in honour of the 1960s 'Be My Baby' girl group.

A source said: "Ronnie has been saying the girls will be called The Ronettes. It's really caught on amongst all their family and friends. But the names on their birth certificates will be very traditional.

"They haven't decided on what they will be yet but it could even be a family name."

Sally, 37, is due to give birth to the twins in June and has been taking advice from 34-year-old presenter Ferne Cotton, who has kids Rex, three, and Honey, five months, with her husband, Ronnie's son Jesse, 39.

The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Sally has also been speaking to Fearne a lot. They are a similar age and get on really well. Fearne's a new mum and is helping Sally prepare for her new arrivals."

As well as Jesse - who also has Arthur, 14 and Lola, 10, from a previous marriage - the Rolling Stones guitarist also has three other grown-up kids from past relationships.
