Moves Like Jagger

When your Dad is world famous rock star Mick Jagger, you’ve already had a great start in life. It’s therefore perhaps surprising that the Jagger offspring have all taken very different paths in life, and none have followed Dad into the music business. Mick has seven children, ranging in age from 42 to 14, with four different mothers, Marsha Hunt, Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall and Luciana Morad.

Karis Jagger Hunt

Karis is Mick’s oldest child, and she was born in 1970 after her model mother, Marsha Hunt, had a relationship with the Rolling Stones star. Mick was not heavily involved during Karis’s childhood, but as she grew up they went on holiday together and started to build a relationship. Karis has never been interested in stardom. She did a degree in History and has worked as a teacher and a film production assistant in the USA.

Jade Jagger

After his relationship with Marsha ended, Mick married Bianca Macias, a Nicaraguan jet setter and political activist. Their only child, Jade, was born in 1971. Jade spent her childhood in London and New York, and lived with her mother after her parents divorced in 1978. She is heavily involved in the fashion industry and designs her own jewellery range. Her two daughters, Assisi and Amba are following in their mother’s footsteps and are often seen at fashion shows by Hugo Boss and other major fashion designers both in Europe and America.

Lizzie and Georgia Jagger

Mick’s two daughters from his marriage to supermodel Jerry Hall are Lizzie and Georgia, both of whom have enjoyed successful modelling careers in their own rights. Lizzie has modelled for Lancome and Victoria’s Secret, but the more successful sister is Georgia, who has inherited her mother’s blonde, supermodel looks and her father’s distinctive lips. She is the face of Rimmel London in print and television adverts, and has modelled on the catwalk and in magazines for high profile designers such as Louis Vuitton and Versace. She is still just 21, and has many long years ahead of her as a model. Lizzie and Georgia have a good relationship with Jade and her daughters, and they were all pictured together at the Hugo Boss watches and fashion show in London.

James and Gabriel Jagger

Mick’s two sons with Jerry Hall are far less famous than their sisters. Gabriel is 15 and still at school, so it remains to be seen if he is a star of the future. James is in a punk group called Turbogeist which has yet to set the charts on fire, and is said to be interested in getting into acting and films in the future. James has stated in the past that his surname is not an advantage when getting ahead in the film and music world.

Lucas Morad

Mick Jagger’s affair with Lucas’ mother was the final nail in the coffin for his marriage to Jerry Hall, but this hasn’t stopped Mick from spending time with his son, who lives in Brazil and London. Lucas has a striking resemblance to his father, and is another one to watch for the future.
