Artists really do attract other artists! According to a report in The Mirror, Hamrick started ballet at age of three and pursued dancing full-time when she turned 11 years old. At 17, she moved to American and trained at the American Ballet Theatre. Jagger was 61 years old at this time.

She became a part of many ballets in small roles, including Frederick Ashton's Cinderella, The Nutcracker, Romeo and Juliet, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and many more. She was named one of the Top 10 US dancers and was previously engaged to Cuban classica dancer José Manuel Carreño. The relationship ended in 2014. 

2. The couple has been together for two years.

The Mirror reports that the couple supposedly got together in 2014, sometime after performing in her 11th season of Swan Lake at the Metropolitan Opera. According to The Telegraph, this occured after Jagger's then long-time partner, fashion designer L'Wren Scott, committed suicide

The Sun reported on their secret relationship back then, revealing that Hamrick had reached out to Jagger after a Rolling Stones concert. The ballerina's friends also said that she was able to "put a smile back on his face after months of mourning."

3. She's younger than most of Jagger's children.

Kari, Mick's oldest daughter with American singer Marsha Hunt, is 45 years old. His second daughter, Jade, with ex-wife Bianca Jagger, is 44 years old. With former model and actress Jerry Hall, he has 32-year-old Elizabeth, 30-year-old James, 24-year-old Georgia, and 18-year-old Gabriel. His youngest with Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez is 17-year-old Lucas. 

4. They have a long-distance relationship.

In an interview with The Sun, a close friend of Jagger's says that the rock star would most likely not live in the same home with Hamrick for now. 

"Mick's relationship with Melanie works for both of them," said the source. "Melanie is very American and doesn't want to move to London, even though they've been seeing each other regularly over a long period of time now."

The source also said that Jagger prefers it because he isn't ready for a new formal relationship. Meanwhile, Hamrick might move to Los Angeles or Connecticut to be closer to family.

5. Both are excited for the new baby.

The source also says that the two are "surprised and happy" at the new addition, and describes Jagger as being "incredibly supportive." Likewise, Hamrick is reportedly confident in Jagger's abilities as a father, as she has seen his relationship with his other children.

The source also told The Sun that Hamrick had been planning on retiring from ballet. The unexpected pregnancy just sped up the process. However, she's reportedly ecstatic to become a mother and is taking extra precautions to do so. 

Congratulations to the new mom and eight-time dad!
