Sir Mick Jagger's grandchildren have helped him through the death of his partner L'Wren Scott.

The Rolling Stones rocker has been seeking comfort in the birth of his grandson Ray and great-granddaughter Ezra following the fashion designer's suicide in March.

Jade, who gave birth to her third child Ray last month, told Hello! magazine: ''My dad loves babies. He's really good with them and is a big family man. He's been through a difficult time but it's been great to have two new babies in the family with the joy they bring.''

The 71-year-old singer became a great-grandfather for the first time in May after Jade's daughter Assisi, 21, gave birth to baby Ezra four weeks before the former model, 42, welcomed Ray into the world.

Jade explained: ''It was quite peculiar that the pregnancies happened at the same time. I can't help but have a sense of humour about it. But becoming a grandmother doesn't faze me or make me feel older.

''I don't feel like a grandmother, because the babies are so close in age it almost feels like they are brother and sister. We're lucky. It's been really great.''

Sir Mick also has daughter Karis, 43, with Marsha Hunt, Lizzie 30, James, 28, Georgia, 21, and Gabriel, 16, with model Jerry Hall, and 14-year-old son Lucas form a brief romance with TV presenter Luciana Gimenez.
