I wait! Mick Jagger’s partner of nine years Melanie Hamrick hints she wants him to pop the question saying she ‘wouldn’t say no’ if he asked her to marry him
Sir Mick Jagger may be facing an awkward conversation with his partner after she drops a not-so-subtle hint about becoming attached to the famous lothario.
The Rolling Stone and his partner of nine years, ballerina Melanie Hamrick, have a six-year-old son, Deveraux, and live a “full nomadic” lifestyle moving between different homes around the world.
Despite having a child together – one of 79-year-old Jagger’s eight children with five mothers – the couple have never publicly discussed the status of their relationship.
Now, in an interview, Ms Hamrick, 36, said: ‘I know there’s been a lot of ‘Are they engaged or aren’t they engaged? I’m not embarrassed. I am neither here nor there. But if he proposed, she said, “I wouldn’t say no.”
Instead of an engagement ring, the ex-ballerina wears an “engagement ring” encrusted with diamonds and sapphires.

Jagger had his first child in 1970 with actress Marsha Hunt, now 77
Ms Hamrick first met Jagger, then 71, in Tokyo in February 2014 while on tour with his ballet company – she was engaged at the time and Jagger had a long-term relationship with the designer American fashion designer L’Wren Scott.
Ms. Scott killed herself less than a month later, apparently over debt and business difficulties.
Ms Hamrick and Jagger were pictured together a few months later.
She told The Times: “One of the greatest things we have in common is discipline and dedication – his passion for his art and his craft and mine for mine.”
After two years of transatlantic dating, Ms Hamrick discovered she was pregnant and struggled to balance her career as a ballerina with motherhood.
Ms Hamrick and Deveraux have been welcomed into the Jagger family, including her seven other children – the eldest of whom, Karis, is 52 – as well as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Miss Hamrick said: “You’re bent in this world, you adapt, you get used to it and it’s wonderful.” The extended family is said to be so close that they all spend Christmas together at Jagger’s home on the Caribbean island of Mustique and share a WhatsApp family group.
The clan is also said to have planned a “massive explosion” to celebrate the singer’s 80th birthday on July 26.
Of her jet-setting lifestyle, Ms Hamrick said: ‘I enjoy this schedule. I don’t want to be tied down. London is my favorite city, so I hope that someday in the future we will eventually settle here, but until then I will carry on.
He then married Bianca Perez-Mora Macias – the only one of his girlfriends he officially married – and had his second child, Jade Jagger.

Then the rocker began a 20-year relationship with supermodel Jerry Hall, with whom he had four children.
The couple had a Hindu wedding ceremony in Bali in 1990, but nine years later when they separated were found to be legally invalid in the UK.
Their relationship ended when Ms Hall discovered Jagger had fathered her seventh child with model Luciana Gimenez.
