Ronnie Wood's daughter Leah Wood introduces baby son Otis

30 JUNE 2014

Leah Wood and her husband Jack MacDonald have introduced their baby son Otis Sonny David MacDonald exclusively to HELLO! – and revealed how Otis was introduced to his famous grandfather Ronnie Wood at a Rolling Stones gig in Rome last weekend.

"If people ask him what his first gig was he'll be able to say, 'The Stones at Circus Maximus' so he wins," laughed Jack.

Leah's proud mother Jo was by her side when she gave birth. "It was more emotional than I imagined," she told HELLO! magazine. "How fabulous to watch your child give birth to their child. I felt honoured that she wanted me there."

Both Jo and Jack burst into tears when Otis was born. "I saw his face, then his little body and I went, 'Jack, it's a boy,'" said Jo, doing an impression of herself crying.

Ronnie was unable to visit Leah in hospital due to his tour commitments, but, said Jack, "He was genuinely nurturing and caring," while Leah added, "He was sweet, really lovely."

Otis was a week overdue and Leah watched a Stones' rehearsal when she was 40 weeks pregnant. "Keith [Richards] said 'Sit on the bass speaker and make Darryl [Jones, the Stones' bassist] play and it'll come out. Get some wet towels and hot water ready!'" Leah told HELLO!.

Jo also joined the family in Rome – the first time she has been to a gig since before her 2009 divorce from Ronnie.

"Patti, Keith's wife, invited me because there's none of the old girl gang there anymore," she added. "She said, 'Come on, Jo, it'll be great.' It did feel weird to go to a show but you know, Ronnie and I get on great."

Otis's nursery was decorated with furniture by Gigi Brooks, a luxury nursery and children's lifestyle brand. The company was founded by Hollywood interior designer Kimberley Green, who has created bespoke furniture for a wealth of A-listers.

Leah and Jack's home also featured unique pieces of art created by Leah herself - including portraits of Keith Richards and Vivienne Westwood.
