The musician also said that he had some keen babysitters on hand in the form of his Rolling Stones bandmates, including Mick Jagger.
"The Rolling Stones are all thrilled. Keith loves kids, so he's excited, and Mick keeps telling me to give him a year and then he'll be our nanny," Ronnie told HELLO!. "So now we're calling him Nanny Mick."
And he said he expects the babies will soon join the Rolling Stones on tour. "Everyone is thrilled for me. The Stones are one big family. It's all about the kids. In this tour everyone's been there: [Mick's children] Jade, Karis, James, Lizzy, Gabriel, Lucas and Georgia May; Patti and Keith's girls [Theodora and Alexandra] and Charlie's granddaughter Charlotte.
"My girls will be two more added into the mix. I hope my girls will becoming on tour with me for years to come."
