Mick Jagger has welcomed his eighth child with girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, and the new mum has shared an adorable snap of their baby boy and revealed his unusual name - Deveraux Jagger.

In the cute picture, baby Deveraux has his eyes wide open while wearing a blue baby grow, and Melanie, 30, captioned the photo: "I'm so love with my baby Deveraux Jagger. Thank you @lizzyjagger for the sweet introduction." Mick's daughter Elizabeth, 32, had shared the same photo earlier on the same day while revealing her new brother's middle names, writing: "So proud of my beautiful baby brother Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger." Eagle eyed fans have noticed that the baby may have been given the middle name 'Basil' after Mick's late father, while 'Octavian' is Latin for 'born eighth'.
