Romantic day out shows Ronnie and Ekaterina still going strong

22 APRIL 2009
The spring sunshine had clearly put lovers Ronnie Wood and Ekaterina Ivanova in the mood for a kiss and a cuddle.

Lazing around in a London park with their puppy, the couple who've just returned from a beach holiday in Hawaii and a romantic getaway to LA looked as smitten as ever nine months after getting together.

Legs intertwined with those of his 20-year-old love, the Rolling Stones guitarist repeatedly leaned in to steal a buss.

Sixty-one-year-old Ronnie will soon be free to make a greater commitment to the young Russian beauty. Reports suggest a divorce from his wife of nearly three decades, Jo, will come through next month.

Another significant development in the pair's relationship is her family's acceptance of the musician, whom they've nicknamed "Ronik".

After initial misgivings over their difference in age, her grandmother Lyudmila said: "If he wants to marry Ekaterina, I would be happy for them."

"If it's real love, let them be happy together", added the matriarch, who lives in Kazakhstan.
