Wood’s wife Sally, a theater producer, gave birth Monday and shared the good news from her Twitter account.
“Thank you all so much for the love,” she wrote. “Can’t believe our babies are a day old already. They are wonderful.”

A statement issued from the family reads: “Ronnie & Sally Wood are delighted to announce the birth of their twins Gracie Jane (6lb) & Alice Rose (5.7lb). The girls arrived on 30 May at 22:30 and all are doing brilliantly. The babies are perfect.”
The rock legend has four children from previous relationships. The twins are his first children with Sally, who he married in 2012.
The twins’ arrival won’t be the only big news from the Stones this year. The band has announced plans to release a new album. Wood has said he and his bandmates have been in the studio and recorded some new material and some blues covers for what would be group’s first new set since 2005’s A Bigger Bang.
