Ronnie Wood, 69, couldn’t be happier now that he’s become a father to 9-month-old twin daughters, whom he shares with 39-year-old wife Sally Wood.
“Any time I’m with her and the girls, that’s the best for me, nothing tops it,” said The Rolling Stones rocker to HELLO! Magazine. “When the twins come into our bed and we’re all snuggled up together, that, for me, is wonderful — my idea of heaven. It’s special. The girls are so cuddly and gorgeous. I’m a lucky man.”

Wood also told the celebrity news publication that the females in his life make parenting a breeze.
“Sally’s a natural mum, she’s amazing,” he said. Sally added their daughters, Gracie and Alice, are always thrilled to see their famous father.
“When they see Ronnie, they get so excited. You can see it on their faces, ‘Yay, it’s you!’” she said.

The musician’s new life as a parent is surprisingly simple, in comparison to his reckless rock star years. Wood explained he’s been sober for seven years and the birth of his daughters prompted him to give up smoking, as well as embrace living in the English countryside.
“It’s like being in the Archers, living here,” said his wife. “They have cricket on the green and village fairs and we go to all of it. We love it.”
