Ronnie Wood's wife Sally Wood is speaking out over criticism that she and the Rolling Stones' guitarist Ronnie Wood are "selfish" for having kids.
On Dec. 7 2015, Sally and the 68-year-old music man announced that they were announcing twins. While birth announcements are usually a time of joy, the couple has been met with much criticism due to the rocker's age.
Sally, who is 38, spoke out to the Daily Telegraph insisting that it would have been selfish of them not to have kids.
The expectant mother said, "What I do know is that these girls are already so absolutely adored. They are so incredibly wanted." She continued, "When I take that into account, maybe it would be selfish of us not to have children. They will be loved, and I think that is all that matters."
But of course, Sally, who is 30 years Ronnie's junior, said that she thinks about their age difference, explaining, "Do I think about Ronnie's age? Of course I do. His Auntie Mary lived to be over 100 years old. There are good genes in his family. But I'm not blind to the whole thing."
Sally, who married the former wild man on Dec. 21 2012, also got candid about dealing with the negative comments about their relationship, as well as people commenting on her looks.
The interview comes on the heels of Ronnie's announcement on Twitter that his wife was pregnant with twin girls. Ronnie, who was defending his wife's decision to leave the Rolling Stones tour in South America, tweeted, "My wife Sally Wood has not been 'sent home' from @therollingstones' tour. Our twins come first and we decided the Zika virus & excessive flying was too dangerous for them. Our baby GIRLS are growing beautifully ~ thank you for the love!"
Ronnie has four children from previous relationships -- plus 10 grandchildren -- and Sally insists that the impending birth of the twins is helping the guitarist spend even more time with his other children.
