Ronnie Wood enjoying 'brilliant' marriage
Thursday 28 February 2013
Rolling Stones legend Ronnie Wood is still in the honeymoon period with new wife Sally Humphreys as he described married life as "absolutely brilliant" and the doting grandfather is thrilled with his "perfect" new grandson.
The rocker was at the NME awards in east London representing his band who are up for four awards - Best live band, Best book, Music moment of the year and Best music film.
He tied the knot with Humphreys in December last year, and as the couple took to the red carpet before the show they gushed about each other and the newest member of the family - Jesse Wood and presenter Fearne Cotton's baby Rex who was born last week.
The star was happy to talk about his wife and grandson, saying: "Oh it's great. Married life is absolutely brilliant. Sally's great and my new little grandchild Rex is a great little lad as well."
His wife was equally enthusiastic about her new marital status and said it is just as she thought it would be.
"It's a whirlwind. It's fun. Ronnie's lovely. It's an experience. It's everything you would expect," she said.
Speaking about baby Rex, Humphreys said: "We saw him on the day he was born and he was just perfect."
Wood's spouse said she had her "fingers crossed" tonight, but the star was confident about his band's chances.
He said: "It's about time we're up for four awards. It's just like starting all over again for us.
"I think the band is greater live now than ever."
He added: "It'd be a shame to be overlooked, because I think we're the best live band."
Wood said he hoped tonight's ceremony would be more exciting than the Brits, which he was unimpressed with.
"They weren't great were they? I came to this because it's funky and you really get to the roots," he said.
Humphreys believes her husband has plans to continue in the music business for a very long time.
"I think Ronnie would probably say he has another 20 or 30 years. I don't think they think it will end.
"They're musicians. They'll just keep playing and playing and playing," she said.
