Ronnie Wood’s fiancee Sally Humphreys is keen to start a family with him, but wants to wait a while so they can enjoy some quality time together first.
The 65-year-old rocker – who has four children from his two previous marriages – is set to marry Sally Humphreys, 34, in the coming months, and though the theatre producer wants to have a family, she wants to wait a few years so they can spend some quality time together first.
Sally said: “I would like children, but not yet. Ronnie is relaxed about it, but I want to have some time just as ourselves.”
Though Wood and Humphreys have known each other for several years, they only realised there could be more than friendship between them at Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell’s wedding in October 2011.
In an interview with the new issue of Grazia magazine, she said: “Ronnie and I just had a real laugh. Nothing happened between us but it was the first time I remember thinking of him in a different way.
“Something changed for both of us, but neither of us said anything.”
At the beginning of the year, Wood wrote a letter to Humphreys expressing his feelings, but she still had doubts.
She recalled: “I did have massive reservations. I knew how I felt about him, but I worried about the age difference and his fame.
“I talked to friends, and one of them said, ‘If you don’t give this a chance, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life.'”
Wood proposed in October and Humphreys wears a red heart around her neck, which the rocker made for her, and a silver ring with the word ‘Yes’ inscribed on it as an engagement ring.
