Katie Price has branded Rolling Stones musician Ronnie Wood "selfish" for becoming a parent at the age of 69.

The mother-of-five told Loose Women that she felt it was wrong for someone of Ronnie's age to be preparing to welcome twins in the new year.

Katie, 37, said: "I think it's totally wrong and totally selfish. He's going out married to a woman the same age as his daughter.

"It's alright for her, she's my age, 37, but come on that's selfish. It's old and I'm not being funny but if he wasn't Ronnie Wood would she actually look at him? He's not a hunk to look like is he? In my opinion, I'd rather have a pillow over my face. I think it's wrong."

Panellist Ruth Langford countered that argument by saying perhaps it was "selfless" as Ronnie's wife is younger than him, wants to be a mother and he loves her, so he's giving her the gift of motherhood. She also said there are no guarantees anyone will be around to watch their children grow up as you never know what happens in life.

Ruth added: "I think my first reaction always is just, 'Oh gosh, that seems quite selfish' but then I look at [his wife], a vibrant young women, 37, how could he deny her that? The babies will be very much looked after, very much loved and he's clearly very wealthy. So many children are brought into this world without a second thought about how they will be looked after that we should be worrying about more than these two babies."

Ronnie and his wife Sally announced their baby news via a rep yesterday, saying: "Needless to say, they are thrilled and overjoyed with the wonderful news."

The babies arrive in June 2016.

Ronnie's first child, Jesse, was born in 1976. Jesse is now married to Fearne Cotton, who is the mother of his kids Rex and Honey.
