This is a remarkable shift in pace for a man, who has reportedly slept with more than 4,000 wives.

Last Sunday, after the second of two sell-out concerts in Los Angeles, lothario Mick Jagger returned to his £8,500-a-night ‘family suite’ at the Maybourne hotel in Beverly Hills and enjoyed a meal with girlfriend Melanie Hamrick (cooked by his private chef) while their four-year-old son Deveraux slept in an adjoining room.

There were no drugs, rock ’n’ roll or partying for the once-notorious womaniser who famously implored ‘Let’s Spend the Night Together’ and whose hits include Paint It Black, Sympathy For The Devil and Under My Thumb.

Indeed, if there was any partying, it was taking place at the five-star Four Seasons hotel across town, where bandmates Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood were holed up with members of The Rolling Stones’ entourage and crew.

According to sources, a newly reformed Jagger, 78, preferred to stay at a separate hotel with his family, spending his days sightseeing, hiking local trails and enjoying intimate meals à deux with former ballerina Melanie, 34, either in their suite or at their favourite Japanese restaurant, Matsuhisa.

‘Mick’s totally changed,’ said one. ‘He’s always had a serious girlfriend but when he’s been on the road touring there have always been other girls, lots of them.

‘This time it’s different. Melanie, Dev and the nanny are on tour with him so it’s all about early nights and hanging with his family. And he’s happier than I’ve ever seen him.’

The band spent ten days with the LA Philharmonic before they left on Friday to head to Minneapolis for their No Filter Tour. ‘Mick didn’t hang out with the band or crew at all except when they were working,’ the source said. 

‘Covid regulations meant that everyone had to stay in their own bubbles and get tested daily by a team of medics who travel with them. Mick decided to stay in the bubble of his family.

‘Even at the concert venue he hung out in his dressing room with Melanie and Dev. He performed and then it’s straight back to his hotel.

‘He and Melanie are fitness fanatics. They’ve got their own private chef so it’s egg-whites for breakfast and steamed fish or grilled chicken for dinner.

‘One of the rooms in their suite was set up as a gym.

‘He’s a reformed character. Mick hasn’t done drugs in years and barely drinks, but Melanie is a professional dancer so she has him working out with a personal trainer every day to keep his energy levels up, and they eat clean.’

The Mail on Sunday has learned that the pandemic marked a major turning point in the relationship between Jagger and Melanie, who first met in 2014 shortly after the death of his then long-time girlfriend, designer L’Wren Scott, 49.

Despite the birth of Deveraux in 2016 – Jagger’s eighth child by five different women – he continued to avoid commitment and was linked with stunning film producer Noor Alfallah, who, sources say, he would ‘regularly hook up with both in LA and elsewhere’.

The source said: ‘The pandemic changed Mick’s outlook on life, as it did for a lot of people. He and Melanie spent a lot time together, mainly at his chateau in France. He really enjoyed being a father to Deveraux. He speaks openly about how Covid forced him to think about the important things in life. And he’s chosen Melanie and his kid.’ 

Jagger has also been given pause by the August death of Charlie Watts, 80-year-old drummer,

‘The Stones have opened every concert with a tribute to Charlie and Mick has been talking about him a lot,’ said the source. 

‘You can’t be friends and bandmates with someone for that long without it affecting you.

‘Mick totally appreciates the smaller things in life now. Sure, he’s still got the private jets and all the trappings of wealth, but this week in LA he was happy to take some down time and go sightseeing with Melanie. 

They drove around and did what “normal” people do. They went hiking and swam in the hotel pool.’

A beaming Jagger posted pictures of his ‘tame’ new life on Instagram under the heading ‘Mattresses, murals and more around LA’.

The ‘mattresses’ reference was to a bedding store which sits below a mural of Jagger in his 1960s heyday on La Cienega Boulevard. 

He also went to model daughter Georgia May’s favourite hair salon, BleachLA, and posed in front of mannequins in the window of a famous Hollywood lingerie shop called Trashy Lingerie.

‘He went full-on tourist and loved it,’ the source added. His older children are said to adore Melanie, unlike some of Jagger’s other paramours over the years.

Karis, Karis’ 51-year-old daughter, lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two kids. She met the couple last week.

‘His kids love Melanie. She’s funny and feisty and they know she looks after their dad and makes him happy.

‘No one ever thought this day would come but Melanie has definitely tamed him. She’s a good influence on him,’ the source added.

Jagger was married to Bianca (mother of Jade), and then to Jerry Hall (Texan model), with whom he had 4 children. 

Hall left him after 23 year when Hall learned about his involvement with Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez Morad. Jagger tried to claim that their Bali wedding wasn’t valid later.

Jagger’s list of lovers includes Brigitte Bardot, Kate Moss, Tina Turner, Uma Thurman, Madonna and Carly Simon. 

Chris Anderson, a biographer, claimed that the frontman had sex more than 4,000 times with women, including Angelina Jolie.

Jagger says that these conquests are now long past their time.

‘I’ve never seen him happier than he is when Melanie is around,’ the source continued. 

‘She’s gorgeous to look at but she also gets him. They’re always laughing. You never hear them talk of marriage but they are like a married couple already.’

The couple has not spoken much about their relationship.

American Melanie, who has retired from dancing but now works as a choreographer/producer, has filled her social media pages with adorable photos of Deveraux.

She has a New York apartment and Jagger just bought her a home near Sarasota in Florida.

In a rare public comment, she said: ‘It’s important for me and my son… to stay together as a family, especially with the uncertain times.’

Will she become the third – and perhaps last – Mrs Jagger?

Only time will tell if Mick finally finds his Satisfaction.
