London, Feb 22 (IANS) Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood’s pregnant wife Sally Humphreys has returned home here from the band’s tour in Brazil due to fears she could contract the Zika virus.
“My wife @sallywood has not been ‘sent home’ from the @rollingstones tour! Our twins come first and we decided the Zika virus and excessive flying was too dangerous for them,” Wood tweeted.
The guitarist also posted a naked photograph of his pregnant 38-year-old wife and an image of a drawing he did of his significant other with their twins along with the words “my little stars” written on the artwork.
He added the caption: “Our baby girls are growing beautifully thank you for the love! (my drawing)”
The band has been staying in Rio de Janeiro for their “América Latina Olé Tour”, and performed in the Brazilian city last week.
The rockers have three further gigs in Brazil before moving onto Peru, Colombia and finally Mexico, where the 13-date tour will come to an end on March 17.
Wood and Humphreys’ twins will be their first children together. He has four kids from previous relationships.
