Paul, who’s known as the Modfather, went on to have a 24-year-old daughter, Dylan, from a fleeting romance with a make-up artist.
He welcomed two more children Jesamine, 20, and Stevie Mac, 16, during his 13-year relationship to Samantha Stock.
The partnership ended when he met Hannah in 2008, when she was 23, and she quickly moved into his Maida Vale home.
The couple went on to welcome twin boys Bowie and John Paul, now nine, named after David Bowie and The Beatles legends John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney.
In 2017 Paul welcomed his eighth child at the age of 59, a baby girl named Nova.
The child is named after one of the tracks that appears on his 13th album, A Kind Revolution.
Paul, who found fame in post punk band The Jam, joins rock peers Sir Mick Jagger and Sir Rod Stewart by having a total of eight children in his brood.
Talking to The Mirror in 2012, he opened up about being a father, as well as his decision to have children in his fifties.
‘You get certain people who go “Ooh, seven children with four women” and all that,’ he said. ‘But I don’t care, man. I love all my kids. They’re all special and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
‘I don’t mean that in a morbid way but, because of the age difference between me and my wife, I really want to leave part of me with her, so there’s that as well.’
