Meanwhile, in terms of her professional life, Karis used to be an actress before transitioning into a volunteer position. Also, learn about her long-term marriage to her husband, Jonathan M. Watson. 

Do the couple have any children? Let's find out everything we can about her! 

Karis Jagger personal life

Karis Hunt Jagger was born on November 4, 1970, in New York City. She was born in the city of London, England, in the United Kingdom. Her birth date reveals that she was born under the sign of Scorpio. 

Karis is a Greek name that means "Graceful" or "Phonetic." 

The name Hunt comes from the Anglo-Saxons. The word hunt is derived from hunta, an Old English word that means "hunter."

Karis Jagger was no exception to the rule that some of us grow up to become the people we dreamed of becoming as children. She was interested in acting and traveling as a child. 

Karis grew up in a celebrity middle-class household. Her father, Mick Jagger, is a well-known singer and actor who was a founding member of the Rolling Stones, and her mother, Marsha Hunt, is a well-known American actress, singer, novelist, and former model. 

Jagger is the half-brother of seven children: Jade, Elizabeth, James, Georgia, Gabriel, Lucas Maurice Morad, and Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger. 

The latest one was born on December 8, 2016, two years after Mick's great-grandchild was born on May 19, 2014, from Jade's daughter Assisi.

She was a dedicated and gifted student in school. She received her diploma from Bedales School, a British boarding school in the United Kingdom. In 1992, she earned a bachelor's degree in modern history from Yale. 

Karis Hunt Jagger is currently 50 years old. 

Karis Jagger is a stunning tall lady. She has a height of 5 feet and 10 inches. Her current weight, however, is unknown. 

Her dark eyes are stunning, and her hair is long and black. Unfortunately, her additional physical measurements remain unknown.

Mick and Marsha

If you've ever heard the Rolling Stones' controversial hit song, Brown Sugar, you'll know that it was inspired by Karis' mother, Marsha Hunt. She has written three novels as well as three autobiographies, one of which includes an honest account of her life as a breast cancer patient. 

Karis' parents, Mick and Marsha, met when she was invited to appear for a Rolling Stones advertisement for their song "Honky Tonk Woman." Despite her refusal to appear in the advertisement for personal reasons, it was via it that she met Mick Jagger and their ten-month affair started.

Because of the stark contrasts in their social circles, their relationship was more or less private. Karis was born in November 1970, the first and only child of her mother Marsha Hunt. 

Mick and Marsha intended to have Karis, but they had no intention of living together as a couple. 

According to Tony Sanchez, Mick Jagger once contemplated proposing to Marsha, but he didn't because he didn't think his love for Marsha at the moment was strong enough for him to want to spend the rest of his life with her. 

He was not alone in his decision, as Marsha stated that she did not believe the two of them were compatible enough to be in a long-term relationship. 

In 1973, when Karis was two years old, her mother, Marsha Hunt, went to the courts in New York and requested an affiliation order against Mick Jagger. However, the matter was finally resolved out of court. 

Despite his dismissal of the claim, Mick Jagger consented to establish a trust fund for his daughter Karis. He was supposed to pay $17 a week for Karis's support until he turned 21. 

Mick Jagger, on the other hand, was permitted to publicly dispute the fatherhood of the kid, which he did. Marsha Hunt filed a paternity suit in Los Angeles in 1978, asking Mick Jagger to pay $580 per week for Karis' maintenance and for him to officially claim her. 

Marsha was successful in her paternity claim in 1979. She stated after winning that she simply wanted to be able to provide for her daughter Karis when she reached the age of 21 and that she would not allow Mick to disregard his obligations as her father. 

Karis and her father, Mick Jagger, grew close throughout the years. He accompanied her on a family vacation while she was in her early adolescence, and he also attended her Yale University graduation and wedding in 2000. In 2004, he was also present when she gave birth to her son.

Karis was also present for her father when his lover, L'Wren Scot, was discovered dead, hung on March 17, 2014.

Her family was also highly involved in her funeral. In the burial ceremony, she recited a poem, and her children, Zak and Mazie, read psalms.

From her father's side, Karis Jagger has seven half-siblings: Jade Sheena Jezebel Jagger, a jewelry designer, Elizabeth 'Lizzy' Scarlett Jagger, a model and actress, James Leroy Augustin Jagger, a musician and actor, Georgia May Ayeesha Jagger, a model, Gabriel Luke Beauregard Jagger, also a model, and Lucas Maurice Morad Jagger, a student.
