Ronnie Wood's girl Leah making 'fresh start' in Oz

Tuesday March 9, 2010

After seeing her parents divorce, Leah Wood - daughter of Rolling stone Ronnie and his ex wife Jo - felt she needed a "fresh start".

So the 31-year-old model decided the time was right to move to her Australian husband's homeland with their nine-month-old daughter Maggie.

"By the end of last year I was like, 'I have to get out'," says Leah who arrived in Sydney at the end of January with her TV producer love Jack MacDonald.

"I want a new life. A fresh start. Let's just go to Australia."

Leah says that she "loves the lifestyle and pureness of this city" and insists she isn't missing anyone.

"I know that sounds horrible but I'm just enjoying being away," she told an Australian newspaper.

Leah is keeping in touch with her father – whose marriage ended after he started a relationship with cocktail waitress Ekaterina Ivanova – and has taught him to use the internet telephone system Skype.
