Libertine, rock legend, poster boy for hard living ... Keith Richards has been branded with many labels. Here's a new one: family man.

The Rolling Stones rocker and his model/photographer wife Patti Hansen open up about their family life in a surprisingly wholesome photoshoot for the August issue of Vogue, which features Marion Cotillard on the cover.

The extended Richards brood—including daughters Theodora and Alexandra, model daughter-in-law Lucie de la Falaise, and a slew of grandkids—gather in the Turks and Caicos for the intimate family portraits shot by Bruce Weber.

"He really loves when he can chat with the kids and introduce them to books and reading," Hansen says of patriarch Keith, who oversees family activities like sailing, roasting marshmallows around a fire pit, playing Scrabble and dominoes, and, of course, rocking out.

"We go down there and play guitar and sing songs, and it sounds straight out of a musical, but it’s awesome,” Theodora tells the magazine. “Everyone has different renditions of Everly Brothers songs, and I think that Alexandra might have sung us some AC/DC—a very interesting version of AC/DC.”

Still, it's not quite the Waltons.

"My sister is topless all the time,” says Alexandra, who favors Burberry Prorsum and Anna Sui. “She has the long hair to cover herself, but I’m like, ‘Come on, Theo, it’s just too early!’"
