We love hearing when a husband comes to his senses and returns to the loving embrace of his wife and family. Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood was in the news lately for his fling with Ekaterina Ivanova, a 19-year old Russian cocktail waitress.

He had left his wife, Jo, in Britain and jetted off to his home in Ireland with Ivanova.

Friends said he was in the midst of a serious crisis, and his drinking had escalated to consuming two bottles of vodka a day.

Wood has been candid over the years about his struggle with alcoholism, and entered rehab in at least six times before, most recently in 2006.

He had been sober for some time, but relapsed after the end of the last Rolling Stones tour. He met Ivanova in April in an escort bar, and she immediately became a drinking buddy and nude model for him. (Wood is a serious painter.)

One thing is for sure: Ivanova wasn't telling him to reduce his vodka consumption.

Wood's publicist said on July 10: "She is a drinking partner. When you're an alcoholic and your family are all telling you to stop drinking, you simply find someone else to drink with. You can see how it happens, you end up pushing away the ones you love because you don't think straight."

What got him back to his senses? Seems like his oldest son, Jesse, 30, was able to remind him of what he would lose if he left the family nest.

Page Six reported that Jesse "flew to his side and convinced him to return home and get help."

According to the BCC, Wood entered rehab yesterday.

Wood, 61, married Jo, 53, in 1985, and have two children, Leah, 29, who got married earlier this month (Wood is pictured with Jo at the wedding), and Tyrone, 24.

Tyrone owns and runs an art gallery in London with his father and with Jesse, Wood's son from his first marriage.

Jo also has a son Jamie from a previous relationship.
