Paul McCartney and his wife Heather had a baby girl, Beatrice Milly, on Tuesday.

The child, McCartney's fourth and Mills' first, was born three weeks early, but according to a statement, "Both she and mum are doing well. She is a little beauty and we couldn't be prouder."

The sixty-one-year-old former Beatle and the thirty-five-year-old ex-model (formerly Heather Mills) were married last June at a castle in Ireland, the second marriage for both. They met four years ago at an anti-landmine charity event. McCartney has three children -- Stella, James and Mary -- from his first wife, Linda McCartney, who died of breast cancer in 1998. He also has a stepdaughter from that marriage.

The new parents should have will have plenty of time to spend at home with the new child. Earlier this year, McCartney wrapped a world tour that ran more than a year.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
