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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
