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.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
