Sir Paul's Having a Baby

Wife Heather expecting later this year

May 28, 2003 12:00 AM ET

Paul McCartney and wife Heather are expecting their first child later this year. "We are delighted with this happy news," the couple said in a statement.

The sixty-year-old former Beatle and the thirty-four-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. The baby will be Heather's first, while 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.

Paul will have plenty of time to spend at home with the new child. On Sunday, he will wrap up a world tour that had him traversing the globe for more than a year in support of his last album, 2001's Driving Rain.

“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."
