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
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.
