Sir Paul welcomes Beatrice to the family

Published Sep. 2, 2005

Paul McCartney's wife Heather Mills has given birth to a girl. Beatrice Milly McCartney, the couple's first child, was born Tuesday at a London hospital and weighed 7 pounds, her parents said in a statement.

"She is a little beauty. We couldn't be prouder," the 61-year-old former Beatle McCartney and Mills, 35, said, adding they were "ecstatic."

A spokeswoman for the Hospital of St. John and St. Elizabeth in London said Beatrice was born three weeks premature and delivered by Caesarean section.

Spokeswoman Claire Hornick said mom was doing "very well.'

The baby is Mills' first child. McCartney has three adult children _ Stella, Mary and James _ and a stepdaughter, Heather, from his marriage to first wife Linda McCartney, who died in 1998 from breast cancer.

The baby was named after Mills' late mother Beatrice and McCartney's aunt Milly, Hornick said.
