Sir Paul McCartney of Beatles fame has one more reason to be excited.  His daughter Mary McCartney, 38, and her boyfriend, filmmaker Simon Aboud, 43, are expecting their first child together at the end of July.  A source reveals,

They don’t know whether it’s a boy or a girl and they don’t want to.  Everyone is delighted and they are very happy.

This will be the third child for Mary.  She has two sons — Arthur, 8, and Elliot, 5 — from her marriage to director Alistair Donald.

She looks a lot like Stella. But why don’t they ever smile?

Oh, I had thought Ricki Lake lost weight!

Because they just aren’t smiley people?

Congrats to Mary and Simon, I love the McCartney clan.

I also just noticed Mary’s ex-husband’s first name is the same as Stella’s hubby! That’s kind of funny.

Both husbands have close , but not similar spellings. Mary’s ex is Alastair and Stella hubby is Alasdhair. Both might pronounce their name the same though.

I think Mary smiles a lot more then Stella. This is just only one where she’s not smiling but if you look on Getty or search pics of her you’ll find lots where she’s smiling.

But anyway congrats to the Mac Clan! Grandbaby #6 is on the way for grandpa Paul!

I think Mary has Paul’s dark hair but looks a lot like Linda in her face shape and figure. Stella has her mom’s coloring but seems to have her dad’s face shape and eyes. They both seem like nice girls. I really like that family and, wow, he’s got a number of grandkids there!

Are all the children biologically Paul’s? Cause I thought maybe Linda had one before they were together?

How is Alasdhair pronounced? Is it the same as Alastair?

Sarah’s note: Heather is Linda’s daughter from a previous relationship, whom Paul adopted. Yes, it is pronounced the same.

Jeannette on

Paul has four children biologically- Mary, Stella, James (with Linda), and Beatrice (with Heather Mills). However he has always considered Heather (from Linda’s previous marriage) as his daughter and as Sarah pointed out, adopting her. So all in all, Paul is the father of five children!

Daze on

Is this Sir Paul’s sixth grandchild or does James and Heather have any children yet?

Kelly on

All of Paul’s grandchildren are coming from Mary and Stella only at the moment. James and Heather don’t have any children. Heather’s already 45 so I really don’t see her having any children but you never know. I feel James should get on the ball and father some children.

I am so happy for the whole family but I wish they would get married before the baby gets here. Mary and Stella are both beautiful women. It would be nice if James were to marry and have children to carry on the McCartney name. They all seem to have Paul’s eyes.

I am so happy for them but wish they’d get married before the baby is born.
