Sir Paul McCartney's eldest daughter MARY has become the first of his children with late wife LINDA to publicly congratulate his new wife HEATHER MILLS on her pregnancy.

The 34-year old photographer told reporters she was "really pleased" that her 61-year old dad was to become a father again next month (NOV03). Insiders have told the press the happy couple are expecting a baby boy.

Ever since McCartney started romancing his 35-year-old wife there have been consistent reports that his children were unhappy with the match - especially fashion designer daughter STELLA.

But Mary says, "I'm really pleased about it. It's great news and I'm looking forward to seeing the baby."
