Sir Paul McCartney admits his four children took time to get used to new wife HEATHER MILLS - but says they are all close now.

The Beatles legend's adult offspring HEATHER, MARY, STELLA and James were reported to be unsure about their widowed father's new young wife, but Sir Paul is adamant this is not the case.

He says, "It was tough at first but it's got a lot easier. After a year of intense grieving I thought I'm not going to do this forever. I told the kids that I thought it was on the cards that I'd find another woman. They said that was fine. But when I met one it was different. They were shocked and had to take time to come around.

"But it's not as bad as it seems. Basically, the kids get on well with Heather and some nice things are happening recently, such as Heather wearing one of Stella's frocks at a charity do. It's all coming together."
