Stella McCartney Expecting Baby in Spring
Word of her pregnancy came as the 33-year-old McCartney, who married former magazine publisher Alasdhair Willis last year, wound up her spring/summer collection show in Paris this week. The baby, who will arrive this spring, will make former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney a grandfather for the third time.
McCartney's rep, who prefers not to give his name, says, "Stella is looking forward to being a working mother," while the designer herself tells Britain's Daily Telegraph that she doesn't know the sex of her baby. "I want it to be a natural thing. I want the surprise."
It appears McCartney was inspired by impending motherhood when designing her new collection. Recognizable for its loose and airy ambience, the line featured billowing drawstring smocks and A-line tunics – all perfect for flattering a growing tummy.
