Sir Paul McCartney – A Pretty Normal Grandad

Maree / Nov 11, 2020

Sir Paul McCartney has four grandchildren from his daughter Stella – Miller, Bailey, Beckett and Reiley, who are between the ages of 11 and 16, and has four grandchildren from his daughter Mary between the ages of 10 and 22 – Arthur, Elliot, Sid and Sam.

Paul says that he is “pretty normal” when it comes to his relationship with his eight grandchildren despite his fame, and like so many of us, he often goes on holiday with the grandkids.

Sir Paul, 79, told Chris Evans on his Virgin Radio Breakfast Show that he is a “terrific” grandparent, adding: “You know, I love them and I love being a granddad.

“And we spend quite a good bit of time together. We don’t live near each other, but we go on holiday together, like Christmas. And in the summer we’ll see each other. And then sometimes me and (my wife) Nancy pick them up from school. So that’s nice.”

He said: “It’s great fun you know, because you don’t know how to do it like parenting. It’s ad lib, it’s the biggest ad lib. So when grand-parenthood comes around, it’s like, ‘OK, what do we do here?’ And so I say that joy is like picking them up at school and they love it.”

He added: “I don’t think it’s just us, I think it’s also the ice cream that’s got something to do with it! So you do all those things, you know, and you can play with them and stuff.

“And then as everyone always says there’s the hand-off factor. ‘He has just pooped his pants love, here. Over to you.’” We can all relate to that Sir Paul!
