Probably, Stella McCartney is one of the most contradictory personalities in the fashion world. She is in love with designing brand new clothes and accessories, but she is a reasonable minimalist at the same time and hates improper consumption. She doesn’t wear makeup, her hairstyle is very simple, and she never wears leather or fur coats as she is an animal rights activist.
Heather makes new collections each season, and she balances such a tough schedule with the up-bringing of four children. If you want to know more about the owner of the reputable fashion brand Stella McCartney LTD and meet the members of her big family, keep up reading!
Stella McCartney husband
Alasdhair Willis (husband)
Date of birth: September 13, 1971
He is handsome, elegant, and always modern, like the luxurious Chanel suit. Stella McCartney is a woman of great taste, and she knows how to choose everything wisely, including her husband.
They met during a business meeting at the breakfast table in the cozy Browns Restaurant, as grounded and sophisticated as themselves. And immediately they felt the chemistry between them. What started as a business partnership, has gradually grown into friendship and then into love. The couple tied a knot on August 30, 2003, in a cozy Scottish country house Mount Stuart, formerly owned by Marquis Alexander McGill.
Alasdhair seems to be the ideal husband. He always supported his wife and attended all her fashion shows. At the same time, he was building his career – Willis is a famous British publisher, artist, and also an advertising specialist. Previously, he collaborated with Modern Review magazine, for which he developed advertising projects. Later he founded his advertising brand “Announcement Creative”, which has collaborated with many reputable companies, including Adidas and Estee Lauder. In 2015, he tried his hand in the fashion industry, becoming the creative director of the house Hunter Boot Ltd, the high-quality shoe manufacturer. The same year, Alasdhair was named one of the 50 best-dressed British men by CQ magazine.
Stella McCartney kids
Miller Willis (son)
Date of birth: February 25, 2005
Miller Alasdhair James Willis
In 2005, Stella and Alasdhair became parents for the first time. They welcomed a cute and healthy boy, who received a very complex and long name – Miller Alasdhair James Willis (like it’s supposed for a traditional aristocrat). Unfortunately, on the Internet, you can hardly find any pictures of a teenager (Miller is in his final high school year as of 2020). And those photos, which are available, are occasionally made by the paparazzi. The reason is that his mother Stella is terrified of spoiling her children with popularity and wealth.
Bailey Willis (daughter)
Date of birth: December 8, 2006
Bailey Linda Olwyn Willis is the daughter of the fashion designer Stella McCartney and the publisher Alasdhair, Willis. Like her siblings, she stays out of the limelight.

In July 2007 Stella announced, that she was pregnant with her third baby. The son Beckett Robert Lee Willis arrived just during the New Year celebrations and became the best gift for his parents. He is a teenager nowadays.
Reiley Willis (daughter)
Date of birth: November 23, 2010
Reiley Dilys Stella Willis is the youngest addition to the McCartney-Willis family. She is a primary school graduate as of 2020. Her picture appeared for the first time in “Vogue”.
Who are Stella McCartney parents?
Paul McCartney (father)
Date of birth: June 18, 1942
We don’t think we can tell anything new and Sir Paul McCartney, the legendary person, due to whom Stella’s house was always full of high-quality music. The member of the fabled quartet “The Beatles” Paul became world-famous in his youth. After the breakup of the great band, he did not give up making music and founded his own musical group “Wings”, which released a total of 7 albums. After the breakup of this musical group, Paul decided to perform solo. The musician released his first solo album “McCartney II” in 1980.
Stella is still incredibly close to her dad. He became the role model in the field of building a career. He is also an example of a good parent for Stella. Paul has five children, and to each of them, he tries to give a piece of his heart.
Linda McCartney (mother)
Date of birth: September 24, 1941
Date of death: April 17, 1998
Stella loves her father, but there are many questions, which he can’t answer at all. Stella could raise these questions in front of the woman – her mother Linda McCartney. But she cannot do this, because Linda died many years ago. Since then, there is not a single day when the popular fashion designer did not remember her mom.
Before meeting Paul McCartney, Linda Eastman led an active life. The daughter of a Russian immigrant and American woman, Linda graduated from Vermont College with a bachelor’s degree in art. After graduation, she launched a career as a photographer. Stella’s mother was even married to Joseph Melville See, a geologist. This marriage resulted in a daughter Heather. The couple divorced in 1965.
Two years later, Linda met the love of her life – Paul McCartney. Their union turned out to be very productive. Linda inspired Paul, and he dedicated songs and wrote touching letters to her. Linda, on the other hand, was expecting her husband from the tour and raised their three children – the already well-known to us Stella, as well as her sister Mary and brother James.
Linda died in 1998 from breast cancer. Her love and life were depicted in the film “The Linda McCartney Story”, which was popular in the early 2000s.
Stella McCartney siblings
Heather McCartney (older half-sister)
Date of birth: December 31, 1962
Heather is Stella’s older half-sister from the maternal side. She is an adopted daughter of McCartney, who gave her his surname. Before the legal adoption, she had the surname of her biological father – See.
Like her mother, Heather was keen on art. She studied pottery at the art school and then started the career as an artist and potter. Her artworks enjoy wide popularity in Great Britain and the USA.
Heather shares a close bond with her half-siblings and a stepfather Paul. But she remained close with her biological father Joseph Melville See, too. She arranged Joseph’s funeral ceremony in 2000 after her blood-related father killed himself.
Mary McCartney (older sister)
Date of birth: August 28, 1969
Linda is closely-knitted with her older sister Mary McCartney. Very often the designer posts their childhood photos, and the warm words, which she uses to describe her older sister, can melt even the coldest heart.
Mary followed in her mother’s footsteps and became a photographer. Her exhibitions have been very well received in Great Britain and the USA. Previously, she worked for a publisher “Omnibus Press”.
Mary is the mother of four sons. She had first two sons – Arthur and Elliot – with her first husband Alistair Donald, a TV producer. They divorced in 2007. Three years later she re-married Simon Aboud, the film director, and welcomed two sons with him, too.
James McCartney (younger brother)
Date of birth: September 12, 1977
Obviously, Paul McCartney fans hoped, that all his kids inherited their daddy’s musical gene. But just one of them decided to follow the same path and to pursue the same career – of a musician.
James Louis McCartney is just “a little brother” for his sister Stella. But he is a talented musician for many people in England and abroad, who formed his extensive fan base. Having started by his father’s side, he assisted Paul in recording his popular album “Flaming Pie”. But James is an independent music star now. He boasts with four music sets, the latest of which is “The Blackberry Train”.
Beatrice McCartney (younger half-sister)
Date of birth: October 28, 2003
Stella’s youngest sibling is a half-sister from the paternal side, named Beatrice Milly McCartney. She is a daughter of Paul and his second wife Heather Mills, the ex-model, who lost her leg in a road accident.
Heather and Paul couldn’t even dream about having a baby, because Heather was considered infertile by doctors. That’s why she considered her sudden pregnancy as a miracle.
Beatrice stays connected with both her parents despite their divorce. Her mother Heather keeps the girl away from public life and doesn’t want her to experience “the celebrity lifestyle” too early.
