With the country’s richest pop star for a father, Stella McCartney might not be expected to suffer from the same worries as other working mothers.

However, the daughter of Sir Paul McCartney says that raising her four children at the same time as running her fashion label leaves her regretful. “I must admit that at times I feel overwhelmed,” she says.

“I feel guilty because I don’t do either of the things well: neither work 100 per cent, nor being a mother 100 per cent.”
McCartney, 39, who is married to Alasdhair Willis, 40, a “creative consultant”, gave birth to her second daughter, Reiley, last year. As well as their four-year-old daughter, Bailey, they have two sons, Miller, six, and Beckett, three.

Nice to see she's just as grounded as her mum. Linda would be so proud!
