Sir Paul McCartney is already planning a second child with wife HEATHER - just two months after she gave birth to their daughter BEATRICE MILLY.

Friends of the family say the pair are so thrilled with the new addition to their family, they're ready to begin trying for another.

A pal says, "They would love to have another baby and they don't want much of an age gap between their children.

"And because he's now 61, Paul doesn't want to leave it for too long before having another go. So there won't be much rest for Heather."

Baby Beatrice was 35-year-old amputee Heather's first child - Sir Paul has four grown-up kids from his marriage to first wife Linda, who died of cancer in 1998.
