Fashion designer Stella Mccartney has vowed to emulate the child-rearing tactics of her ex-beatle father SIR PAUL if she ever has children.

Despite labelling her famous dad a "tight b***ard" for sending her to a state school - Stella insists she respects her father's efforts to give her as normal an upbringing as possible.

Stella - engaged to former magazine publisher ALASDHAIR WILLIS - says, "Hopefully I'll be living in the country if I'm lucky enough to have kids and they'll go to normal schools and nobody will know about them unless they decide they want to be known about."
