London: Fashion designer Stella McCartney, daughter of Beatles legend Paul McCartney, is expecting her fourth child with husband Alasdhair Willis.

The 38-year-old designer- who already has two sons, Miller, five, and Beckett, two, and a daughter Bailey, three, will give birth to the baby later this year, reported a news website.

"Stella loves the idea of having a close-knit family, just like the one she grew up in. She`s a great mum. She has been telling all her friends the good news," said a source close to the designer.

Recently Stella - who has three sisters, Heather, Mary and Beatrice, and a brother, James - said that she was looking forward to taking some time off from being pregnant, but confessed she was thinking about extending her family.

"I`m kind of interested in having more children. Though right now I feel like I`ve only just stopped having them, so I`m ready to have a bit of a break first," she said.
