Devoted dad Paul McCartney

Sir Paul McCartney says he will always put his young daughter with ex-wife Heather Mills before his career

Sir Paul McCartney will always put his young daughter before his career.

The Beatles legend wants to make the most of his time with Beatrice - his six-year-old girl from his marriage to Heather Mills - and will fit his work around her.

He said: "I look a lot busier than I am, as I'm actually a rather sporadic, random person and I'll play a few gigs and then disappear for a while. I'm a pretty hands-on dad and make the most of my custody. I take care of my little one whenever I can, and she determines what I can do and where I can do it."

The 67-year-old rocker has insisted he has no plans to go on a long world tour, despite his December concert at London's O2 Arena selling out within four seconds, because he likes to be spontaneous.

He told Live magazine: "That must mean something. It probably means I could play the O2 every week for the rest of my life but I'd rather do things as the fancy takes me. Honestly, there is no master plan. My so-called career is a haphazard thing. I'm just having fun and relieved and happy that other people are still interested."
