Other Relationship Information about Linda McCartney and Paul McCartney:

In May 1968, McCartney met Eastman again in New York, when Lennon and McCartney were there to announce the formation of Apple Corps. In September, McCartney phoned Eastman and asked her to fly over to London. He later said that Eastman was the woman who "gave me the strength and courage to work again" (after the break-up of the group). Six months later, McCartney and Eastman were married at a small civil ceremony (when Linda was four months pregnant with McCartney's child) at Marylebone Registry Office on 12 March 1969. Paul adopted Linda's daughter from her first marriage, Heather Louise (now a potter), and the couple had three more children together: photographer Mary Anna, fashion designer Stella Nina, and musician James Louis. Paul and Linda (reportedly) spent less than a week apart during their entire marriage, interrupted only by Paul's incarceration in Tokyo on drug charges in January 1980.

"Linda gave me the strength and courage to work again" Paul McCartney

"She was a great person to hang out with. She was beautiful, smart and talented. She was a very natural girl, naturally blonde, so funny. She didn't know she was dying - she was such a strong, forward-thinking lady. She was fighting right up to the end." Paul McCartney
