Wishing Heather McCartney a very happy birthday today. Heather is always the one "Beatle kid" that has my sympathy. She was thrown into the spotlight at a young age because her mom married one of the Beatles. Suddenly, every Beatle fan wanted to talk to the cute little girl. She was often bratty towards the fans, and then she retreated into herself and was into punk music and her own thing. While her little sisters have been extremely successful in their careers, Heather has stayed way out of the spotlight. Really the last I have heard from her was in the early 2000s when she launched her own pottery line.
Rumors say that she lives a quiet life in Arizona. Rumors also claim that she struggles with mental illness. I hope that wherever Heather is today, that she is happy and has found peace away from her family's fame. I hope she gets to celebrate her birthday today with cake, friends, and laughter.
