There's no denying the life of Heather Mills has been anything but ordinary.Born on January 12, 1968, in Tyne and Wear, Heather Mills grew up in a difficult environment. Hating a parent's fiancée or partner is rarely about hating a particular person. Either way, Paul invited Mills into his life for a reason. But for his kids, and for so many kids who lose their parents' marriage either through death or divorce, that new person represents something very different. No matter how fantabulous the new partner is, they become a mascot who chants one thing - there's no going back to the way it was. It's not part of our human condition to hate someone for no reason. Sometimes parents don't need a minute, or maybe they just don't want a minute.

In May 2006, after four years, the couple announced they were separating.

A joint statement said they had "found it increasingly difficult to maintain a normal relationship with constant intrusion into our private lives".

The thing is, Paul Mc Cartney met and began dating Heather Mills in 1999, just one year after his wife and mother of his children, Linda, died of breast cancer.

She's the former model and anti-landmine campaigner who survived a horrific accident and captured the heart of a Beatle.

Heather was presenting at a charitable awards ceremony at London's Dorchester in May 1999 when she met the man who would change her life - former Beatle Paul Mc Cartney.

Clearly affected by the blonde activist's presentation the musician later got in touch.

The relationship between her father Mark, a former paratrooper, and his wife Beatrice was characterised by violence.

Before Heather had turned ten her mother became involved with an actor and moved out of the family home, leaving the children with their father.

The couple became engaged during a visit to the Lake District and tied the knot in front of 300 guests at a church in the grounds of Ireland's 17th-century Castle Leslie on June 11, 2002.
