Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Contents -

A cynic might be tempted to roll their eyes at Sir Paul Mccart­ney’s ex­pla­na­tion that “rais­ing kids” is why it has taken him 24 years to tour Aus­tralia. But for all his pro­fes­sional achieve­ments – and given ap­prox­i­mately 98 per cent of the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion are es­ti­mated to be fans of The Bea­tles, there’s no need to re­cap the CV of the most suc­cess­ful song­writer in his­tory here – to his fam­ily, fa­ther­hood will be his defin­ing legacy. So it seems ap­pro­pri­ate to­day’s cover pho­to­graph was taken by his daugh­ter Mary, with her proud dad telling Stel­lar the world-ex­clu­sive im­ages are fur­ther proof of why she is his “favourite pho­tog­ra­pher”. The un­con­di­tional and un­wa­ver­ing love of a par­ent is also at the heart of our in­ter­view with rugby player Dean Mumm and his wife Sarah, as they open up about los­ing two ba­bies when they set out to start a fam­ily. It’s a heart­break­ing yet ul­ti­mately tri­umphant tale, and it is im­pos­si­ble not to be moved by their brav­ery and hon­esty when read­ing it. Sar­rah
