Carey, who starred in perhaps the greatest new Who story, Blink, revealed in my newspaper The Liverpool Echo that Paul McCartney‘s mum, Mary, was the midwife who delivered her dad Stephen at Walton Hospital.
She added: “I saw Sir Paul McCartney at the Golden Globes and that made me go ‘Oh my God’ because my dad was delivered by his mum. I wanted to go and tell him that.”
If you didn’t know, Sir Paul’s mum is the ‘mother Mary’ he sings about in Let It Be.
Carey’s dad moved down to London, where the actress was born, with the family moving to Germany when she was three.
None of which gets me any closer to my fantasy of getting her to come and live with me as my second wife, as long as I can call her Sally. Too creepy?
