Can you blame her?

After designing two adorable collections for babyGap and GapKids, Stella McCartney must have found it too hard to fight the urge to procreate.

The designer -- and daughter of Paul McCartney -- is expecting her fourth child (cue the Fab Four jokes) in late fall, her spokesman has confirmed. She and husband Alasdhair Willis are already parents to two sons, Miller, 5, and Beckett, 2, and a daughter, Bailey, 3.

"Stella loves the idea of having a close-knit family, just like the one she grew up in," a source told the London Daily Mail of McCartney, who is herself one of four children. "She's a great mum. She has been telling all her friends the good news."

McCartney hinted that she was back on the baby game in February. "I'm kind of interested in having more children," she told the London Evening Standard. "Though I'm ready to have a bit of a break first."

So much for her break! Now what we want to know is will she be designing a capsule collection for GapMaternity?

Inquiries to the Gap for comment were not returned.
