Paul McCartney's pregnant daughter was left bruised and battered after two muggers viciously attacked her on a London street, it was reported last night.
The assault occurred as Mary McCartney, 33, left her work and was placing belongings in the trunk of her blue Mercedes.
One attacker jammed his hand over her mouth to stop her screams while the other removed her diamond earrings and yanked off her engagement ring and watch.
Mary, a professional photographer who's two months pregnant, was so terrified for the safety of her unborn child she put up no fight.
"It was planned. They were in hiding, waiting ready for Mary to arrive at her car. These weren't first-time thieves. They knew what they were doing," her friend told London's Sunday People.
"The McCartney family are all terribly shocked."
Mary, the oldest of Paul's three kids by his first wife, the late Linda McCartney, went to a local hospital as a precaution. The friend said Mary never dressed provocatively or flashed expensive jewelry.
"She likes the fact that she can walk around unrecognized," the friend said.
