Paul McCartney posted a touching throwback tribute for Mother’s Day on Instagram on Sunday.
His late mother Mary inspired the rocker to write the song Let It Be and she was the main breadwinner in the family with her career as a nurse and a midwife.
Paul posted an adorable black and white image which had never been seen before by any of his fans.
In the snap, a much younger Paul grinned alongside his brother Peter and his doting nurse mum Mary.
The two young boys wore matching braces and smart shirts for the family portrait.
“Wishing Mothers all over the world a Happy #MothersDay – Paul #PaulMcCartney,” he captioned the image.
The musician posted the unseen snap with his 2.9 million Instagram followers.
Paul confided in James Corden his mum was the inspiration for the iconic track Let It Be.
“I had a dream in the Sixties where my mum who died came to me in a dream and was reassuring me, saying: ‘It’s gonna be OK. Just let it be…””I felt so great. She gave me the positive word.
“So I woke up and was like, ‘What’d she say? Let it be.’ … That’s kind of good. So I wrote the song ‘Let it Be’ but it was that positivity.” Paul McCartney’s mum died in 1956 when he was just 14 years old.
