Chelsea Clinton: You were talking about supporting your children and encouraging them to find their own directions. How do you think about that on a creative level? Ensuring that your kids don’t feel the pressure of being as creative as their mother—or their grandparents—but that they can be if they want to be?

Stella McCartney: “I really struggle with that one because I have been bringing up my kids in a city, and I really did think that by the time I was ready to have children I would have probably gone back to the country to live on a farm and mimic the upbringing that I had. But my business in based in London, and my husband’s work is there also, and the idea of running off to the country and shielding them from the realities of life and the speed of what happens in the city isn’t realistic. I am certainly not bringing up my kids in the same way that I was brought up—and I do sometimes worry about that. But, I have to encourage them to be who they are. That is all I want to do—to see how I can shelter them when I can, and if I can’t, to make sure that they know they have my unconditional love.”
