Is Ava Phillippe Dating Paul McCartney’s Grandson Arthur Donald?
A young power couple to watch.
Move over, Brooklyn Beckham and Chloë Grace Moretz—there may be a new young power couple in town: Ava Phillippe and Arthur Donald.
After stunning the world at Le Bal des Débutantes in Paris, many assumed Ava Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s glamorous daughter, may have been interested in Maharaja Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur, who escorted her to the debutante ball. But it turns out she may have her eye on someone else. While on the London leg of the press tour to support her mom in A Wrinkle in Time, Phillippe and Arthur Donald, a grandson of Paul McCartney, were spotted heading to Sketch, an all-pink 18th-century tearoom turned cocktail lounge.
Arthur, the son of Stella McCartney‘s sister, the photographer Mary McCartney, recently left the United Kingdom for the United States to continue his studies at Yale. Phillippe has yet to announce which university she will be attending, but in July 2017 her dad told the hosts of Live! with Kelly and Ryan that she will be college bound very soon. Hopefully we’ll get those happy campus move-in pics soon enough, just like we got with Malia Obama and Brooklyn Beckham.
While it is unclear whether they are just friends or have become a couple, the two 18-year-olds looked particularly happy to be strolling through Mayfair together before stopping at the celebrity hotspot, as reported by Daily Mail. The date also appears to have taken place before Phillippe’s spur-of-the-moment new haircut; she debuted her blunt bob on March 14, just in time for the red carpet premiere of her mom’s new film.
For now, it may be uncertain when or how the two scions met, but their lives could easily have overlapped, considering one granddad is a Beatle and the other’s mom was Elle Woods (and seemingly Hollywood’s power producer of the moment).
