Looks like wedding bells continue to ring in London for it’s celebrities, as Paul McCartney announces his engagement to Nancy Shevell. Although, no further details have been given for specific dates or whatnot, the singer popped the question during a romantic candle lit dinner. The couple has been frequently seen together gracing celebrity events and posing for pics at a gala evening at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. Noticeably, the ring still hasn’t made a public appearance.
Known for keeping a tight lip on his private life, 68 year old McCartney has been dating 51 year old Shevell for nearly four years after the rather bitter divorce of the famous Beatle with then wife, Heather Mills.
Receiving honorable knighthood from Queen Elizabeth, Sir Paul McCartney has 29 years of solid marriage to American photographer Linda Eastman. Paul admits they have only ever spent 11 nights apart during their entire marriage but sadly enough, breast cancer took her away from this wedded bliss in 1998. Their happy union gave them four children, one of which is well known designer Stella McCartney.
Love took McCartney on a second adventure with his marriage to British former model, Heather Mills in 2002 and gave them a daughter. However, the adventure turned sour for the couple and eventually led to a bitter divorce in 2006 and a legal squabble over money in 2008.
To date, Sir Paul McCartney seems to be basking in love with the Nancy Shevell, who happens to be a distinguished board member of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority. We certainly wish one of the wealthiest musicians in Britain another shot at bliss. With his fortune estimated to tip at $811 million, what more could he ask for?

Former Beatles frontman Paul McCartney held a concert Saturday night in Washington, DC. One of the highlights of the night was his rendition of Michelle, which he dedicated to the First Lady. Unfortunately, she was not in attendance as she had already left for Camp David by then. Maybe next time.
This summer, a benefit concert will be held by former Beatle Paul McCartney. He will grace the historic Piedmont Park in Atlanta on the 15th of August. Benefits will go to the upkeep and preservation of the park, which is being dwarfed by skyscrapers and other infrastructure.
Beatles fans, make sure you don’t miss this one. Tune in to Comedy Central tonight watch The Colbert Report to enjoy Paul McCartney as he discusses his latest project, Electric Argument.
