Paul McCartney engaged to Nancy Shevell

To wed: Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell are engaged, it emerged today.
Paul McCartney and his girlfriend of four years Nancy Shevell have got engaged, it emerged today. The 68-year-old musician started dating the 51-year-old New York businesswoman in the summer of 2007 - a year before his high profile divorce with Heather Mills was finalised. Despite the 17 year age difference, friends have described the pair as the 'perfect couple' with one source telling 'They have the right chemistry.' Stella McCartney, the Beatle legend's daughter from his first marriage to Linda, is said to be 'absolutely thrilled' for her father.
The news comes three years after McCartney's very public divorce from Heather Mills, which ended in a messy High Court battle. Paul met Nancy in the The Hamptons in New York and both said to share the same 'chilled and optimistic' outlook on life. Nancy, the vice president of a family-owned transportation conglomerate, also gets on fabulously with Paul's five children. He had four children with with Linda - who died of breast cancer in 1998 - Heather, 48, Mary, 41, Stella, 39 and James, 33.He has a fifth child with Mills, seven-year-old daughter Beatrice.
Paul and Nancy were recently pictured together on the red carpet at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last Tuesday. This will be the third wedding for former Beatle Sir Paul. He was married to Linda McCartney from 1969 until her death from breast cancer in 1998. He then married Mills, a former model and philanthropist, in 2002. The couple separated in May 2006 and were officially divorced in May 2008. Following his bitter divorce from Mills, Sir Paul was apparently in no rush to tie the knot with Nancy when they first started dating. In 2008 he said of Shevell: 'I just like being in love,' when asked about possible nuptials.
Paul spokesman has so far refused to confirm the news, which was reported by U.S. website 'We don't comment on this kind of thing,' Stuart Bell told news agency Reuters.
