we never learn
Sir Paul McCartney is getting married for the third time to his girlfriend of four years, Nancy Shevell. According to People.com, the couple have recently become engaged. The pair met in the summer of 2007 after McCartney's highly publicized and bitter divorce from then-wife Heather Mills.
Though the 68-year-old Beatle is 17 years older than the 51-year-old Shevell, it seems that the couple is ready to take the plunge. Not much is known about the New York businesswoman -- a board member of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority as well as vice president of a family-owned transportation conglomerate -- but Sir Paul is seemingly head-over-heels.
An unnamed source tells People, "They have the right chemistry. They're both cool, chilled-out and optimistic." The source continued by saying that Shevell has also won over McCartney's five children. Best wishes to the happy couple.
