Paul McCartney to marry?

Rumours suggest the former Beatle is planning to pop the question

Paul McCartney and girlfriend Nancy Shevell are reportedly planning to marry.

The couple, who have been seen in public together regularly for the past year, are now legally allowed to marry after Shevell‘s divorce from lawyer Bruce Blakeman was finalised in December.

McCartney‘s children, including Stella McCartney are said to have given the couple their backing, reports the Sunday Mirror.

Shevell will be McCartney‘s third wife if the couple do marry. His first wife, Linda McCartney, died from cancer in 1998. In 2006, he filed for a divorce from Heather Mills, after four years of marriage.

In March 2008, Mills was awarded £24.3 million in the divorce settlement.
