NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Paul McCartney is about to be a married man, once again.
The former Beatle and his longtime girlfriend, Nancy Shevell, are engaged, the iconic singer’s publicist confirmed to Access Hollywood on Friday.
McCartney, 68, and Shevell, 51 – who hit the red carpet together on Monday night for the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City – first started dating during the summer of 2007.
This will be the third marriage for McCartney.
He wed Linda McCartney in 1969, and the couple remained married until Linda died of breast cancer in 1998.
In 2002, he tied the knot with Heather Mills. However, McCartney filed for divorce in 2006. The messy divorce was finalized in 2008.
McCartney has five children from his previous relationships, ranging in age from 48 to 7 years old.
