London: The Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney is finally tying the knot with his long-term girlfriend Nancy Shevell.

Marrying for the third time, the 68-year-old singer has confirmed via his spokesperson that he has proposed to American businesswoman Nancy, who is 17 years junior to him.

“Paul`s family are over the moon. He`s the happiest he`s been in years,” a source told the Sun.

"Unlike Heather, all his kids love Nancy. It might not be long after he divorced Heather but they are truly happy together so they thought, ``Why not?” the source added.

The rocker married first wife Linda in 1969. And after the failure of his second marriage with former glamour model Heather Mills, he instantly fell for Nancy, 51, when they were introduced on a trip to the Hamptons, New York, in 2007.
