Your mom’s favorite Beatle, Paul McCartney, just announced that he’ll be marrying for the third time. Unlike previous wife Heather Mills, his current fiancee Nancy Shevell isn’t a public figure. So what do you need to know about her?
1. She’s related to Barbara Walters.
Nancy, a native New Yorker, is a second cousin of famed news anchor and The View doyenne Barbara Walters. She has said she thinks they’re a great pair. Reportedly, Paul’s kids like Nancy too.
2. She’s also a divorcee.
This will be Nancy’s second marriage. She was previously married to a lawyer named Bruce Blakeman. They have one son together, Arlen.
3. She has a successful career.
Though some outlets have simply identified Nancy as “a socialite,” she does work and make her own money. She is the Vice President of administration for New England Motor Freight, Inc. Also, she’s a member of the board of the New York MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority), which oversees New York area public transportation. This might be one reason why the couple reportedly isn’t signing a prenup.
4. She’s rocking some major bling.
According to Life & Style, Nancy’s engagement ring from Paul cost a cool $650,000. Baby, you’re a rich woman.
5. She doesn’t have her own Wikipedia page.
A Wiki search for Nancy’s name redirects you to a page entitled “Personal relationships of Paul McCartney.” Ouch. Maybe she can get an upgrade soon?
