Paul McCartney is engaged to Nancy Shevell, his girlfriend of four years.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (MAY 2, 2011) REUTERS - Paul McCartney is engaged to his New York girlfriend of four years in what would be the third marriage for the former Beatle.

Nancy Shevell, 51, a board member of New York's transportation authority, and McCartney, 68, have been dating for about four years. The pair posed for cameras at a gala event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 2).

The singer's spokesman Stuart Bell confirmed the engagement to Reuters on Friday (May 6).

McCartney was married for 29 years to American photographer Linda Eastman until her death of cancer in 1998. He then married British former model Heather Mills in 2002 but the union ended in a messy and high-profile divorce in 2008.
