After last year's notorious divorce from Heather Mills, former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has told friends he will wed new girlfriend Nancy Shevell.

He recently said: "We are blissfully happy together."

Friends and family are also delighted with the match, even daughter Stella, who opposed his second marriage.

"All Paul's children had massive reservations about Heather - but it was Stella who was the most vociferous," a well-placed source said.

"Getting Stella's seal of approval was very important for Paul."

Shevell would be his third wife. Long-time partner Linda died in 1998 at the age of 56 after a battle with cancer.
