Paul McCartney Gushes Over Nancy Shevell: "I'm So Happy"

After almost a year of paparazzi photos chronicling their relationship, Paul McCartney has gone on the record about his American lady love Nancy Shevell. The pair were first spotted kissing in the Hamptons last November, went on a road trip across the US in August and were sailing in the Hamptons earlier this month. Despite the chronicling, McCartney hasn't spoken to the press about the 47-year-old Nancy.

But McCartney, at a London Fashion Week event, talked to a UK Paper:

"I'm so happy," he said. As we quaffed Moet and got stuck into vegetarian cannelloni with Macca he raved about their month-long 3,000- mile road trip across seven US states.

"We had a brilliant time in the US. We stayed mainly in hotels but did the whole Route 66 gig," he told us.

"It's an amazing thing to do - I would recommend it.

"It was great and we're so happy."
While his American socialite girlfriend chatted to mutual friends, he was overheard saying: "Things are going great. We enjoy one another's company and Nancy gets on brilliantly with the family.

"It is still early days but we are very much together. She is wonderful."

Paul's divorce from Heather Mills was finalized earlier this year.
