Vegetarian Paul McCartney to marry Nancy Shevell

People magazine is reporting that Paul McCartney is engaged to marry Nancy Shevell, his girlfriend of four years. The couple met in the Hamptons in 2007.

McCartney is a longtime vegetarian and animal rights advocate. The 68-year-old former Beatle and his daughters, Stella and Mary, launched Meat Free Monday in 2009 to raise awareness of the environmental impact of meat production and consumption. The McCartney’s believe that everyone can make a difference by participating in at least one meat-free day each week.

A source close to Stella McCartney told People that Stella is "thrilled for her father."

From all of us here at TDIV, we wish Paul MCartney and Nancy Shevell a happy and healthy future together.
