Today would have been John Lennon's 71st birthday, and to honor the day, his former Beatles band mate Sir Paul McCartney reportedly plans to marry for the third time in London. The lucky lady is none other than Jersey-born trucking heiress, MTA board member, and Barbara Walters's second cousin Nancy Shevell. (Walters purportedly set the couple up, per the Observer.) While McCartney's reps are being coy about the whole thing — a statement to Reuters claimed, "It's all speculation" — McCartney briefly spoke to the gathered scrum of reporters outside his John's Wood house in London, saying: "Hi guys, thanks for coming out. We're looking forward to it." Which most people took as confirmation. Also, the Associated Press is now reporting that decorations have been delivered and a tent set up on the property, with the Daily Mirror tabloid adding that a fridge full of Champagne was brought in yesterday. The couple are expected to marry in the same register's office where McCartney wed his second wife, former model Heather Mills — whom he split from in a very public, very acrimonious divorce several years ago — though Shevell, who is Jewish, did receive a blessing at a local synagogue. Long life and much happiness to you, Sir Paul and Lady McCartney. [Daily Mirror UK via MSNBC]
