Paul McCartney Takes Girlfriend to His Daughter's Paris Show
Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell
A beaming Paul McCartney declared himself happy with life as he took his girlfriend, Nancy Shevell, to a fashion show staged by his daughter Stella in Paris.

The ex-Beatle, 66, was full of smiles as he sat front row at the show Thursday. Asked about his own life and quest for happiness, he told PEOPLE, "I'm in a good place, I think."

Shevell, 48, didn't sit with McCartney but has attended several events with him recently, including a charity exhibition and auction of his daughter Mary McCartney's photography in London and his recent concert in Israel .

McCartney, sitting alongside son James and son-in-law Alasdhair Willis, cheered and whistled as Stella took her bow on the runway. His eyes were teary as his song, "Maybe I'm Amazed," closed the show.

"It was very moving – I'm a proud dad, and that nearly tipped me over the edge," he said afterward.

So what's next, aside from a romantic few days in Paris? "I'm making music, I'm playing music," McCartney said, before rushing backstage to congratulate his daughter.
