He's just come through a notoriously messy divorce. So who can blame Paul McCartney for taking things slow with new girlfriend, Nancy Shevell?
But the new Beatle is – finally! – breaking his silence about their budding relationship.
"I just like being in love," he told the U.K.'s Sunday Times
. (Alas, that's all
he'd say on the subject.)
For her part, Shevell – an American businesswoman who's amicably separated from her husband – insists she isn't stressed by his mega-fame.
"I'm a cancer survivor, I run a trucking company and I've got a 16-year-old to raise," she told the paper. "That's stress."
McCartney and Shevell were first spotted together a year ago. Since his divorce from Heather Mills
was finalized, they have been spotted together more frequently. Recently, she accompanied him on his high-profile trip to Israel.Who's your Favorite Star Under 35? PEOPLE.com and the People's Choice Awards are counting your votes! Click here to vote now!RELATED ARTICLES:
