Sir Paul McCartney is engaged to be married to Nancy Shevell, a spokesman has confirmed.
The musician, 68, recently proposed to Shevell, 51. The couple have been together since November 2007.
Shevell is a member of the board of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and vice president of a family-owned transportation conglomerate which owns New England Motor Freight.
This will be McCartney's third marriage. His first, to Linda McCartney in 1969, ended when she died from breast cancer in 1998. His second marriage was to Heather Mills in 2002, but the couple separated in 2006 and divorced two years later.
Nancy Shevell was formerly married to lawyer Bruce Blakeman. They have a grown-up son, Arlen, currently a university student. She is reportedly on good terms with McCartney's children - Heather, 48, Mary, 41, Stella, 39, James, 33, and Beatrice, seven.
McCartney is said to have proposed to Shevell in New York last weekend. A date for the wedding has not yet been revealed.
The news was confirmed by a McCartney spokesman, who said "It's true". McCartney's brother Michael, 67, was unware of the engagement until contacted by reporters, saying: "It's a surprise to me - but it's wonderful."

A Beatles fan from Argentina has turned his collection of memorabilia into a museum dedicated to the group. The collection of Rodolfo Vazquez, 53, opens today on Avenue Corrientes, Buenos Aires.
Among his treasures are a brick from the Cavern Club, part of the stage from Hamburg's Star-Club, a cheque for £11 signed by Ringo Starr, and a box of condoms bearing the names of John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Vazquez became a Beatles fan at the age of 10 after receiving their album Rubber Soul. His collection now contains more than 8,500 items, and in 2001 the Guinness World Records recognised him as having the planet's largest collection, at a time when his collection amounted to 5,612 items.
The museum contains just one quarter of Vazquez's collection, which includes autographs, toys, concert tickets and programmes, a pair of drumsticks signed by Pete Best, and Beatles-branded wigs, crockery, chewing gum and music boxes.
The idea is to show my collection permanently. In a year I would like to rotate the items on display with others from my collection. Otherwise all of it would be closed into boxes and trunks without anyone being able to enjoy them.
The Beatles Museum is at Paseo La Plaza, 1660 Corrientes Avenue, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
