McCartney, 78, and Shevell, 60, got married at London's Old Marylebone Town Hall with family and friends in attendance. It wasn’t expected that the former Beatle would marry again after he had a bitter divorce from his second wife.

McCartney had to pay out an alleged $35 million to Heather Mills in their divorce. What Shevell has in common with the musician’s first wife, Linda Eastman, is that she’s also an American.
