(Newser) – Less than a year after his acrimonious divorce with Heather Mills was finalized, Paul McCartney plans to wed New Jersey trucking heiress Nancy Shevell, the Daily Mail reports. The two are “blissfully happy together," says McCartney, who received the blessing of first wife Linda's family. Even Paul's daughter Stella, who opposed his marriage to Mills and never warmed to the former model, gave thumbs up. "Getting Stella's seal of approval was very important for Paul," a source said.

For her part, multi-millionaire Nancy—who recently divorced a wealthy Long Island lawyer—buys gifts for Stella's kids. Nancy "could never be portrayed as being interested in Sir Paul for his money," a friend said. "She is calm, measured and mature, whereas Heather is fiery and impulsive."
