Paul McCartney, 79, loved his wife massively and confessed in one of the interviews that his signature dance skills were only because of his long-term relationship with Nancy Shevell, who is a 61-year-old businesswoman at present.

He has also written some books. In one of his books, The Lyrics, Paul had written about his wife and how he knew Nancy was a keeper when she matched his intensity on the dancefloor.

‘There’s no denying it, and I genuinely enjoy dancing; it’s something that both my wife Nancy and I are passionate about. We’re always the first ones on the dancefloor after a gig when the band and crew come together for a drink.’ Certain tunes will simply make you want to dance,’ Paul wrote.

Before going to get married, Nancy and Paul met on vacation in Morocco with Paul’s brother Mike, and the musician serenaded her on the hotel piano.

When he made his move, the Beatles star revealed that they weren’t yet formally in a relationship and were sleeping in separate bedrooms.

‘The piano was sitting in the foyer all day, and because the rain wouldn’t stop, I’d go in and just noodle on the keys; I was having all kinds of wonderful thoughts about Nancy while I was at the piano, and I could tell the waiters sweeping up were paying attention, But it was lovely and romantic, and it was the ideal moment, and I said to myself, “We’re not going to do this.” Paul explained

He further writes in his book, ‘If you had to state one word about her, it would be that she’s real,’ he said in his book. When we traveled to the White House, I took a stunning photograph. Nancy and I are speaking with Barack and Michelle Obama, and we’re giggling at something the president said.

‘Nancy seems to be paying a lot of attention. She’s a wonderful person. She’s got a lot of different sides to her.’

He has included 154 songs in his book throughout his entire career, including his time with the Beatles, Wings, and as a solo artist. And also included the lyrics from songs such as Hey Jude, Blackbird, Penny Lane, and Band.
