Aretha Franklin Engaged!

The Queen of Soul, 69, recently announced her engagement to longtime friend, William "Willie" Wilkerson...
 -- Legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin is engaged to her "longtime friend and confidant," William 'Willie' Wilkerson, Franklin's spokeswoman said in a statement.
The "forever friends" are thinking about getting married in Miami Beach, Florida, with a reception afterward aboard a luxury yacht, the statement added.
The 69-year-old singer is considering Donna Karan, Valentino and Vera Wang to design her dress.
"We're looking at June or July for our date and no I'm not pregnant, LOL!" Franklin said in the statement.
Franklin, the so-called Queen of Soul, was the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She is known for hits including "Respect" and "Chain of Fools. Source
It's good to see Ms. Franklin in good spirits, especially after her health scare over a year ago that was rumored to be pancreatic cancer. Although this will make husband number three for her, there's nothing more beautiful than finding someone you want to share your life with, no matter what the age. Congrats to the happy couple!
