Apparently LeBron James and fiancée Savannah Brinson weren’t the only longtime, high profile couple that decided to make things official this holiday season. Living legend Aretha Franklin and companion William “Willie” Wilkerson became engaged around Christmas time. Franklin told the Associated Press that she and Wilkerson may get hitched as soon as this summer. The 69-year-old super-soulstress said the ceremony may go down in Miami Beach, with a reception on a private yacht.
“No, I’m not pregnant,” the Grammy-winning performer joked.
Franklin is considering Valentino, Vera Wang & Donna Karan to design the dress for what would be her third wedding. The Classic diva was married to Ted White from 1961 to 1969, and actor Glynn Turman from 1978 to 1984.
Congratulations to the happy couple. All the best to Aretha and Willie!
