Soul legend Aretha Franklin got engaged during New Year festivities for the third time at 69 years old.
The ‘Respect‘ singer, who lost 85 lb last year after a massive health scare, is now engaged to long-term friend William ‘Willie’ Wilkerson.
They are planning on marrying this summer (ideally June/ July) on Miami Beach, Florida, with a reception on a private yacht.
“No, I’m not pregnant!,” she joked in the statement to the press.
She is considering Vera Wang, Valentino and Donna Karan to design her wedding dress for the big day.
