Paul recharges his batteries on paradise isle break with Nancy

1 APRIL 2008
His high profile divorce case now behind him, Paul McCartney jetted to the Caribbean this week to enjoy a romantic break with the new woman in his life - US socialite Nancy Shevell.

The former Beatle, whose romance with the 47-year-old reportedly blossomed last October, is enjoying a break with his beautiful new girlfriend at Antigua's upmarket Jumby Bay resort. They've been spending their time sailing and paddling in the turquoise waters and stealing kisses as they sun themselves hand-in-hand on the island's white sand shoreline.

"Everyone on the beach could see they only had eyes for each other" reveals a source. "They seemed so happy and relaxed in each other's company, as though they've been together for years."

Millionairess Nancy, who is vice president of her family's hugely successful US transport business, has known Paul for years. She and her former husband, lawyer Bruce Blakeman, were friends of the singer and his late wife Linda. The pair have grown closer in recent months, with Paul appearing to have found happiness once more.

"Paul looks so happy," added the source. "He seems years younger!"
