'Not in separate rooms tonight!’ Paul McCartney details moment he fell for his wife


In his new book, The Lyrics, Sir Paul McCartney gushed about his longtime relationship with the American businesswoman, whom he has been married to since 2011. 

“There’s no denying it, I really enjoy dancing,” the 79-year-old wrote. “It’s something my wife Nancy and I are particularly keen on.”

Paul and Nancy are so in tune with one another that whenever The Beatles star finishes one of his shows on tour, while the crew and band are quick to gather together for drinks, the doting couple make a run for the dance floor.

With two marriages behind him, Paul explained after getting with Nancy, he was very cautious not to rush into the relationship, which is why the pair slept in separate bedrooms during one of their first getaway trips to Morocco. 

The pair, who were joined on their holiday by Paul’s brother Mike and his wife Rowena Horne, still hadn’t made their romance official at that point, but their chemistry was so intact the Coming Up singer eventually started to give in by making the first move.

“The piano was sitting in the foyer all day long, and because the rain would not stop, I sometimes went and just noodled on the keys,” he shared.

“I was thinking all sorts of loving thoughts towards Nancy, and while I was at the piano, I could see that the waiters who were clearing up were listening. 

“But it was nice and romantic, it was a perfect moment, and I thought to myself, ‘We’re not going to stay in separate rooms tonight.’”

Before the two went on to tie the knot at a London Register Office in 2011, Paul gushed he was already head over heels in love with his significant other long before their big day, going on to say if he had to describe Nancy in one word, it would be “real”.

He even recalled a meeting where he and Nancy were invited to the White House to meet with former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. 

Meanwhile, Paul recently revealed penning his book felt “more like a therapy session” as he tackled many forgotten memories from the good and the bad.

The publication includes over 100 song lyrics from Paul’s seven-decade-long career, including his biggest hits such as Hey Jude, Penny Lane and Love Me Do. 

Other featured song lyrics include those from his time in the band Wings alongside songs he recorded during his lengthy solo career.

The Lyrics is available in all book stores now.
