Paul McCartney reveals romantic side as he confesses to showering wife Nancy Shevell with cards and affection: ‘I’m completely exaggerating Valentine’s Day’
Paul McCartney is not only arguably the most successful songwriter of popular music of all time, he is also a self-proclaimed romantic.
The legendary musician, who wrote Yesterday while with The Beatles, which is one of the most played songs in music history, revealed what he considers his role as husband to his wife Nancy Shevell on his website.
In the post, the Liverpool, England native explained how he always “just tries to be good to my wife Nancy and try to be thoughtful and romantic.”
The And I Love Her singer went on to share how he goes out of his way to shower his lady with love and affection when it comes to holidays like Valentine’s Day.
I’m totally exaggerating Valentine’s Day! I mean, there isn’t just one card, there are cards hidden around the room, and sometimes things even carry on into the next day – it’s completely stupid. “If there’s an excuse to have fun, I’m exaggerating!” he said about his experience with the special day for lovers.

It’s a similar story when it comes to the Christmas holidays at the McCartney house: “At Christmas, the tree lights and fairy lights drive me crazy – I’m totally overdoing it.”
Known as one of the great and innovative bass players, the multi-instrumentalist also said he likes to be the man Shevell can rely on to “provide some strength when she’s going through some tough times.”
He added, “In fact, I’m very proud to be “The Guy” there. And I know she is grateful. So that’s my role as a husband: it has to be the power and the romance at the same time. I don’t think I consciously chose to be that way. It’s just how I do things.’
