Post By RelatedRelated Post

Aretha Franklin is engaged to longtime friend William (Willie) Wilkerson.

The Grammy-winning singer told the Associated Press in a statement today that she and Wilkerson are considering a summer wedding, perhaps in Miami Beach, Florida. The Queen of Soul wants to follow the ceremony with a reception on a private yacht.

The 69-year-old jokes: “No, I’m not pregnant.”

Franklin and Wilkerson became engaged over the holidays.

She is considering Vera Wang, Valentino and Donna Karan to design her dress.

Franklin has been married twice before.
