Aretha Franklin is engaged

Posted on

Here’s some news that deserves a little r-e-s-p-e-c-t. The 69-year-old Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, is engaged to be married.

Her rep confirms to EW that Franklin and her longtime friend William ‘Willie’ Wilkerson will tie the knot this year, possibly in Miami. And Franklin adds, “We’re looking at June or July for our date and no, I’m not pregnant, LOL!” [via People]
