Gregg Allman is ready to tie the knot again. In a new interview on Piers Morgan Tonight, the Allman Brothers musician confirms he is set to marry his 24-year-old girlfriend Shannon Williams.
This will be Allman’s seventh marriage. He tells Piers Morgan that “this time I’m really in love.”
When asked how Shannon feels about being his seventh wife, Allman insists they don’t look at that way. “That’s not what she’s becoming. She’s becoming wife number one. I don’t have a wife, I haven’t had one for years,” the 64-year-old explains.
In other celebrity engagement news, actress Keira Knightley confirmed Friday she is engaged to Klaxons rocker James Righton. No other details were released. Knightley and Righton met last year through model and TV personality Alexa Chung. They began dating that February, just two months after Knightley ended her 5 year relationship with actor Rupert Friend.
