"I mean, there's not just one card, there are cards hidden around the room, and sometimes things even spill into the next day," he said.
Paul McCartney is displaying his tender side ahead of Valentine's Day. The Beatles musician added that, to him, being a husband means "trying to be considerate and romantic" and "just trying to be good" to his wife, Nancy Shevell, in a message uploaded on his website on January 30.
"I completely overdo Valentine's Day! I mean, there's not just one card, there are cards hidden around the room, and sometimes things even spill into the next day — it's completely silly," he said. "If there's an excuse to have some fun, I overdo it! At Christmas, I go crazy with the tree lights and fairy lights — totally overdo it."
The 63-year-old businesswoman and the 80-year-old English singer have been married since 2011, per PEOPLE. McCartney is pleased to be the one she "relies on."
He then shared that he feels "very proud" that he gets "to be 'The Guy' there. And I know she is grateful. So, that's my role as a husband: it's to be the strength 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," he added.
Paul McCartney married Shevell in 2011 following a nearly four-year relationship. Overall, it was his third marriage. In 1969, the Beatles musician married Linda Eastman, and the two were blissfully married until her death from breast cancer in 1998. The next year, in 2002, McCartney wed Heather Mills; but their marriage soon turned sour and their divorce was finalized in 2008, per Parade.
McCartney's kids are also very close with Shevell, with Stella, McCartney's daughter, becoming a fan of hers for the first time, per PEOPLE. The Beatles bassist loves being a father and a husband. On the website, he shared, "I would say that being a father and being a husband are two completely different things. As far as being a dad is concerned, I’ve always just tried to give my kids a bit of guidance if they seem to need it - but that was mainly when they were younger. Now that they are older, they’re guiding me!"
He added, "They don’t need so much guidance these days but if there’s ever a problem, I’m very happy to be the guy they come to. So, that’s largely the thing about being a dad. You’re just there to help, and I suppose, have fun with - we do have a lot of fun. Now they’re older we can have a drink together, for instance!"
