Aretha Franklin is engaged to her longtime friend William “Willie” Wilkerson.

The Huffington Post reports that the Grammy-winning singer and her man are considering a summer wedding, possibly in Miami Beach, Fla. The Queen of Soul wants to follow the ceremony with a reception on a private yacht.

The 69-year-old jokingly added, “No, I’m not pregnant.”

Franklin and Wilkerson got engaged over the holidays. Always a diva, Franklin is considering Vera Wang, Valentino and Donna Karan to design her dress (we’re betting on Vera Wang). She has been married twice before

Congrats to the happy couple.
