Congratulations: Aretha Franklin Got Engaged Over The Holidays Too!!

69-Year-Old Aretha Franklin To Marry Longtime Friend

Here’s a little hope for all the chicks out there hoping to get someone to put a ring on it in 2012.

Aretha Franklin got to close out this crazy year in which she reportedly almost died with some very happy news.

Via People.com:

Aretha Franklin and her “forever friend” William ‘Willie’ Wilkerson are engaged to be married, her rep tells PEOPLE.

The iconic singer, 69, and Wilkerson are discussing tying the knot on Miami Beach, with an exclusive reception aboard a private yacht.

And for her dress?

“Ms. Franklin is considering Donna Karan, Valentino and the queen of wedding dresses, Vera Wang, to design her gown,” says her rep.

Franklin lost 85 pounds last year after a health scare and told PEOPLE, “I feel fabulous.”

Adds Franklin herself of the upcoming nuptials: “We’re looking at June or July for our date and no, I’m not pregnant, LOL!”

Aaaaaaw! Nothing like that geriatric love. Congrats Aretha!
