He said, 'I mean, there’s not just one card, there are cards hidden around the room, and sometimes things even spill into the next day...'
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and one person who knows how to celebrate love is Paul McCartney. In an interview posted on his website, he shared that being a husband he tries to be good to his wife, "considerate and romantic." However, he thinks that he overdoes on Valentine's Day. McCartney said, "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. 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."
He believes that his duties don't end there. The Beatles singer said, "I try to be helpful as a husband too. If there’s a problem, I like to be the guy that will lend some strength to it. I’m always very happy to be the person Nancy relies on, and to be her strength when she goes through tough times." McCartney and Nancy Shevell got married to each other in 2011. He said, "I am very proud, in fact, 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 shared in the interview.
This is McCartney's third marriage, a source told PEOPLE about the couple in 2011 that "they have the right chemistry," and "they're both cool, chilled out and optimistic." Since the wedding, they both have been open about their romance. Last Valentine's Day, McCartney posted a picture of his wife on Instagram and wrote, "Swing and sway on Valentine’s Day - Paul ❤️"
Moreover, the musician also spoke about being a father in his interview. He said, "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! 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 of being a dad." As a father, he thinks that he is "there to help and I suppose to have fun with - we do have a lot of fun." He continued, "Now they’re older we can have a drink together, for instance!"
McCartney is known for love songs like "Maybe I'm Amazed," "Eight Days a Week," "All You Need Is Love" and "Silly Love Songs." In an interview with Billboard in 2001, he shared that he knew that many people called him "soppy" for writing love songs, but he considers himself lucky to have so much love in his wife.
He said, "Over the years, people have said, ‘Aw, he sings love songs, he writes love songs, he’s so soppy at times.’ I thought, Well, I know what they mean, but people have been doing love songs forever,” McCartney stated. “I like ’em, other people like ’em, and there’s a lot of people I love — I’m lucky enough to have that in my life. So the idea was that “you” may call them silly, but what’s wrong with that?,” according to Showbiz CheatSheet.
