Neil Diamond has announced plans to wed his girlfriend RACHEL FARLEY, after a decade of dating.

AMERICA singer Diamond, 64, met Farley while he was on tour in Australia 10 years ago and they've been inseparable ever since.

And now the veteran performer admits he's ready to make Farley his third wife.

He says, "It's going to be an off-the-cuff kind of thing: 'Come on, honey, let's get hitched. Just you and me and a witness."
