Sir Paul McCartney helped a fan propose to his longtime girlfriend as he returned to the stage in New York over the weekend (05-06Jul14).

The Beatles legend, who took two months out from his world tour to recuperate from a viral infection in May (14), had double the reason to smile as he resumed his trek in Albany on Saturday (05Jul14), after spotting a pair of fans holding up signs which read, "He won't marry me 'til he meets you" and "I've got the ring and I'm 64."

MCCartney invited the devotees, identified as John Dann and Claudia Rogers, up on stage and serenaded them, while Dann proposed to his partner.
