Gregg Allman revealed in an interview on CNN last night that he is now engaged to a 24-year-old woman named Shannon. Allman confirmed the engagement in an interview with Piers Morgan, who questioned the Allman Brothers Band musician about the relationship on camera.

When asked what his fiancée thought of becoming his seventh wife, Allman replied, "That's not what she's becoming. She's becoming wife Number One. I don't have a wife, I haven't had one for years." Allman later told Morgan that "this time, I am really in love," and said that he was only in love with two of his previous wives, though "they didn't reciprocate."
