Neil Diamond to Marry For Third Time

Middle-aged divorcees, have I got some bad news for you. The amazing Neil Diamond is off the market!
The singer tweeted on Wednesday that he is getting married for the third time. He posted this Tweet: "Good news coming from sunny LA and you’re the first I want to tell. Katie & I just got engaged and I hope you wish us well. Neil." Neil, we totally wish you well. A side note: I have attended at least 2,500 concerts in my life and I have seen Neil twice. They were easily some of my favorite concerts…ever.
Diamond, 70, debuted his blonde fiancée by uploading a photo of her to his Twitter account, writing: "I'd like you to meet Katie. I'm lovestruck. I took this photo in London last month."
The singer was previously married to his high school sweetheart, teacher Jayne "Posey" Posner. They split in 1969 after six years of marriage. Diamond went on to wed second wife Marcia Murphey later that year. They divorced in 1995.
Diamond has two children from each marriage.
Congrats to Neil and Katie!
