DETROIT, Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Soul music icon Aretha Franklin, 69, says she plans to marry William Wilkerson this summer, possibly aboard a yacht in Miami Beach.

"We're looking at June or July for our date and no, I'm not pregnant, LOL!" Franklin said in a statement issued to People.com Monday.

"Ms. Franklin is considering Donna Karan, Valentino and the queen of wedding dresses, Vera Wang, to design her gown," her publicist said.

No other details regarding the couple's engagement or how long they have been together were immediately reported.

This will be the third marriage for Franklin. She has four children from previous relationships.
