by at . Comments

Barbara Walters managed to divert attention away from Elisabeth Hasselbeck's new baby on The View this morning.

The den mother on the talk show posted a large photo of Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell on the screen and then made the following statement:

Paul and Nancy

"See, that lovely, young, conservative, attractive-looking woman with Paul McCartney? Well, I love her very much. She's my cousin."

As reported by People, Walters added that she thinks the romance between the pair is "very nice."

From there, the host provided more details about Shevell:

"She's my second cousin. Her mother, who died, was my first cousin. And I have been very close to this young woman. ... She's separated from her husband, who's a nice man. The marriage wasn't going well, and they're separated."

In closing, Babs shot down rumors that stated Shevell knew Linda McCartney and Heather Mills. She also said she was the great aunt of Chelsy Davy.

Just kidding.
