Katherine McPhee and David Foster are ENGAGED!
It’s been just over a year since rumors surfaced that the two were an item. Katherine and David initially denied they were a couple and claimed to be “just friends.”
However, their romance was officially confirmed when they were spotted getting frisky during a night out in Los Angeles. Pictures don’t lie people.
Back in May, Katherine and David made their first public appearance together at the MET Gala in New York City.
So, how did David pop the question?
It turns out on a mountain in Anacapri, Italy. Katherine dished all the details to her friend Jared from JustJared.com. The former American Idol star made her text exchange with Jared public which basically blew the lid off her and David’s happy news.
Katharine and David are currently vacationing in Italy and Katharine has been documenting their trip on social media.
While Katharine isn’t showing off her engagement ring just yet you can see it in the photo below!
A source close to the couple calls their union “cute” and says they are really “sweet together.” Adding the age difference between 68-year-old David and 34-year-old Katharine works for them despite seeming odd to many.
Unlike David’s past relationships, Katharine already has the seal of approval from David’s two oldest daughters, Sara and Erin Foster.
“We approve of whoever is going to be good to my dad; at the end of the day and we’re very honest about it,” Sara told Us Weekly in 2017. “If we ever thought that anyone was in something for the wrong reasons, we would be very vocal about it. We just want someone that’s going to treat him well and that cares about him, and I think he’s with someone right now that really does.”
This will be Katharine’s second marriage and David’s fifth. Katharine was previously married to the also much older Nick Cokas from 2008 to 2016. Meanwhile, David was most infamously married to former RHOBH star Yolanda Hadid, from 2011-2017, and Linda Thompson, who’s the mother of Brody and Brandon Jenner, from 1991-2005. David was also married to singer B.J. Cook from 1972 to 1981 and Rebecca Dyer from 1982 to 1986.
Congrats to the happy couple! Hopefully, this marriage sticks for the both of them!
