Katharine McPhee’s Father Passes Away Weeks After Her Engagement: “My Heart Will Never Be The Same”

Katharine McPhee has been filled with joy after her engagement to David Foster. Sadly her happiness has been turned into heartbreak because her father, Daniel McPhee, has passed away. According to People, Katharine said, “He was so kind and caring and made sure we knew how much he loved us. Not sure my heart will ever be the same.” Katharine announced the sad news on social media. She wrote, “I can’t believe I’m even writing this. But it is with heavy heart that I share that my sweet sweet Papa left this earth yesterday morning. We as a family are completely heartbroken and devastated. He was my biggest fan, my biggest champion, always telling me to ‘Give em hell kid!'”

Katharine is currently starring in the musical Waitress, on Broadway, in New York City. She shared, “I’m so sad he missed my [Broadway] debut. But when I return to the stage next week I hope he can watch it in peace and from up above. Thank you to all my friends who’ve been so loving and supportive these last 48 hours. I love you Papa. I already miss you so much. This hurts.”

Just days before she shared the news of her father’s death, she had tweeted that she would miss a weekend of shows in order to fly to Los Angeles for a family emergency. She wrote, “It breaks my heart to disappoint anyone. Sending all my love.”

Katharine’s fiancé is her support system. The happy couple first went public at the Met Gala, and then a few months later he proposed while they were vacationing in Italy.

RIP to Katharine’s father, sending her lots of love and prayers. It’s always hard to lose a loved one. He will be with her on stage in spirit to watch over her. I’m glad she has her fiancé, David, to lean on for support. I have to say, I think they are a cute couple. Yeah they have a big age gap, but that doesn’t matter. Age is just a number, and love is love.
