Katharine McPhee is a mother!
The American Idol alum gave birth to her first child with husband David Foster. A representative of the couple told People, “Katharine McPhee and David Foster have welcomed a healthy baby boy. Mom, Dad and son are all doing wonderfully.”
The singer revealed that she was having a son during an interview on the podcast, Women on Top.
She said, “Now that I am having a boy, there are different things I need to worry about to teach him, versus the things I would be thinking about with a girl…. I think men have different issues and different things to worry about.”
Unlike Katharine, this is David’s sixth child. He’s also a father to Erin, Amy, Sara, Allison Jones, and Jordan.
The 36-year-old Smash alum confirmed her pregnancy in early October with the 71-year-old music producer. The Broadway star has always wanted to be a mother and have a child with David. They’ve been busy with work but last year they were able to spend more time together because of the pandemic.
Katharine confirmed her pregnancy through an Instagram video. She received gifts from Aperol Sprits and said, “I won’t be drinking this for a while. Wink, wink. But I’m so excited.”
The couple tied the knot in June 2019 at the church of St. Yeghiche in London in a traditional yet romantic ceremony. The bride wore a classic Zac Posen white gown for the wedding. Months after their marriage, they appeared on Today to talk about their romance.
Katharine revealed, “We met on American Idol when I was a contestant and he was a mentor with Andrea Bocelli. I have always just admired him and loved him and he’s always been so great to people around him. He can be intimidating when he really needs to be for his work, but he’s really lovely.”
On the other hand, David confessed that it was Katharine’s singing that really caught his attention. He said, “I mean where do I start? The inner beauty, the outer beauty, and we have been friends for 14 years, and it was just kind of a natural coming together.”
Congratulations to Katharine and David on their first child together.
