Nonostante la loro differenza di età di 35 anni, il matrimonio di Katharine McPhee e David Foster non mostra alcun segno di affievolimento della passione. Sposandosi nel 2019, la coppia ha dato il benvenuto a un bambino nel febbraio 2021, per E! Notizia. (Foster ha anche altri cinque figli da precedenti relazioni.) Poco dopo la nascita del figlio, McPhee ha affrontato il controllo pubblico sulla loro differenza di età in un episodio del marzo 2021 del podcast “Informed Pregnancy” del Dr. Berlin. Spiegando che, pur comprendendo l’inclinazione a fare supposizioni sulla loro relazione dall’esterno, McPhee ha affermato con fermezza: “Le cose non sono mai esattamente come appaiono e io sono innamorato della nostra storia d’amore e questo è tutto ciò che conta”.
Katharine McPhee and David Foster love being parents
Katharine McPhee and David Foster are living proof that there's no right or wrong age when it comes to marriage and having kids. Sharing 1-year-old son, Rennie, with Foster (who's 73), the 38-year-old singer shared on the January 27 episode of "The Jennifer Hudson Show", "I would love to have another baby, but we'll see. We're not, like, in any crazy rush, but... I hope so because I love being a mom. I really love it."
Foster himself has voiced appreciation for being an "older dad" to Rennie in the past. Having five adult children — Allison, 52; Amy, 49; Sara, 41; Erin, 40; and Jordan, 36 — from prior relationships, Foster told People in October 2022 that he has had so much more downtime to spend with Rennie. "It's the standard thing of like, 'Oh, well you were so young when you had your children and you were working day and night, you never saw them,'" Foster said, sharing that he can afford to "cancel anything just to hang" with Rennie now.
Looking to Céline Dion and her late husband René Angélil as an example, Foster admitted that his May-December relationship did feel "kind of odd in the beginning." With time, however, the music producer shared that he and McPhee are "over that hump now... and hopefully people just start looking like we belong together because we feel like we do."
