When it comes to celebrity couples, some are more bizarre and stranger than others. Some have funny coincidences and some seem like matches made in heaven. For famed music composer and producer David Foster and singer Katharine McPhee, it seems this couple has been in the making for well over a decade.
In fact, Foster worked with a budding singer McPhee when they first met when she appeared on season 5 of American Idol.
In 2008, the then 58-year-old Foster actually played the piano at the then 24-year old McPhee’s first wedding.
McPhee and her husband split in 2016. Foster and wife, Yolanda Hadid, who is the mother of models Gigi and Bella, separated in 2017 and their divorce was just recently finalized.
Rumblings of a relationship that was much more than mentor/mentee started when Foster and McPhee were seen in Malibu together during the spring of last year.
They’ve been spotted in Beverly Hills, Paris, and New York together since then.
McPhee has always spoken very highly of Foster and feels very protective of their relationship, despite many people questioning their over 30+ year age gap.
Foster has a daughter that is actually a year older than McPhee.
Despite all of the hoopla surrounding how long they’ve known each other, them both being married during the majority of that time and how young she was when they first met, it seems they are ready to take a giant leap together.
On July 3rd, it was announced that the two of them are now engaged to be married.
Foster has been married four times, McPhee has been married once.
Despite how some may feel about this future union, it looks like it will be going off quite seamlessly after the two have been in each other’s orbits for so long.
