A ticket to Hollywood is nothing compared to marrying the man of your dreams! Former American Idol star Katharine McPhee confirmed her engagement to music mogul David Foster earlier today. The pair have been dating for a little over a year and have decided to take their relationship to the next level. Over this passed weekend, Foster popped the question while the couple was on vacation in Capri, Italy. TMZ reports that McPhee announced the engagement to her family via FaceTime, from overseas.

Many are fascinated by the couple’s age difference with Foster being 68 and McPhee being 34, but this is not the first older gentleman McPhee will have married. McPhee’s first husband, Nick Cokas, was 19 years her senior. I love consistency! For Foster this will be his fifth wife, with the first four being B.J. Cook, Rebecca Dyer, Linda Thompson, and Yolanda Hadid. There is something to be said about a man with that much faith in love.

McPhee took to Twitter to make a cheeky announcement of the engagement.


Cheers to the happy couple, and let’s hope their marriage is as sweet as the music they make!
