Katharine McPhee is a mother-to-be!
The 36-year-old actress, star of the American TV series "Smash" and husband David Foster are expecting the birth of their first child, as confirmed by sources close to the star couple.
McPhee and Foster were spotted Tuesday in Montecito, California eating lunch and buying baby gifts together.
The expectant mother was dressed in gray leggings, a black top and a baseball cap, and she carried her dog in a bag in front of her.
McPhee, 36, and Foster, 70, tied the knot in June 2019 after first meeting in 2006 when he mentored her and other members on American Idol's fifth season.
Foster is already the father of daughters Sarah, 39, Erin, 38, and Jordan, 34, whom he shared with second wife Rebecca Dyer and daughters Allison, 50, and Amy, 46, from a previous relationship.
Erin has previously said that McPhee has made a positive contribution to their lives - and they sometimes jokingly refer to her as "Mommy!"
“Interestingly, the age difference played a positive role,” Erin said. “Our dad comes from a generation where women are more passive. He is also passive about his feelings. Catherine really pushed him to open. We could fight, and then Kat said, “No, you have to accept this; on the phone, call your daughter back, it's very important. She makes him be more emotional and vulnerable."
Foster added that he believes his wife has fallen into "this" family of five adult daughters. “I think she's really good at this,” he said. “And so are they. Because they can be terrible. Of course, I find it easier to get along with them. This is also not a fleeting phenomenon. Several years have passed".
The couple were married on June 28, 2019, in front of family and friends in London at St Egiche Church in South Kensington. The event was attended by about 150 guests, including all of Foster's children.
On their wedding anniversary, the couple originally planned to return to London to celebrate, but this trip was canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
“I wanted to go back to London because we got married there, but I don't think that will happen anytime soon,” McPhee said in May. "So I have friends and family that we can visit and celebrate, and they are in a safe, self-contained area where everyone is quarantined."
