Katharine McPhee, 36, has welcomed her first child, a son, with 71-year-old husband David Foster. The name of their child has not been released yet, but the couple confirmed with People that they had a healthy baby boy, saying, “Mom, Dad and son are all doing wonderfully.”

Katharine had previously hinted she was expecting a boy back in December, when she posted a picture of herself wearing a blue coat showing off her baby bump on Instagram.

The couple first met in 2006, when Foster mentored McPhee and other contestants on season 5 of American Idol. Foster produced her first single.

They were first romantically linked in May 2017 when the two were enjoying a PDA-filled dinner at Nobu in Malibu. It wasn’t until the 2018 MET Gala that the couple confirmed their romance when they walked hand-in-hand.

Shortly after the couple’s wedding in June 2019, Katharine decided to take David’s surname because she loved the “traditional” nature of taking a partner’s last name, according to Daily Mail. Foster is already father to five daughters: Allison, 50, and Amy, 47, Sara, 40, Erin, 38, and Jordan, 34, from previous relationships.
