Katharine McPhee engaged to David Foster.

Katharine McPhee and David Foster are headed to the altar. The former "American Idol" contestant and the Canadian musician confirmed their engagement on Tuesday.

Foster, 68, popped the question to McPhee, 34, while the two were vacationing in Italy, according to the former "Smash" star.

"He did it at the top of this mountain in Anacapri," McPhee wrote in a text exchange she shared on Instagram. "Totally dark, only stars." This will be McPhee's second marriage.

Foster has been married four times and has five children. His last marriage was to "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, Yolanda Hadid.

McPhee and Foster first crossed paths in 2006 when Foster served as a mentor during love songs week in Season 5 of "American Idol," on which McPhee was competing.

Looks like Foster has 3 or 4 daughters that are older than McPhee, one of which apparently called her "Mommyyy" on social media.

Re: Katharine McPhee engaged to David Foster.

I have no idea who the chick is, but when flipping channels some news show mentioned that Foster actually performed at the chick's previous/past wedding.

I can see why she would marry him - instant money and lifestyle upgrade while boosting her career. But what does he get out of it?
I never understood old guys who get suckered into these things. He's rich and famous-ish... tail isn't hard to get. Why marry? I would feel like a fool marrying someone half my age.

Re: Katharine McPhee engaged to David Foster.

I only know her because my wife watched Scorpion and I saw a good few episodes of the early seasons.

Re: Katharine McPhee engaged to David Foster.

She's starring in a relatively popular television series on CBS and was previously lead on a show on NBC. She's hardly a has-been.

And this thread needs pics.

Re: Katharine McPhee engaged to David Foster.

David Foster is a multi Grammy award winning record producer.

Just look at his accomplishments

https://www.grammy.com/grammys/artists/david-foster

If you don’t pay any attention to the music industry, then you may not know who he is. But, he’s had many number one hits over the last 40 plus years.

The list of A list music artists he’s produced is pages long.

If you don't know David Foster, then you don't follow music in general as he was at one time in the top 5 of music producers.

Re: Katharine McPhee engaged to David Foster.

What, a Canadian singer marrying an older record producer? That's never happened before.

That's not David Foster, that's one of the Wachowski's.

McPhee is gorgeous and can really sing. She's doing a Broadway show for the summer and will find another project after that.

Maybe she was just a big fan of Infinite Jest.

Re: Katharine McPhee engaged to David Foster.

I think McPhee just really has a thing for older guys. Her first husband was much older than she was too. Daddy issues?

Re: Katharine McPhee engaged to David Foster.

Just a few sorta known people David Foster has written and produced for.

Again, if you don't pay any attention to the music industry, then maybe you don't know him. But, he is one of the most renowned producers in the industry.
