Love that breaks stigmas

The two first met in 2006, during the fifth season of American Idol, in which McPhee was one of the contestants, and Foster was a mentor. The former Smash star comments:

She didn’t catch my eye on the first day because I was so busy trying to do my job. But the reality is that in the last 12 years I’ve always had a connection with her.


What started as a friendship has blossomed into a romance, which neither of them expected to happen. Today, the lovebirds are focusing more on what they have in common rather than their differences. McPhee says that despite the age gap, they understand and respect each other, stating:

It doesn’t make sense to a lot of people, but it does to us.
