Katharine McPhee And David Foster Reveal What It’s Like To Have A Relationship With 34-Year Age Gap
After dating for a year, Katharine McPhee and David Foster have decided that the 34-year age difference is not a barrier to their love, and announced that they are engaged.
In July, the couple confirmed that the musician popped the question when they were holidaying in Anacapri, Italy.
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.
What do people think about their relationship?
There's something entirely sweet, romantic and genuine about this couple. Love @katharinemcgee & David together. And it's wonderful that his children can love her and joke about it too.— Deelaney31 (@Deelaney31) September 12, 2018
I absolutely believe that she loves him and he probably even loves her, but good grief woman open your eyes. Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. For whatever reason this is someone who is not successful at being married. I just want to shake her (and him).— Lizzy3433 (@Lizzy3433) September 12, 2018
She's bearding him as did Yolanda and Linda— 🌹Vanessa 💄💅🏼🍹 (@Spirited_Enigma) September 12, 2018
She better not sign a prenup— ------ (@hellorhighaf) September 12, 2018
Now, the 68-year-old Foster is planning his fifth marriage, whereas for the 34-year-old McPhee it will be the second chance at having the 'happyly ever after'. But this time, the couple is banking on forever.
