Date May 20, 2019 13:13

After a year of dating, the American Idol contestant Katharine McPhee and her on-screen mentor David Foster made their relationship official, as they are engaged now.

The two apparently met on the show and seemingly liked each other to the moon and back. Foster proposed to McPhee at the top of this mountain in Anacapri with the sparkling stars above them. Well, isn't it romantic?

Love knows no age

Katharine McPhee attended the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s Hot Pink Party with David Foster ahead of their foreseeable wedding a couple of days ago.

Before the married-couple-to-be performed at the event, the Waitress star didn't miss a chance to gush over her other half. Talking to PEOPLE, McPhee said:

We’re so happy and proud of each other. I believe in love.

However, Katharine has a bit of advice for those who are currently single but dream of finding true love:

It’s going to happen when you’re not looking for it. It’s going to be the person that’s right under your nose, or it’s going to be somebody you’ve known for a long time, or it’s going to happen when you least expect it. It really is cliché but it’s cliché for a reason — because it’s true! It certainly happened for me that way.

35-year-old Katharine McPhee and 69-year-old David Foster are often spotted having affectionate PDAs in public, proving their strong feelings once again.

Real-life mentor

Even though David Foster was a mentor on American Idol, he remained so for his sweetheart, Katharine. Two weeks after the engagement announcement, the Waitress star's father sadly passed away. 

McPhee told fans that her dad had been her biggest fan. She had wanted him to witness her Broadway debut, but fate had other plans. Thus, having David by her side should have helped her to deal with unexpected pain.

David Foster was married four times, whereas Katharina McPhee — just once. So, let's hope, this union will last till the end.
