The couple met all the way back in 2006 when McPhee was a contestant on American Idol. They were friends for all these years and sparked relationship rumors in 2017 when David Foster’s daughter Erin shared a photo of the couple on social media and captioned it, “Excited about my new step mom.”
When asked about the rumors, McPhee told PEOPLE, “It’s great that they want to do that. I think it’s so amusing that people are amused by my love life. Here’s how I look at it: I’m not doing anything wrong, so whether people think it’s true or false, I don’t, you know, there’s nothing bad happening in my life, so people can just say whatever they want.”
Despite avoiding addressing any rumors about their relationship, the two have not shied away from public displays of affection and putting their relationship on social media.
Katharine McPhee was married once before to Nick Cokas from 2008 to 2016. David Foster has been married four times before. He was married to B. J. Cook from 1972 to 1981, Rebecca Dyer from 1982 to 1986, Linda Thompson (Caitlyn Jenner’s ex-wife and mother of Brandon and Brody Jenner) from 1991 to 2005 and Yolanda Hadid (mother of Gigi and Bella Hadid) from 2011 to 2017.
There is no word so far on when the wedding will be.
