American Idol alum Kat McPhee’s big engagement ring debut coincided with a rather bittersweet message addressing the recent loss of her father.

The singer posted a photo of her large new bauble concealing her face this weekend, alongside a message about her late father’s thoughts about her recent engagement to producer David Foster.

“It’s been a hard week,” the Waitress lead expressed. “Lots of tears but I want to thank my friends and family for all the love and support. My dad was so happy for me. My ring was the last thing I showed my dad before he passed and makes me smile when I look at this as a reminder of our last conversation.”

McPhee’s father, Daniel McPhee, passed away in mid-July, just weeks after Foster proposed to the singer during an Italian getaway.

“Now I’m ready to share with all of you what has been my sunshine amongst this painful loss,” she added this weekend in her ring selfie caption. “My love wisely said to me the other day that ‘death is the only thing that is 100 percent inevitable and the thing we are least prepared for.’ So today we’re celebrating life and not forgetting love.”

This will be the second marriage for McPhee, who was previously married to Nick Cokas, and the fifth for the award-winning musician and producer, who was once married to Linda Thompson and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid.
