Something more to sing about. American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee is engaged to producer David Foster. The couple’s rep confirmed the news to TMZ on Tuesday, July 3.

The pair is currently traveling the world, landing at the moment in Capri, Italy. According to the outlet, McPhee was boasting about her new sparkler to friends and family members via FaceTime on the island.

After the news broke, McPhee shared her proposal story via a screen shot of a text exchange with Just Jared founder Jared Eng. “He did it at the top of this mountain in Anacapri,” she recalled. “Totally dark only stars. Thankfully he didn’t push me off the cliff. He said it was one or the other. And in the end he spared me.”

Foster has already nailed down the role of Instagram husband, at least according to McPhee’s social media feed. The actress posted a photo of herself lounging on their boat this weekend during their Mediterranean getaway.

“If only you saw the first 50+ pics it took to get to these two,” she joked, while crediting her future husband as the photographer.

This will be the second marriage for McPhee, who was previously with Nick Cokas from 2008. They finalized their split in 2016. This is the fifth marriage for Foster, whose ex-wives include Yolanda Hadid of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Linda Thompson, mother of Brody and Brandon Jenner.
