Katharine McPhee has made it no secret that she’s leaning all the way into her new life as David Foster’s fifth wife. She’s so invested in her new husband that she recently revealed that she’s added Foster to her last name.
Entertainment Tonight says that Katharine was introduced as “Katharine McPhee Foster” at a Vocal Star seminar recently. Mrs. McPhee Foster explained to ET that she’s not quite used to her new name, and that decided to change it because she’s traditional.
“We’ve been away since we’ve been married, so not [yet], but I love it. I just love the ring of it, so I’m enjoying it. I’m a romantic. I’ve always liked the idea that it’s still a traditional thing that exists in our society. I like the idea. I think it’s romantic and it’s a great last name.”
With Katharine McPhee Foster’s name change comes a mental correction for myself. For years, when I saw a picture of Katharine McPhee, I mentally called her Nanny McPhee. Now it looks like every time I go to say Nanny McPhee, I’ll have to stop and correct myself. That’s not Nanny McPhee – that’s Florence Foster Jenkins. Luckily there’s a whole lot of British lady movie names out there at my disposal in the event she gets married again.
But for now, it sounds like there’s no plan to split. When asked how they’re getting along since getting hitched back in June, she says:
“We just love being with each other. There’s no arguing, no drama. It’s just easy. That’s how it should be.”
Of course there’s no drama! What on earth could they fight about? He’s old and rich, she’s younger than four of his five kids. There’s a full generation between them. The only argument I could see is over the WiFi. Katharine is in her mid-30s, but David is almost 70. I could see drama happening after Katharine pulls out the barely-sticky Post-It with “How to use the internets” written across the top, and asks if they can finally change the password from W480oM29801XgbrrC7 to something just a little easier to remember.
