hope everyone’s properly digested their holiday meals, cuz this is the type of story that triggers real-life puke-face emoji! Last year, 72-year-old David Foster implanted his geriatric seed into fifth wife Katharine McPhee, 37, who gave birth to a son, Rennie David Foster, in February 2021. Cut to this week, when David posted a picture of Katharine in a bikini on Instagram. His caption? “what baby!” Translation: “Look at how fit my fifth wife is! Check out her flat stomach! Can you believe she gave birth earlier this year?” Sigh. I hope his $150 million net worth is worth it, Kat.
Here’s the post:
David immediately got shit for his caption in the comments. One person described it as “uncomfortable antiquated compliments,” another said it was a “cringe worthy post.” Another commenter wrote: “Yep let’s make other women feel like crap cuz their baby body doesn’t look like that.”
And then there’s the fact that Katharine has struggled with an eating disorder in the past. A week after she had the baby she went on Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy Podcast and admitted that she feared the pregnancy would trigger her eating issues, via USA Today:
“I was really ravenous the first trimester,” she said. “The food hunger would come on so quickly and in your brain your like ‘Is this the eating disorder version of me or is this actually my body?'”
She also struggled with a distortion of the way she looked, so she sought help from the same psychiatrist she worked with before “American Idol.”
Her therapist told her that “it’s really common for women who have struggled with eating disorders in the past to have almost like a relapse in some sense when they enter pregnancy.”
What’s worse is he probably picked up some tricks from his fourth ex-wife, Reigning Queen of Disordered Eating and Body-Shaming, Yolanda Hadid:
Godspeed, Kat McPhee. A reminder that the average life expectancy for Canadian men is 79.9. So close, girl!
