Katharine McPhee and David Foster have one of the most beautiful love stories in Hollywood. They met on American Idol in 2006 and developed a friendship before things turned romantic once they were both single. After getting married in 2019, the lovebirds expanded their family with the birth of their son, Rennie.

Recently, Katharine, 39, revealed that “therapy” is the key to her successful marriage with David, 74. “I really feel like you can talk through most everything, but you have to have the language, the vocabulary to do that,” she told E!
