Singer-actress Katharine McPhee and her music producer fiancé, David Foster, are preparing for their big day.
According to an Us Weekly exclusive, published on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2019, the celeb couple reportedly won’t be following the lead of actress Priyanka Chopra and singer Nick Jonas’ nuptials when it comes to planning their own wedding.
“David and Katharine are leaning toward a small wedding,” a source cited by the magazine claimed. Noting that “they haven’t done any major planning yet, or even set a date,” the insider suggested that their wedding may take place in either the “summer or fall” of 2019, after McPhee ends her current run in the West End production of Waitress in London.
According to a second source, the duo are hoping for “a very small wedding in London for about 30 people. They both want to make it a very private, small event.”
As Nicki Swift previously reported, McPhee, 34, and Foster, 69, got engaged in early July 2018. Following months of dating rumors, they had confirmed their relationship not long before at the Met Gala in May. “Totally dark stars,” the American Idol alum later described the proposal on social media. Foster had popped the question on top of a mountain in Italy’s Anacapri during their vacation to the island of Capri. “Thankfully he didn’t push me off the cliff,” she jokingly added. “He said it was one or the other. And in the end he spared me.”
Of the heightened media attention surrounding their engagement news, Foster later told Access Live, “We’re all great, we’re all happy. And you know, for some reason, the two of us, one plus one makes four instead of two. So it seems like it’s interesting news to people, so we’re just gonna roll with it.” Readers may remember that the music icon was previously married to Real Housewives star Yolanda Hadid. Foster and McPhee’s marriage will mark his fifth and her second.
For her part, the former Smash star made headlines over the weekend for clapping back at an online troll who criticized her relationship. On Sunday, Jan. 27, McPhee had tweeted out to her fans, “Picking your bridal party is like a real life Myspace top 8.” According to the Comments by Celebs Instagram account, the social media user in question later weighed in on the matter, writing, “Except MySpace lasted longer than this marriage ever will.” At this, the “Over It” singer hit back with, “I’m assuming it also lasted longer than any relationship you ever had with a hairdresser?”
