David Foster Opens Up About 35-Year Age Gap With Wife Katharine McPhee: ‘We Get On Great Together’


David Foster is not concerned about the age gap between him and his wife, Katharine McPhee.

The 16-time Grammy winner gave a new interview about his recent sold-out performance in Las Vegas and living at home with Foster nearly a year after welcoming their first child, a son, together.

The music producer, who has worked with superstars like Michael Buble, Andrea Bocelli, Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion and many more over the years, gushed about what it was like to host his wife McPhee onstage during his performance at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas on January 21.

“When she walks out, she gets thunderous applause,” Foster, 72, told People magazine.

Of course, performing in front of a sold-out crowd and caring for a newborn at home is no small feat. Foster shared that McPhee hopes to return to showbiz full-time, but so far they have enjoyed collaborating here and there together.

“Our baby is 11 months old, so she wants to go back to work full time — and it probably won’t be with me,” Foster revealed. “I’m really grateful to him for saying, ‘OK, I’m going to grab the baby, I’m going to go out and sing some songs.’ It’s really great, he’s a star.”

Speaking about their relationship, Foster, 72, answered a question about staying married to McPhee, 37, and how the two are dealing with the public’s fascination with their 35-year age gap.

“People always refer to Kat and me with the age difference, but I’ve always said that there are so many things that can break a marriage, and the age difference is just that. one. There are so many things that can go wrong. We think it’s all right together,” he said.

In December, Foster landed in hot water after praising his wife’s post-pregnancy body and was met with backlash. McPhee, however, was quick to hit back at those who criticized her husband.

“I’m sorry but we’re not sorry. And for all of you who can’t deal with it, this may help,” McPhee wrote in a long caption. “I struggled with the weight in my 20s and 30s. I went up and down 10 times. Does it make you feel better? There’s nothing wrong with that, most people do,” she wrote.

Foster and McPhee have made it clear that despite their age, they have a lot in common. The couple got creative during the coronavirus pandemic and put on performances for their fans from home. The result is “The Kat and Dave Show” on YouTube. He said there could be more in the future with the possibility of touring together.

“We think the two of us in some kind of simplified version — just her and me, a piano and maybe a musician or two — could probably put on a really good 90-minute show,” Foster said.

The famous songwriter is also reveling in his role as the father of an 11-month-old child. He and McPhee tied the knot in 2019, making McPhee stepmother to his children Sara, 41, Erin, 39, Jordan, 35, Alison, 51, and Amy, 48. The married couple welcomed son Rennie in 2021.

“It’s great being a dad,” he told the magazine. “It’s too cliché to say ‘Now I have more time’, but it’s true: I have more time. Without any reflection on any of my other children, whom I love all the same , and as much as my son.”

In addition to his duties as a father, Foster will return to the stage in Las Vegas three more times in April.
