That didn’t take long! Hours after Katharine McPhee tied the knot with David Foster, the American Idol alum made things social media official by taking his last name on Twitter and Instagram.
“Introducing Katharine Foster,” the Waitress actress, 35, tweeted on Saturday, June 29, and also went from “Katharine McPhee” to “Katharine Foster” on Instagram that same day. And it wasn’t just for show — Katharine legally took David’s last name after the pair tied the knot in London on Friday, June 28.
McPhee says there's 'probably' another Golden Knights trade coming
There's been no shortage of activity from the Vegas Golden Knights in the early stages of the 2019 offseason. The cap-strapped club already inked William Karlsson to an eight-year contract extension and shipped Erik Haula to the Carolina Hurricanes, but president of hockey operations George McPhee expects more transactions in the coming days. "We have a little more work to do," McPhee told The Athletic's Jesse Granger on Thursday. "We'll see where things go in the next few days. We made a move yesterday and there's probably another one coming." The Golden Knights face arguably the most undesirable salary cap situation of any team this summer.
Katharine “looked so pretty” in a strapless, custom Zac Posen gown as she wed the music producer, 69, at the Church of Saint Yeghiche, a source told Us Weekly. The spouses said their vows in front of an estimated 100 friends and family including David’s daughters Sara and Erin Foster.
Prior to the ceremony, the Smash alum took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message to her new husband. “Exactly 13 years ago today my very first single, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, was released right after Idol. Today… I’m marrying the man who produced it,” Katharine wrote alongside a video of her singing the tune while the Grammy winner played the piano. “Life is full of beautiful coincidences, isn’t it? Thank you for taking me over the rainbow, David.”
