Katharine McPhee Foster has revealed why she took her husband, David Foster’s surname after they tied the knot – as she’s a fan of being ‘traditional’.
The singer and actor, 35, now goes by the name of Katharine Foster or Katharine McPhee Foster after getting married in June, and revealed the reasons behind her name change.
She told Entertainment Tonight: ‘I’m a romantic. I’ve always liked the idea that it’s still a traditional thing that exists in our society.
‘I like the idea. I think it’s romantic and it’s a great last name. We’ve been away since we’ve been married, so [I haven’t got used to it yet], but I love it. I just love the ring of it, so I’m enjoying it.’
She is said to be keen to have children with David, 69, and has the blessing of two of his five daughters, Sara, 38, and Erin, 37, with a source telling Us Weekly: ‘Sara and Erin fully expect her to have a child and fully support it.’
Sara has previously spoken highly of Katharine, gushing: ‘She’s great. She’s a great addition. You know I’ve learned to not rule anything out [about kids]. I think anything is possible at this point. Who knows?
‘She’s wonderful. The other day she was like, “I got you a facial,” and like that’s so cool. My dad loves love and my dad loves commitment.
‘My dad’s always been married. He’s never been single really. He’s a real commitment, marriage kind of guy and I’m happy for him.’
Katharine revealed that the best part about her marriage is that everything is ‘easy’ and that the couple have a very relaxed relationship.
She told Entertainment Tonight: ‘We just love being with each other. There’s no arguing, no drama. It’s just easy. That’s how it should be.’
