Katharine McPhee will celebrate her two-year wedding anniversary with husband David Foster in June, but before the couple tied the knot, the actress had some doubts.
The main hurdle McPhee, 36, said she had to overcome was her big age gap with the Grammy winner, 71. There are 35 years between them.
The singer admitted that she was nervous about what people would say.
“We all have the ability to label things and look at something by the way it looks or at face value and make a judgment,” she said on Monday’s episode of Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy Podcast. “So, at first, I totally understand the judgment, but things are never as they seem, things are never exactly as they seem and I am in love with our love story and that is all that matters.”

The couple recently welcomed their first child together, a boy. Foster has five other adult daughters from previous marriages.
“We had a real journey and I had a real process,” McPhee said of their relationship, which began as a friendship.
The couple first met in 2006 when McPhee was participating in the fifth season of “American Idol” and Foster was a mentor on the singing competition series.

The “The Waitress” star explained about their age difference: “It took me a while to turn around and want to have a real, serious relationship because I was so worried about what people would think.”
“The perception of what people are trying to create, especially with women, is always the woman’s fault,” he added.
“She’s the woman who wants to be with the older man because he has money and he’s been successful and she wants this, that,” McPhee reflected. “I mean, our history has been the opposite.”
