David Foster, 68, and Katharine McPhee, 34, recently announced their engagement while on vacation in Italy, and one of his four ex-wives has sounded off on what she thinks of it. Linda Thompson, who was also married to Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner) is the mother of Brody Jenner and Brandon Jenner and released a 2016 tell-all about her marriages, has said that she wishes them well, but has one concern.
“I think the only thing that’s a real deterrent, I think, is the age difference,” she told US Weekly. “But I think life doesn’t have any guarantees anyway. If you find someone you love, go for it, you know? [McPhee is] a lovely person. She’s beautiful and she’s talented, and they have that musicality in common, so that goes a long way.” David produced Katharine's first single when she was in her early twenties and fresh off of American Idol.
“Our friends think he’s hot and when he became single for the first time in our lives when I was about 23, he was like, ‘So obviously I’m going to start dating. My rule is that I’m not going to date anyone younger than my oldest daughter,’"Erin Foster, who is a year older than Katharine and has called her "Mommy" on social media, told Page Six back in 2016, after he divorced The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Yolanda Hadid. "Then after a year he was like, ‘OK, there’s a new rule. I’m not going to date anyone younger than my youngest daughter,” Erin cracked." She and sister Sara Foster said in the interview that they were sure his fourth marriage to Yolanda would not be his last marriage.
