After the news of her engagement broke, McPhee used Twitter to address the reports with a single emoji and an Ariana Grande GIF.

Shortly after the 34-year-old McPhee shared the news that she and Foster got engaged while on a romantic trip in Capri, Italy, the 68-year-old musician confirmed the news on his Instagram with caption, "Yup!" "Totally dark, only stars", the Terrified singer said. "He said it was one or the other and in the end he spared me".


"Summer Daze part 2", Foster captioned a shot of himself lounging in a white button-down shirt, khaki shorts and sunglasses, giving photo credit to his new fiancée.

McPhee's wordy Instagram post is her first confirmation of her engagement to Foster. Not missing a chance to rib her dad, Sara, 37, also got in on the joke, commenting, "Out of the country". They first met in 2006 during a taping of American Idol, where McPhee placed second during a record-setting season finale that was seen by 31 million viewers in the US alone.


Foster and McPhee would soon appear together at a wedding reception, but this time as husband and wife. "We just want someone that's going to treat him well and that cares about him, and I think he's with someone right now that really does".

It's been just over a year since rumors surfaced that the two were an item.


The couple have always been rumored to be in a romance, but it was only last month that they confirmed that they are together.
