While she is not the first American Idol alum to achieve an international level of success, she is arguably one of the most successful from the competitive reality television series. To learn more about the Hollywood beauty, keep reading below.

Who is Katharine McPhee and How Old is She?

Katharine Hope McPhee was born in Los Angeles, California on the 25th of March, 1984, to Peisha and Daniel McPhee. With her father being a television producer and her mother a vocal coach, it almost seems that Katharine was destined to be a singer and actress. Her mother, Peisha, recognized Katharine’s musical abilities early and decided to train her.

For her education, Katharine attended Notre Dame High School where she performed in several musicals and school plays. After graduating from high school in 2002, she attended Boston Conservatory for three semesters as a major in Musical Theatre. However, she eventually dropped out of college and returned to Los Angeles to audition for television pilots. She then landed a role in You Are Here, a soap opera pilot on MTV; sadly, the pilot was not picked up.

In 2005, she starred as Annie Oakley in a Cabrillo Music Theatre production of Annie Get Your Gun. As a result of her outstanding performance, she was nominated for a Los Angeles Stage Ovation Award in the category of “Lead Actress in a Musical”. That same year, she auditioned for American Idol after being persuaded by her parents and Nick Cokas, her boyfriend at the time. She was successful in her audition and made it all the way to finals, finishing in second place with Taylor Hicks winning the grand prize and the number one spot.

Katharine McPhee has revealed that she struggled with eating disorders while growing up. She began starving herself and exercising compulsively at the age of thirteen; by the age of seventeen, she was bulimic. By the time she went off to college, she gained weight as a result of binge eating. After struggling with her weight and eating habits for seven years, she finally went to a three-month rehabilitation program after passing her American Idol audition. As a result, she lost 14kg during her run on the singing contest.

Details of Her Net Worth

Throughout the course of her career, Katharine McPhee has garnered a total net worth of $8 Million. Considering her successful music and acting career, it is not surprising to hear just how much she has made. Bearing in mind the fact that she’s still pretty active in the entertainment industry today, that amount is expected to go up in the future.

While Katharine McPhee is not married at the moment, she is also not single either. The American actress is currently engaged to the well-known and well-respected music producer – David Foster. Their engagement, which was announced in June 2018, immediately gained headlines due to the fact that David is almost twice her age. However, despite the international interest in their relationship, the couple remains happy and unbothered as they prepare for their wedding.

The two have been said to be the perfect fit for each other and based on available reports, it seems even their family and friends agree.

Prior to her relationship with David, she was with Elyes Gabel, who was her co-star on Scorpion. The two were together for two years before calling it quits in 2016.
