McPhee's representative, Leslie Sloan, also confirmed the news to USA Today, saying the couple welcomed a baby boy. However, she did not provide further details. 

In October, sources told People that Foster and McPhee were expecting a child. In that period, the couple was caught on camera having lunch and shopping for baby supplies in Montecito, California.

McPhee confirmed her pregnancy on social media when she shared pictures that showed her cradling her baby bump while clad in a long powder-blue coat. 

Besides her dress color, McPhee's caption to the post also hinted at her baby's gender with a butterfly emoji placed between two blue heart emojis.

McPhee and Foster tied the knot in June 2019, thirteen years after they first met at the 2006 edition of "American Idol." In that edition, Foster mentored McPhee and other contestants. 

Foster is already a father of five daughters from a previous marriage and relationship. He shares Sara, 40, Erin, 38, and Jordan, 34, with his second wife, Rebecca Dyer.

After confirming her baby's gender, McPhee previously revealed that she would worry about the different things she would have to teach him versus the things she would be thinking about if she was having a girl. 

However, she added that it is refreshing for her because she believes she does not need to think about societal stereotypes as men have different issues and things to worry about.
