On February 24, Us Weekly reported that the former "American Idol" contestant and her renowned musician husband, David Foster, had welcomed their first child.
A rep for McPhee confirmed that she and Foster are the proud parents of a baby boy. A source also said everything went smoothly. Both the mother and child are in good health.

Meanwhile, a source told E! News that McPhee is extremely thrilled to have welcomed her newest family member with Foster. According to the source, the couple and their son are doing well.
McPhee previously revealed that she initially had reservations about dating Foster.

Another source said that McPhee has managed to balance her work and growing family successfully. The source said that she's loving it as a mother and will soon promote her new show on Netflix.
In a March 1 interview with Dr. Berlin's Informed Pregnancy Podcast, McPhee emphasized her worry that her recent pregnancy would result in a relapse of her eating disorder.
Previously, the star suffered from bulimia and entered an intensive treatment program in October 2005. Her maternity journey has given McPhee such a misconception about how she looks.
The news broke in October 2020 that McPhee and the Grammy Awards winner, who exchanged their wedding vows in June 2019, were expecting their first baby.
McPhee previously revealed that she initially had reservations about dating Foster. She said that the 35-year age difference was a concern, but it was more about their public image rather than their age.
McPhee emphasized that she fully understood the initial judgment. But she pointed out that things don't always match up with reality, and that's why their love story is so touching for her.
