Age is just a number — especially in Hollywood! Over the years, many celebrities have proven that age differences don’t matter a bit when it comes to true love.
Take Katharine McPhee and David Foster for example. Us Weekly confirmed in July 2018 that the Grammy winner had proposed To break alum, who is 34 years his junior, after dating for two years. A year later, they got married in July 2019.
During their relationship, McPhee wasn’t afraid to poke fun at their apparent age difference.
“I’ll be the hottest stepmom,” Waitress alum tweeted in September 2018 regarding Foster’s many grandchildren.
However, the Broadway star also opened up about her struggles with their generation gap.
“I was very worried about what people would think,” American Idol alum said in a March 2021 episode of “Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy Podcast.” She added: “I’m not trying to skirt the obvious. We have a huge age difference.”
In the podcast, McPhee recounted their journey to love, noting that they were work acquaintances long before things turned romantic. “He actually came to my first wedding,” she said. “It was always this professional relationship, but I think in retrospect he was definitely in love with me and I was taken with him.”
Today, the couple are parents to son Rennie, who was born in February 2021. Foster is also the father of five daughters from previous relationships. Although some are older than McPhee, they seemed to welcome their stepmother with open arms. In November 2019 Sarah Foster called his father and his wife “the perfect couple”.
“I don’t think they ever had a fight,” she said Us exclusively. “I look at them, they just got it for me. It’s beautiful.”
Another great example of age-defying love? Scott Disick and Amelia Gray Hamlin.
While it is Keeping up with the Kardashians alum is no stranger to dating younger women, the source said Us April 2021 that the Talentless model and designer – who are 18 years apart in age – work well together because of the difference.
“Despite their age difference, they have more in common than people would think,” the insider said. “He sees himself as younger than he is. Amelia is really mature and acts older than her, so they get along quite well.”
The native New Yorker also offered some insights of his own.
“Everyone misunderstands that I’m looking for young girls,” the reality star explained during the show Keeping up with the Kardashians reunion in June 2021 “I don’t go out looking for young girls – I happen to be attracted to them because I look young. That’s what I tell myself.” The couple eventually called it quits in September 2021.
