The actress shared the first-ever selfie of her baby bump in an Instagram post on Wednesday, simply captioning the photo with two blue heart emojis along with a butterfly. In the picture, the mom-to-be is wearing a long blue coat that slouches off of her shoulder as she cradles her growing bump.
While all of the blue involved in this photo has a lot of fans convinced the singer is having a boy, she did just post a photo one day prior wearing all pink, so it looks like McPhee wants to keep people guessing.
While this is the first time Katharine has posted about her bundle of joy, back in October, sources confirmed to PEOPLE that the Smash actress and her husband, David Foster, are expecting their first child together. That same month, the couple was spotted in Montecito, California, shopping for baby items after going out to lunch.
Foster and McPhee got married in June 2019, but they first met back in 2006, when Foster mentored McPhee and other contestants on season 5 of American Idol. This will be Katharine’s first child, but Foster already has a lot of experience in this category as he is already father to daughters Sara, 39, Erin, 38, and Jordan, 34, whom he shared with his second wife Rebecca Dyer, and daughters Allison, 50, and Amy, 46, from previous relationships.
Just one day after the news of Katharine’s pregnancy broke, McPhee seemingly referenced the news on Instagram with a cheeky post.
“I just came home and opened this gift from Aperol Spritz, which for those of you who don‘t know ... is one of my favorite drinks and it reminds you of being in Capri,” the star said in a video on her Instagram Stories. “Thank you, Aperol Spritz, I won‘t be drinking this anytime soon — wink, wink — but I’m very excited.”
News of this new chapter in the couple’s life comes just a few months after they celebrated their one year anniversary. Of course, the pair marked the occasion by posting some throwback photos on Instagram, reliving the joyous day all over again.
“A year ago today I married the love of my life,” she wrote in a sweet post back in June. ”Thank you for always loving me and inspiring me in all aspects of my life. I love you. Here’s to the future! (Oh and happy anniversary to the other love of my life - this dreamy dress! 😂💕 thank you @ZacPosen!!)”
