Glowing: Katharine McPhee welcomed her son with husband David Foster in late February. And on Wednesday morning, the new mom revealed their son’s name in an excerpt from an interview she did with Hoda & Jenna on TODAY airing Friday

In the excerpt, Katharine said, when asked about her son: ‘OK, well, his name, we haven’t said anything. My husband probably will kill me for saying it, but his name is Rennie David Foster.’

The former American Idol said that they didn’t have a name in mind, even while she was in labor.

‘We picked Rennie ’cause I’d actually been in labor for a while. We didn’t have a name picked out.’

Explaining: ‘We had a couple names, but my husband was on a text chain with his sisters and one of his sisters suggested an old family name. It was his great-grandfather’s name, his great-uncle’s name, so it has a long history in his family.’

On December 16, 2020, Katharine officially confirmed her pregnancy, after months of speculation and sightings of the star with a baby bump.

During the Wednesday post, Katharine stunned in a blue coat, with her hand placed on her bump.

She snapped the glamorous image in her kitchen area of her home, rocking wavy locks and smokey eye makeup with mauve hued lipstick.

She added two blue heart emojis and a butterfly emoji as the caption.

The image was the first time Katharine has publicly commented about her pregnancy, although in October she cheekily hinted at it when talking about an alcoholic themed gift that arrived in the mail. 

She said: I just came home and opened this gift from Aperol Spritz… it’s one of my favorite drinks and it reminds you of being in Capri.’

‘I won’t be drinking this anytime soon, wink, wink. But I’m very excited. Who’s coming over for an Italian inspired cocktail?’

The gift contained the alcoholic beverage as well as sparkling water and two wine glasses.

She made the subtle comment after she was seen stepping out with what appeared to be a growing baby bump during a walk in Montecito, California. 

Katharine and David tied the knot on June 28, 2019 at the Armenian Church of St Yeghiche in South Kensington, London.

This is Katharine’s first child and their first together; he has five daughters and has been married five times total: BJ Cook, Rebecca Dyer, Linda Thompson, Yolanda Hadid and Katharine.
