Beautiful American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee is reportedly now engaged to actor Nick Cokas.
The 23-year-old McPhee has been showing off her ring as of late and, according to People, she’s just thrilled with her engagement. The cute couple have been dating for a little over a year. They met in 2005 while performing in a L.A. theatre production.
After Coka took her to San Francisco for the Idol audition, the relationship developed. The 42-year-old Cokas is 19 years her senior, but they seem to be a very happy couple.
To me, age doesn’t matter. I’m actually much older than my husband and we are extremely happy. As long as you love and respect each other, differences in age, race, religion and everything else take a back seat.
Congrats to Katharine and Nick! I look forward to hearing about their wedding planning!
