A big congrats is in order for the stunning singer/actress Katherine McPhee and Grammy-winning producer/composer David Foster.

She's 34 and he's 68, but the "May-December" couple is madly in love and are ready to meet at the altar. This will be Foster's fifth marriage (a charm?) and McPhee's second, proving that neither of the two have given up on the idea of growing old (or in his case, older) with someone special.

The happy couple img.huffingtonpost.com

According to People, Foster romantically popped the question when they were on vacation in Capri, Italy. "He did it at the top of this mountain in Anacapri. Totally dark, only stars," McPhee shared. Sounds special. Granted, Foster has had practice.

While rumors were swirling that McPhee and Foster were an item for months, they made their big first public appearance together as an official couple at the Met Gala in Manhattan recently. That said, they've known one another for years – since 2006 when McPhee became a household name thanks to her stint on American Idol. Was the spark ignited then or did they only realize their attraction years later? Foster's most current ex, Yolanda (mom of Gigi and Bella Hadid) surely doesn't want to know.

When and where the marriage will take place hasn't yet been reported, but like most celebs, we probably won't know 'till after the fact. Until then, we can wait for pics of what is sure to be a ginormous diamond ring to surface. Foster is no slouch and he has plenty in the bank for something "blingy."

How many carats? images.tmz.com

Now McPhee can spend time picking out the perfect dress to say "yes" to and Foster can count all his wives on one hand. All kidding aside, we wish them both tons of happiness, lots of love, and a long future together as husband and wife.

Yolanda Foster Files Divorce

Yolanda Foster has officially filed the divorce papers to pull the plug on her marriage to David Foster.

The couple announced their split in December, with reports circling that it was the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star who actually initiated the separation.

RHOBH—Yolanda Goes Makeup-Free, MAKEUP-FREE? How Very Dare She?!!

Yolanda's battle with Lyme Disease and her well documented inability to function (she can't drive, read etc) has been blamed for putting so much stress on their relationship that the marriage could not survive.

Yolanda has said;

"We had a beautiful love story that I will treasure forever. Chronic, long-term illness is extremely challenging. Not only for the sick but also for the caregiver. It for sure changed the dynamic of our relationship."

The couple had been together for nine years and married for four—they had only been married for a year when Yolanda was diagnosed in 2012, and the strain of her constant treatments (as documented by her numerous IV selfies) and the level of support she requires are apparently what made the marriage fall apart.

The documents, filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday cite irreconcilable differences, which was to be expected. What is interesting is that the all important separation date is listed as 11/18/15 which just about makes it a four year marriage (their wedding was on 11/11/11). She is asking for spousal support as well as requesting that Foster pay her attorney's fees.

The reason the separation date is relevant is that under California law, four years of marriage entitles her to two years of alimony IF there were no prenup. Ah but there is a prenup I hear you say, so what's the diff?

The diff is Yolanda's Lyme disease.

Which Of These Sexy Real Housewives Do You Think Is The Sexiest?

As hypothetically alluded to by TamaraTattles,

Under California law a prenup where spousal support has been waived is not enforced "where doing so would be unconscionable". A court previously ruled on a case that leaving a spouse who was brain damaged with no spousal support qualifies as 'unconscionable'. (Stick with me here.) Could having a disease that renders you unable to read or write or drive be considered brain damage? Yolanda frequently refers to her 'Lyme brain' on RHOBH—could this lead to her prenup being invalidated?

Yolanda was previously married to Mohammed Hadid and also had a prenup going into that marriage. Apparently she managed to get the prenup thrown out during their divorce, and secured alimony for herself as well as the three children she had with the property magnate, plus multiple properties worth big $$. Bearing in mind only one of those children are still under 18, her income from that agreement has decreased considerably and will expire in just two years' time.

Of course, it is a sad fact that two of those children have tragically been diagnosed with the same debilitating disease. Could that mean that their momma may have grounds to have the settlement revisited?

This is the fourth divorce for David and we suspect it's going to be expensive. Be under no illusions, Yolanda is no dummy and knows exactly how the game is played.

Here's wishing her a full recovery (after the divorce is finalized of course).

David And Yolanda Foster Divorce

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster and her musician husband of four years, David Foster are to divorce.

The couple told People;

"Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways.  We've shared nine beautiful and joyous years together.  During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues."

Yolanda Foster Selling Stunning $27.5 Million Mansion—Take A Peek Inside

The Dutch born ex-model, 51 has been struggling with her health for the last three years after being diagnosed with Lyme disease.  She has frequently posted pictures of her receiving treatment and has spoken openly of the toll it has taken on her every-day life.

The first episode of the new season of RHOBH aired yesterday and saw Yolanda tearfully revealing the loneliness of her treatment—notably absent was her husband.  She explained his apparent lack of support, saying;

"He's so busy, he travels for work...that's who he is...that shouldn't change just because I'm sick."

That speaks volumes.  Of COURSE his lifestyle should change if his wife is sick.  That's what you do when you are married.  You know that vow about 'in sickness and in health'?

Mother of models Bella and Gigi Hadid tied the knot with songwriter and uber-producer David, 66,  back on 11/11/11—it was Yolanda's second marriage and David's fourth.  In March this year Yolanda, 51,  praised her husband for supporting her through her illness but it couldn't have failed to cause a big shift in their marriage.  Earlier seasons of RHOBH saw Yolanda devoted to making her husband's life as easy and smooth running as possible and her debilitating illness will surely have had an impact on that.

The couple put their $19.45 million Malibu mansion on the market earlier this year  and moved out of the property in October—with Yolanda claiming that she just could not cope with managing it whilst trying to focus on her health.  Just four weeks ago David posted a picture of the two of them celebrating his birthday at a Laker game with the caption "best Laker girl ever".

Yolanda's co-star Kyle Richards appeared on Watch What Happens Live just after the news broke and admitted there had been signs that all was not well with the marriage.

"It's very sad...I mean, we didn't know.  I think that they've been struggling and Yolanda's been so sick.  I don't know if that has anything to do with it.  It's so sad."

Nice of her to acknowledge that Yolanda has been struggling—in the episode aired, Richards and co-star Lisa Vanderpump were bitching to the camera, shocked that Yolanda, who had forced herself to attend a girls dinner while feeling incredibly ill, hadn't bothered to put any make up on!  Jeez!  Does the woman not have her priorities straight? No wonder her husband left her!

Filming for the season has wrapped already so the split will not be shown on camera, however in July David told people that he struggled to support his wife.

"I fail some days.  You know, I get cranky and then I realize that she's got it 100 times worse than me.  But I just do my best."

Well whatever happened, Yolanda can now just focus on herself and getting well.

If you're a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fan, no introduction needs to be made regarding Yolanda Foster's gigantic Malibu mansion.

The home has featured prominently on the show, especially Yolanda's insanely cool see-through fridge which is fancier than most people's cars.

Yolanda's famous lemon trees are in abundance, perfect for the Master Cleanse she seems to undertake every three weeks (if you're a fan of starving on lemon juice and cayenne pepper until your hair starts falling out, it's the cleanse for you). Fun!

Anyway, have a spare $27.5 million lying around? This gorgeous European Villa-style estate could be yours!

Built in 2009, the house boasts some seriously dramatic ocean and mountain views. With a tidy 11,600 square feet to get lost in, the property has six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. There is also a library, a screening room, and David Foster's recording studio, for all you music buffs out there (the Canadian Tenors, anyone?).
