On Friday, McPhee posted a message on social media letting fans know that she would be missing two upcoming shows in Jakarta, Indonesia. She explained that she and Foster “have had a horrible tragedy in our family and at least one of us needs to get back home to our family.”
McPhee didn’t give any further details about the nature of the tragedy. However, TMZ later reported that the nanny to their 2-year-old son Rennie had apparently passed away. They reportedly considered the nanny to be family.
The circumstances surrounding the nanny’s death are not clear, and neither McPhee nor Foster has publicly commented on the reports. Fans and friends shared their concern on McPhee’s post, with The Masked Singer panelist Nicole Scherzinger writing, “Sending my love and prayers for your family.”
The Couple Welcomed Their Son in 2021
McPhee and Foster have been married since 2019. In 2021, they welcomed their first child together, a son named Rennie. Foster also has five adult daughters from previous relationships. The 73-year-old musician has been married five times.
Rennie is McPhee’s first child. Earlier this year, the American Idol runner-up told Jennifer Hudson that she and Foster are interested in having another child together, adding, “We’re not in any crazy rush, but I hope so.”
In 2021, McPhee and Foster competed together on Season 6 of The Masked Singer as the duo Banana Split, finishing the competition in third place. The couple is scheduled to tour the United States together beginning this November.
