While Katherine McPhee is only 24, the man in her life is going to want
kids and she will need to work with him in the relationship and
coordinate a pregnancy with her busy schedule.

The American Idol runner up hit the tabloids head on after her loss on the hit show. She was, undoubtedly, one of the most talented singers ever to appear on American Idol and has since made quite a name for herself singing with some of the biggest stars in the world. The tabloids were not reporting on her singing ability, however, they were reporting on her addiction to weight loss.

Katherine McPhee admitted soon after the end of American Idol to having an eating disorder. She was suddenly in the spotlight with everyone taking photos of the lean star that seemed to be getting leaner by the minute. If wasn’t until the star was married and pictures appeared of her and new hubby on their honeymoon that the pregnancy rumors started.

Maybe it was the honeymoon food or the comfortable nature she shared with her husband, but the photos were certainly pregnancy material. Since that time, Katherine McPhee has returned to her skinny side and the pregnancy rumors were stopped. Since the honeymoon, there has been little talk about Katherine McPhee being pregnant, but those are the times when the celebrities love to step out of the shadows and announce they are going to have a baby.

Katherine McPhee was the offspring of talented parents. It even helped that she was the daughter of a singing teacher. When she appeared on the American Idol stage, it was nearly unfair for the person who finished below her. From the first note, Katherine McPhee overpowered the crowd and the rest of her contestants. By the end of American Idol, Katherine McPhee did not lose because she was not the best, but rather because she was too adult for the voting American Idol crowd of watchers.


The future for Katherine McPhee is brighter than many of her American Idol cast members. She has graced the stage with David Foster and Andrea Bocelli. Her music touches the heart of a much older crowd which brings us back to the pregnancy news at hand.

Katherine McPhee is married to Nick Cokas. Nick is 43 years old and that means that time is running out for this celebrity couple. While Katherine McPhee is only 24, the man in her life is going to want kids and she will need to work with him in the relationship and coordinate a pregnancy with her busy schedule. Unlike many other celebrities, when you are popular with the older crowd, pregnancy is not as big a deal. She does not have to deal as much with the younger pop crowd as her counterparts in the pop singing world. She does, however, have to deal with Father Time as her husband pushes past 45 and on toward 50 in the coming years. It looks like Katherine McPhee will be pregnant sooner rather than later in order to keep the love coals burning in this relationship. So much for her 2007 announcement that pregnancy could wait as daddy Cokas may have something to say about that.
