David Foster has no regrets about being a father in his 70s.
While speaking about his new Christmas album with his wife Katharine McPhee, he told PEOPLE that having a new baby was "not something" he thought would happen in his 70s. However, he said, "I haven't regretted a single day of it."
The 73-year-old music producer has a 2-year-old son with McPhee. They married in 2019.
"I've loved every single day," he said. "It's the standard thing of like, 'Oh, well you were so young when you had your children and you were working day and night, you never saw them.' And there is some truth to that, sadly, for my [older] kids. I was just working a lot. Even though I'm working a lot now, I'll cancel anything just to hang with him. It's just different."
Other than his son Rennie, he also has five daughters from his previous relationships: Allison, 52, Amy, 49, Sara, 41, Erin, 40, and Jordan, 36.
Speaking about their son, McPhee said, "He's so much fun". "We're having such a great time, and we're incredibly busy. We wish we weren't traveling quite as much, but we get to take our little guy with us for most of this stuff."
The couple also spoke about Rennie's current love for music. "We think [he'll be musical], but we don't know," Foster said. "Kids, strangely, will do something for a while and then it'll amaze you and then they just drop it and they don't do it anymore. So we don't know if the drumming thing is here to stay — I'd rather he have a tennis racket in his hand than a drumstick to tell you the truth. But anyway, if he ends up being a drummer, that would be great too. He loves watching our drummer, JR Robinson."
McPhee posted videos on Instagram of her son playing different instruments. In one video, he was pressing different keys on the piano. "I love these chunky thighs," she captioned.
In another video, he was tapping away on an electric drum pad. "Already showing off my child's talents," she wrote.
The couple has not only been busy with their son, but they have also recorded a new album, Christmas Songs.
"A couple of years ago on Instagram, we started a little Kat & Dave show, just for fun, and it kind of got some traction during COVID," Foster said.
"Then, so a couple of months ago, I said yeah, 'We should do a Christmas song and put it up on Instagram!' And then I got obsessed, as I always do, in the studio, and I started getting in there and she sings so amazingly... I got obsessed and it ended up being an album."
"This is the album I always wanted to make," McPhee shared with Entertainment Tonight.
"There's nobody like you," she continued, addressing her husband/producer. "Where he just comes in and he has vision and he tells you, you know, 'Sit back, relax, sing and let me do the rest.' So for me, I didn't have to really work that hard. I just got to sing pretty songs."
The album releases on November 25, 2022.
