David Foster admits he remains to be adjusting to raising a toddler at 73: ‘I won’t be around when he’s 40 or 30 perhaps’

David Foster admitted that he’s still adjusting to the challenge of raising a toddler at 73, following the birth of his and wife Katharine McPhee’s son, Rennie, in early 2021. 

While reflecting on life as a latest dad again, the legendary composer described how parenting his little boy has differed from rearing daughters Allison, 52, Amy, 49, Sara, 41, Erin, 40, and Jordan, 36, from previous relationships.

‘I had all daughters until my son and I really like all my daughters immeasurably, but having a son is a little bit bit different,’ he told People

The 16-time Grammy winner – who married Katherine in 2019 – continued: ‘At this point in my life, it’s different again.’

‘Not higher or worse, just different. I still work, I’m still gone so much, but perhaps the time is a little bit more precious to me because I got more runway behind me than I actually have ahead of me now,’ he reflected.

Foster went on to clarify that he can be determined to pass his ‘wisdom’ onto his son.

‘I believe that I can offer one thing to Rennie though I won’t be around when he’s 50 or 40 even, or 30 perhaps. I believe I can offer him wisdom from my 72 years on the planet,’ the star said. ‘And perhaps that is not a foul trade-off. I hope so.’

Moreover, Foster said becoming a father again has made him more patient.

‘I used to be not patient once I was young,’ he confessed. ‘I used to be smug and just on the move.’

In October, Foster told Folks that although becoming a father again at his age was ‘not something’ he anticipated, he has never ‘regretted a single day of it.’

The legendary music mogul reflected: ‘I’ve loved each day. It’s the usual thing of like: “Oh, well you were so young once you had your kids and also you were working day and night, you never saw them.”‘

He confessed to the magazine that ‘there’s some truth to that, sadly, for my [older] kids. I used to be just working so much. Although I’m working so much now, I’ll cancel anything simply to hang with him. It’s just different.’
