So far, life hasn’t turned out quite the way Katharine McPhee imagined it would. The American Idol runner-up is now starring on the small screen hit Smash, and though she’s happily married to producer Nick Cokas, the pair don’t have children yet. The 28-year-old says she has no regrets about that.
“I once thought that by now I’d have lots of children, but actually I’m really enjoying being able to go from point A to point B and the only worry I have is have my dogs been walked,” Katharine tells Lucky magazine. “I’m selfish right now, but that’s how and where I should be. The thing is, work is the thing I love the most.”
When she’s not working, Katharine reveals that she steers clear of the NYC party scene, explaining, “When you’re on a show like this, one that requires so much singing, you have to be really protective of your instrument. You don’t get to just, like, go out and party all night.”
So where does the multi-talented star hope to be down the road? “In five years I’d love to have done a play and a few movies, and of course I hope Smash keeps going,” she says.
As for kids, we’ll just have to wait and see.
