As “new” reports of an engagement between former American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee and her actor beau Nick Cokas spread around the Internet, OK! sits back and asks “that’s news?” since we reported it almost two months ago!

“They’re definitely engaged,” a source on the set of Katherine’s film House Bunny told OK! — back in September. “They’ve been talking about it for some time.”


The 23-year-old brunette beauty and her 42-year-old fiancé originally met when they co-starred together onstage in The Ghost & Mrs. Muir.

Since, as has become a tradition in Hollywood of late, the couple has yet to confirm or deny the good news, OK! contacted Kat’s rep, who only said “we do not comment on our clients’ personal lives.”
