The father of five said of his new wife: ‘It’s amazing to watch because that’s a huge talent – being able to navigate my life.’
He said: ‘She’s opinionated, super-talented, and along with that super-talent comes a big brain, and she’s got a lot to say. It’s challenging, but in the best way possible.’
David told the magazine that his wife ‘has to keep pushing to make me answer things that I don’t want to answer, which is great.’
The silver fox, whose ex-wives include Yolanda Hadid, said Katharine’s ‘navigation skills are better than anybody’s I’ve ever seen and she’s super-evolved.’

He declined to say whether he and Katharine were planning to have any children of their own, though she has said in the past she wants them.
Meanwhile David said: ‘I think maybe we should make a record together. I would love to and I think she would love to, and I think it would be really a cool thing to do. She has a great voice. We could make a great stream.’

She is now featured in a new documentary about her husband called David Foster: Off The Record, out this Wednesday on Netflix.
David, who is on his fifth marriage, himself admits in the documentary that ‘when things get rough or bad, rather than working it out I run.’
‘He runs but I come chasing for him, but I did tell him, I said: “There are gonna be times when I need you to come find me,”‘ says Katharine in the movie.
Erin, who famously gets along well with Katharine, says in the documentary of her father: ‘Women are his weakness.’
