The news comes on the heels of reports that Katharine is dating her former Smash director Michael Morris — who is also married! They were recently photographed kissing in public in LA. Michael's wife is actress Mary McCormack. They share three daughters, ages 2, 6 and 9.

Earlier this year, Katharine explained that she and her soon-to-be ex — who is 19 years her senior — put starting a family on hold.

"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," the American Idol runner-up said. "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."

Katharine and Nick first met in 2005 when they performed in a LA production of The Ghost and Mrs. Muir and soon began a romantic relationship. Later that year, Katharine auditioned for Idol. They got engaged in 2007 and the pair wed in Beverly Hills on Feb. 2, 2008.

"Nick is the love of my life," Katharine shared at the time. "This is a once in a lifetime occasion and everything is just perfect."
