See Katharine McPhee and David Foster’s baby ‘genius’ play the drums at age 2

Musicality runs in the family.

Katharine McPhee shared a video Friday of her and David Foster’s “genius” 2-year-old son, Rennie, playing the drums.

In the clip posted on TikTok, the “American Idol” alum walks into an apparent playroom, where the toddler was jamming behind his red personalized drum set as his 16-time Grammy-winning dad proudly watched.

“my 2 year old baby is a genius! 🤯,” McPhee wrote in the caption.

Rennie wore a gray T-shirt and a pair of black headphones as he performed his drum solo for his parents to the tune of Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You.”

Foster also shared the video on Instagram, where his peers expressed how they were equally as shocked at Rennie’s talent.

In October 2023, the “Terrified” singer shared that she accidentally baked Rennie’s iPad in the oven while trying “to hide it.”

“Just over here cooking iPads. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ I tried to hide it and forgot it was in there while hearing [sic] up the oven for my chicken special,” she captioned a video on her Instagram Stories at the time.

Later that month, McPhee told Us Weekly that she and Foster don’t “put up with any BS” when it comes to their toddler’s bad behavior because they “don’t want him to be an a—hole.”
