With 10 American Idol hopefuls ready to throw down tonight, it's only appropriate that fifth season finalist Katharine McPhee celebrates her 24th birthday today!

That, or it's just a coincidence.

Either way, we wish Katharine McPhee the happiest of birthdays on this 25th of March. At the very least, it gives us an excuse to run this hot photo!

She may be having trouble staying with a record label these days, but you can see why Nick Cokas signed Katharine to a lifetime contract, right?

When does your favorite star celebrate the anniversary of his or her birth? Who is up next? Confer with our celebrity birthdays calendar now and see!

Whether it's a stay in the hospital where you actually receive care (Britney Spears), an 8:30 a.m. drunken joyride (Barron Hilton) or a week in Hawaii filled with a nude Katharine McPhee (Nick Cokas), all good things must come to an end.

Here, the former American Idol runner-up and her husband return from their week in paradise. Katharine may have just been released by her record label, and dissed by Simon Cowell, but we trust she's in good hands with Nick Cokas...

Days until Nick Cokas gets Katharine McPhee pregnant? We have no idea, but start the countdown now. The girl has babies on the brain. It won't take that long!

Katharine McPhee and Nick Cokas married on Saturday, February 2 at the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church before heading to a wedding reception at St. Viviana's in Los Angeles. The couple - and 300+ guests - had a blast!

Putting aside the speculation of a pregnant Katharine McPhee for now, take a look at some of these sweet wedding photos. We have to say, former American Idol star Katharine McPhee and Nick Cokas make a very cute couple.

We've posted a few cute pictures below. People has some more here.

She's certainly a beautiful bride. Can you spot Katharine's fellow American Idol Season Four finalist Kellie Pickler among her many bridesmaids?

Katharine McPhee may be happy with her marriage to Nick Cokas.

But the former American Idol runner-up can't be thrilled with the performance of her self-titled debut album, which sold roughly 366,000 since it was released last February. Meanwhile, Simon Cowell simply isn't thrilled with McPhee herself.

"Didn't care much about Katharine McPhee," Cowell told Extra Thursday. "I don't think she was a credible recording artist. Katharine will end up on Broadway!"

Simon went on to to reject the notion that American Idol has given seventh-season Hollywood tickets to several contestants who previously had recording contracts - such as Kristy Lee Cook and Carly Smithson - as part of a conspiracy to insure that the show's next winner is a chart-topping success.

"Oh, give me a break!" Cowell sad. "Regardless of whether or not you got a recording contract, they've all failed, which is why they turn up on American Idol."

One day after their Beverly Hills wedding, Katharine McPhee and Nick Cokas jetted off to Hawaii for a romantic honeymoon... and possibly more!

The American Idol star, 23, and her husband, 42, arrived in Maui Sunday. They've been seen hanging out on the beach and shopping.

But they may have other plans entirely.

Katharine, who's said she's "always wanted to be pregnant," may have gotten an early star. Check out this loose-fitting top she's wearing ...

Is Katharine McPhee pregnant? Hmm. This picture may be deceiving, as it may just be the cover-up she's wearing over her swimsuit that makes it look like it.

If Nick Cokas did get Katharine McPhee pregnant, though, consider this the first evidence! And count us among the first to congratulate them!

What do you think? Is Katharine with child?

Katharine McPhee and actor Nick Cokas wed Saturday in Beverly Hills, with 300 guests - including a gospel choir - filling a Presbyterian Church!

McPhee's bridesmaids wore floor-length pink dresses, matching the flowers, which included pink, purple, peach and white roses.

Rumer Willis, McPhee's costar in the upcoming film I Know What Boys Like, was among the celebrities in attendance at the wedding.

Katharine McPhee, 23, and Nick Cokas, 42, first met when they performed in a L.A. theater production of The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.

They began dating in 2005, and soon after, Nick Cokas convinced her to try out for American Idol and drove her to the auditions. They got engaged last year.

The singer and Southern California native has always shrugged off the 19-year age difference between herself and Nick Cokas.

"I love [older men]," she has said. "They're just wiser, and they're less about themselves and more about you."

While McPhee was recently dropped from her label, she may have other plans in store - both career-wise and family-wise.

"I want to have, like, 15 babies," she said in an interview late last year. "I've always wanted to be pregnant!"

Sounds like it won't be ltoo ong before we come out with our next headline about the gorgeous singer: Katharine McPhee pregnant!

We can only hope finalists from the upcoming season of American Idol provide us with as much news - and beauty - as Katharine McPhee and Carrie Underwood.

We're sad to report, though, that McPhee has parted ways with RCA after just one album, a 2007 self-titled CD that debuted at #2 on The Billboard 200.

The album has sold just 366,000 units in the U.S. Fortunately, Katharine still has Nick Cokas to go home to every night. We think she'll bounce back.

Meanwhile, Underwood has finally come clean about her relationship with Tony Romo. In the latest issue of Women's Health - which Gossip Girl star and current Carrie boyfriend Chace Crawford may wish to avoid - the singing sensation says:

"He was not my boyfriend and we were never dating. The more I screamed ‘We're not dating!' the more headlines claimed that we were a couple or that I was crying because he was out with another girl. We're really good friends, we hang out a lot, and we're close… well, friends smooch occasionally."

We wonder how Jessica Simpson feels about this.

Former American Idol runner-up and certified cutie Katharine McPhee flashes that trademark smile we know and love as she pumps gas in Los Angeles.

And Kat's car isn't the only thing getting pumped up - the singer herself has plenty to be psyched for, as McPhee and boyfriend Nick Cokas recently got engaged!

That's one happy former American Idol star at the gas station!

Even in photos like this, where she's wearing far, far too much clothing, our staff adores Katharine McPhee. She's definitely the cutest creature we've done a post on all week ... narrowly edging out Suri Cruise and celebrity polar bear Knut.

As the world shows love to this year's second place finisher on American Idol, Blake Lewis, the runner-up from last season is feeling awfully lonely.

We don't know why. Katharine McPhee is quite gorgeous and talented.

Idols Giving Back

While scores of American Idol alums turned out to partake in this year's season finale, McPhee was as absent from the festivities as Britney Spears is from any semblance of normalcy.

Although fellow Season 5 competitors Elliot Yamin, Kellie Pickler, Taylor Hicks and Chris Daughtry all returned for guest spots this season, McPhee was missing from the rundown â€" and it was not by choice.

"Katharine called them herself, trying to get on the [finale]," a source close to the singer tells Us Magazine. "She's really hurt."

Not as hurt as Aubrey O'Day probably is that we compared her to an Oompa Loompa. But still.

Of course, Kat wasn't the only former Idol who got dissed. When Sony/BMG president Clive Davis addressed the TV audience, he made sure to plug Hicks' new single, but failed to mention Kelly Clarkson's latest single or her forthcoming CD, My December, over which the two have reportedly butted heads.

McPhee's rep could not be reached and Fox had no comment, but we want McPhee to know that she's welcome to perform on any concert sponsored by The Hollywood Gossip.

The next one scheduled is the Lindsay Lohan Rehab Rock 'n Roll Fest.
