It's been a whirlwind month for Katharine McPhee. On July 3rd, the American Idol star was on top of the world when her boyfriend David Foster asked her to marry him. Less than two weeks later, she was letting the world know with a heavy heart that her father had passed away. Now, she's trying to celebrate life and love instead of mourn what she's lost, and she shared another emotional tribute to her dad on Instagram Saturday night (July 21) that featured the first public glimpse of her beautiful engagement ring.

"It’s been a hard week. Lots of tears but I want to thank my friends and family for all the love and support," she began the heartfelt post, alongside a photo of her displaying her new bling. "My dad was so happy for me. My ring was the last thing I showed my dad before he passed and makes me smile when I look at this as a reminder of our last conversation." 

"And now I’m ready to share with all of you what has been my sunshine amongst this painful loss," she continued. "My love wisely said to me the other day that 'death is the only thing that is 100 percent inevitable and the thing we are least prepared for.' So today we’re celebrating life and not forgetting love."

Check out her loving post below.
