Back in August 2018 when Foster and Tikhman started dating, a source revealed that things were heating up quickly, saying, "It has been around six months and they are very serious." And just over a year later, they are husband and wife!

Who is Simon Tikhman? Let's find out the details about Erin Foster's new husband, including their New Year's Eve walk down the aisle.

1. How did Foster and Tikhman meet?

Foster and Tikhman reportedly met through mutual friends in Los Angeles. He first hit Erin's Instagram feed on Saturday, August 18th, making things official. The 35-year-old alum of The OC also previously dated Harry Styles.

2. Who is Simon Tikhman? He's an entrepreneur.

Simon Tikhman is the Managing Partner of the Fund at First Access Entertainment. Alongside his brother, Alex Tikhman, he has invested in a growing portfolio of start-ups in Silicon Valley including Robinhood, Philz Coffee, e-sports platform Vision Venture Partners, Espresa, Glmpse, and Exadel.

Tikhman is also a graduate of the University of Southern California, earing his BA in Entrepreneurial Studies at The Marshall School of Business in 2006.

3. Erin Foster has a good sense of humor about her father's love life.

The Foster family took a family vacation to Hawaii during the 2018 holiday season. This included her 70-year-old father and his 35-year-old fiancé, and now-wife, Katharine McPhee.

Foster joked she had to keep her eye on Simon during that trip, saying, “Imagine what it’s like to have a boyfriend on a vacation where your stepmom is hotter than you are and younger than you are. It’s, like, I have to make sure I had an eye on him.”

Foster was, of course, totally kidding. She and her sister Sara get along great with McPhee and support her relationship with their father.

Sara Foster added, "We approve of whoever is going to be good to my dad; at the end of the day and we’re very honest about it. If we ever thought that anyone was in something for the wrong reasons, we would be very vocal about it. We just want someone that’s going to treat him well and that cares about him, and I think he’s with someone right now that really does.”
