Katharine’s post came after she took to Instagram Stories to share a video of her stellar performance during a family dinner on Wednesday. 

The Scorpion star leaped to her feet and joined the singing wait staff at their meal for a medley of pop songs.

The celebration comes just before her big wedding day. DailyMail.com has learned the nuptials are expected to take place in London this weekend and will be a small, intimate celebration with around 80 guests.

‘It won’t be a big showbiz wedding like his previous nuptials. This one is more focused on their respective families and very close friends,’ said an insider. 

His daughters Sara and Erin Foster – whom he had with Rebecca Dyer – are already in London as their recent Instagram posts show them at the Dorchester Hotel. 

The couple picked up their marriage license in Beverly Hills in mid May. The license expires 90 days after it was taken out.

Katherine has been enjoying a string of festivities ahead of her wedding to David, including a romantic getaway to Mykonos. 

As far as their dinner in London on Wednesday, it looked like a fun family affair.

Katharine shared that ‘things took an interesting turn when the waitress burst into song,’ over a clip of two of the staff serenading David.

Her cousin Daniel Corbett got up and joined in the fun as the waiters and waitresses belted out a rendition of the 1977 David Bowie song Heroes.

‘Then I took it to the next level and started to really scare my new family,’ Katherine wrote on a video of her singing and dancing with the staff.

By that point, the group had broken into the 1968 song Proud Mary originated by Creedence Clearwater Revival and also memorably sung by Ike and Tina Turner.

She played a limited run in Waitress at London’s Adelphi Theatre from March 7 to June 15 this year after previews through most of February, per Playbill.

Katharine, whose future stepdaughters Erin and Sara are older than she is, stepped into the Broadway production of Waitress for two limited runs last year.

Waitress opened on Broadway in 2016 with Jessie Mueller in the lead role of Jenna Hunterson – the part Katharine played two years later.

The show was adapted from Adrienne Shelley’s 2007 movie starring Keri Russell, Nathan Fillion, Cheryl Hines, Jeremy Sisto and the Andy Griffith.

Katharine’s first run in Waitress, which features a Tony-nominated score by Sara Bareilles, marked the Smash star’s debut on the Great White Way.

Katharine, who was pap-snapped kissing her married Smash director Michael Morris while she was still with her husband Nick Cokas, subsequently got divorced and eventually wound up with David, who is three divorces ahead of her.

She confirmed their engagement during a European vacation last July where David proposed on top of a mountain in Anacapri, Italy.
