Going to have to use 5/8 fire code drywall.
Just how do you plan on adding this foam and be able to add something over it?
What's got to hold it up?

Ever seen what happens to a 1 X 2 when you run a row of screws in it?
It splits right down the middle.

#1 No one know where you are on the planet because there's no location in your profile.
Questions like this workout better if you would go to quick links and edit your profile to add your location.
The right way in my option would be to remove the drywall that's there now, add baffles so there could be air flow from the soffits to a ridge vent.
Shim out the rafters to fit the needed room for the required insulation, insulate, and sheetrock.
Just guessing here, there's no pictures of your home, no location.
