Katie Couric Is Engaged
Congrats are in order for adorable TV and talk show host Katie Couric. The anchor got engaged to John Molner, her boyfriend of two years, over the Labor Day holiday weekend.
Molner, 50, popped the question to Couric, 56, by presenting her with a diamond ring at sunset on the beach in East Hampton, N.Y., a rep confirmed to People. How incredibly romantic! That scenario is right out of a movie.
The two didn’t go public with their relationship until April of last year.
Couric was previously married to Jay Monahan, who died in 1998 after a battle with colon cancer. They had two daughters — Ellie, now 21, and Carrie, now 17. If anyone deserves happiness in love, it’s Couric, who in the past admitted that she envisioned herself as a modern-day Carol Brady who would eventually marry again and expand her family. Looks like that idea is becoming a reality for her.
Couric’s eponymous talk show has been renewed for a second season, which begins airing on Sept. 9, while Molner, who is from Chicago, works in the finance world, serving as the head of mergers and acquisitions at Brown Brothers Harriman.
So not only are they a handsome couple — they are a successful one, as well.
StarCrush wishes Couric and Molner the best! We can’t wait to see the ring.
