Katie Couric is Engaged!


Katie Couric had an extra exciting Labor Day – complete with a marriage proposal from her boyfriend, John Molner.

He popped the question to the 56-year-old TV host over the holiday weekend at sunset on the beach in East Hampton, according to People.com.

“Katie’s calling it her labor of love,” said People editor Larry Hackett on Good Morning America announcing the news.

Molner, 50, is a partner at investment firm Brown Brothers Harriman. The pair have been dating for nearly two years.

Couric has been a widow since her late husband Jay Monahan passed away from colon cancer in 1998. She is the mother of two daughters, Ellie, 21, and Carrie, 17.

In the past, she was open about imagining that she would make another trip down the aisle.

“When the girls were really little, I always imagined I would be modern-day Carol Brady,” she said in a 2011 interview.

“I used to worry a lot about the future. [But] who knows what it will bring?” she added. “Hopefully it will bring good things.”

Looks like her wish is coming true!
