Katie Couric is making headlines. The former CBS anchor and current talk show host is now engaged to longtime boyfriend, John Molner. According to People, Couric accepted a romantic proposal over the holiday weekend.
Reps for the journalist told People magazine that Molner popped the question in East Hampton during sunset. “Katie’s calling it her labor of love,” said People editor Lary Hackett on Good Morning America where he announced the news. Molner is the head of mergers and acquisitions at Brown Brothers Harriman and the couple went public in April of last year. “He’s great. He’s from Chicago. I love Midwesterners,” she once gushed about her beau.
Couric’s previous husband, Jay Monahan, died in 1998 due to colon cancer. She dated several men after his death, but never seemed to find the one to settle down with until now! In the February issue of More magazine, Katie admitted she’s missed being married. “It’s actually surprising to me that it has been almost 15 years and I haven’t remarried. I think life is more fun when you have someone in your life.”
The timing is right now. The mother of two, recently had a daughter graduate from college with the other in her senior year of high school.
The second season of “Katie” airs September 9.
