Katie Couric is now engaged to her boyfriend of two years, People magazine reports

Financier John Molner proposed to the broadcaster over the weekend on a beach in East Hampton, N.Y.. The couple appeared earlier this year at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, and were also spotted courtside at a New York Knicks game.

The TV star has been a widow since 1998, when her husband Jay Monahan died of colon cancer, leaving their two small daughters fatherless. Couric told People in 2011 that she had hoped for a second marriage, joking that she wanted to be a “modern day Carol Brady.” But eventually Couric stopped worrying about her love life and focused on her daughters and her career, until she met Molner two years ago.

Sheesh, what is with some of you people? I'm not a fan of hers, but be nice to a lady whose husband died, who raised her kids by herself, and has found love again at my age! And he's a Chicagoan to boot. Congrats, Katie and John!


Who cares? This is not worthy of headlines.


She'll be his Trophy Wife... he didn't win First Place.
