Katie Couric is engaged to longtime boyfriend John Molner.
The former Today show host’s rep confirmed the exciting news with The Hollywood Reporter. Molner, who has been dating Couric for the last two years, proposed to her during a sunset at the beach over Labor Day weekend.
Molner, a banker and the head of mergers and acquisitions at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co, is Couric’s first long term beau since her late husband, Jay Monahan, died from colon cancer in 1998.
Couric gushed about her then beau with USA Today in May. The 56-year-old Katie host noted that her mother “really like[s] him.”
"I encouraged him to be very Eddie Haskell around her,” she continued. “So he's always saying, 'May I get you another Diet Coke, Mrs. Couric?'"
Couric also explains that she doesn’t worry that Molner, who is 50, is younger than her. “I've got a lot of energy, you know. I need someone who can keep up with me!"
