Love is in the air for Katie Couric, who got engaged to boyfriend John Molner this weekend.
New York Daily News reports that her boyfriend popped the question with a spectacular diamond ring during a sunset in East Hampton.
Couric, 56, has been dating Molner, 50, for two years. The veteran TV host and her beau did not take the relationship public until spring of 2012.
According to US Magazine, Molner is a financier who works at investment firm Brown Brothers Harriman. Last year, the Katie host described her man stating, “He’s great. He’s from Chicago. I love Midwesterners!”
This marks the second marriage for Couric, who lost husband Jay Monahan to colon cancer in 1998. The pair had two children together, daughters Ellie and Carrie.
Couric was not shy about her dating life after his passing, but never found someone to settle down with. She previously dated financier Brooks Perlin and has been linked to Larry King, Jeff Probst and Bob Saget.
