New York, NY, United States (4E) – Television host Katie Couric and her banker boyfriend John Molner have gotten engaged over the weekend.
Couric’s representative confirmed the engagement, saying it Molner proposed at sunset on a beach in east Hampton, with a diamond ring.
Couric, 56, and Molner, 50, have been dating for nearly two years, but only went public in April 2012.
Last may, the host expressed that she is having a great time with Molner, saying, “He’s really funny and very successful in his own right. In a different line of work. A little more age appropriate.”
Couric became a widow in 1998 when her husband Jay Monahan died from colon cancer. They have two kids together, daughters Ellie, now 21, and Carrie, now 17.
