We couldn't be happier for her!
Katie Couric is engaged to her boyfriend of two years John Molner, her rep confirms.
The veteran TV journalist and the NYC-based financier went public with their romance in the spring of 2012. Couric's first husband, Jay Monahan, died of colon cancer in 1998, which left her to raise daughters Ellie and Carrie alone. Prior to Molner, the 56-year-old single mom dated Brooks Perlin for five years before splitting in 2011.
"I always wanted a father figure for my daughters [Ellie and Carrie], but it hasn't worked out that way. I've had long-term relationships, but they haven't turned into life-long partners," she confessed to More magazine back in January.
So what's her new fiance like?
"He's great. I love Midwesterners," she told reporters last year.
We love a happy ending!
