Katie Couric got engaged to her boyfriend John Molner over Labor Day weekend, People magazine reported Tuesday.
Molner proposed with a diamond ring at sunset on the beach in East Hampton, and Couric "ecstatically" accepted, according to the magazine. A spokesperson for Couric confirmed the engagement to People.
Couric became a widow when her husband Jay Monahan died from colon cancer in 1998. She has said in the past that she would be "open" to re-marrying. Molner will be stepfather to Couric’s two daughters, Ellie and Carrie, ABC News noted.
“We’re having a great time. He’s really funny and very successful in his own right. In a different line of work. A little more age appropriate,” Couric told USA Today in May.
