Katie Couric is engaged to her boyfriend of two years John Molner. It seems Couric accepted his proposal over the Labour Day weekend. It seems the couple were enjoying a break in East Hampton, New York, when Molner proposed on the beach at sunset, according to sources speaking to People. Molner offered his future bride a beautiful diamond engagement ring, according to Couric's representative.

The television host has been dating banker John Molner for over two years. The couple first revealed their relationship publically in April 2012. The mother-of-two was previously married to Jay Monahan but was left widowed when he died, tragically, of colon cancer in 1998. She has had numerous romantic relationships over the past fifteen years but her relationship with Molner is the first to reach this serious stage. 

Couric confirmed the engagement news on Twitter, yesterday (3rd September). She wrote thanking her friends and fans for their "warm wishes". 

Couric and Molner are not the only couple to be celebrating their love this weekend. Kate Bosworth married director Michael Polish in Montana; whilst Seth Meyers married his long term girlfriend Alexi Ashe in an intimate Martha's Vineyard ceremony. Couric's talk show Katie has been confirmed for a second season, the first episode of which is due to premiere on 9th September. 

Congratulations to Katie Couric and John Molner on their engagement!
