Katie Couric couldn't be any more in lurve with her new fiancé John Molner!
The two got engaged over the Labor Day weekend in what sounds like the absolute PERFECT setting: down on the beach, the ocean crashing against the shore, the breeze blowing softly through her hair. And then, the man she loves turned to her, got down on one knee and pulled out a diamond engagement ring!
But even after all that, Katie claims she had NO idea what was going on!
The talk show host is now admitting how confused she was when John popped the question. So much so, she didn't even say yes right away! Katie spilled:
"He said that there was a reason he'd brought me there to the beach, and that he loved me and was committed to me, and I said, 'Yeah, I know that, you didn't have to bring me here to tell me that.' Finally he said, 'Couric, I'm trying to propose to you!'"
First of all, we love that he calls her 'Couric'. That's adorable!
Second, we think it is cute as can be that Katie didn't see this proposal coming! Not even while it was happening!
Katie continued talking about their big moment, saying:
"I was stunned. It took me a while to say yes, because I was so confused!"
Of course, the 56-year-old mother of two did eventually agree to put the ring on her finger!
This will be Katie's second marriage after losing her husband Jay Monahan to colon cancer in 1998.
Congrats on finding love again, Katie! Just…try to be a little less confused on the wedding day!
