Couric later followed up her rep's confirmation, taking to Twitter to share the good news with her followers. She tweeted, "Yes it's true! So touched by all the kind Tweets & warm wishes-thank you! A great end to the summer & looking fwd to seeing you all Monday!!"

The 56-year-old TV regular has been seeing banker Molner for around two years now and have decided to finally tie the knot. This is Couric's second marriage, following the death of her first husband, Jay Monahan, in 1998 following a battle with colon cancer. Couric has two daughters from that marriage, Ellie, 21, and Carrie, 17. Molner has a teenage daughter with his ex-wife, Jane.

Couric had spoken in the past about her willingness to move on and find love again after the death of her husband, and now, 15 years later, it looks as though this is just what has happened! In an interview with More earlier this year she said, "It's actually surprising to me that it has been almost 15 years and I haven't remarried. I think life is more fun when you have someone in your life. I always wanted a father figure for my daughters, but it hasn't worked out that way. I've had long-term relationships, but they haven't turned into life-long partners."
