Katie Couric's Labor Of Love - Journalist Leaves Single Life Behind With Labor Day Engagement

Subscribe Katie Couric

Katie Couric, one of the most respected American journalists, has found love again at the age of 56. Couric, who lost her first husband Jay Monahan to colon cancer in 1998, and 50-year-old financier John Molner, announced their engagement over the Labor Day weekend.

People editor Larry Hackett congratulated Ms Couric during his own appearance on Good Morning America and joked about the timing, saying: "Katie's calling it her labor of love.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!

According to USA Today, Couric had gushed about her happy relationship back in May, saying that she and Molner were "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."

Speaking of age, Molner might be five years Couric’s junior, but the age difference is hardly noticeable to the journalist, whose previous relationships include trumpeter Chris Botti (5 years younger) and entrepreneur Brooks Perlin (17 years younger). The small age difference doesn’t bother Couric, who said: "He's six younger than I am. But hey, I've got a lot of energy, you know. I need someone who can keep up with me!"

Couric has some experience dating younger men.

The journalist already has two daughters – Ellie, 22, and Carrie, 17 – both of whom have left the family home already. It seems like the perfect time for Couric to remarry and apparently, she herself is strongly in favor of relationships later in life, having 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."

The single part of our readership shouldn’t take this to heart. As for Ms. Couric and her fiancé, the Contactmusic team would like to wish the happy couple all the best in their married life.
