Katie Couric on John Molner Proposal: Stunning! Awesome!

by at .

Katie Couric has moved on from her feud with Kim Kardashian.

And into the arms of John Molner! For life!

Yes, the talk show host is now engaged to her long-time boyfriend, following a romantic proposal a few days ago in East Hampton, New York. Romantic and totally unexpected, we should say.

"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,' " Couric tells People. "Finally he said, 'Couric, I'm trying to propose to you,' and I was stunned."

Couric, who lost her first husband to cancer in 1998, said it took a few moments to say yes because she was "so confused," but she had "made it a priority" awhile ago to find love once again.

"I knew that I wanted this," she says of finding a husband. "I pursued it with some purpose."
