American journalist Katie Couric was recently and absolutely "stunned" on a beach in East Hampton by beau John Molner when he proposed marriage to the fifty six year old ABC newswoman. By her report to PEOPLE, the pair were relishing in the last days of summer when, he popped the big question.
And now the story is on the cover page of PEOPLE. According to an interview with Katie who offered the full story: "He [John] 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,' and I was stunned."
Then, per Katie's story, Molner took the traditional route, bent down to one knee, and presented her with a diamond. She went on to offer: "It took me a while to say yes, because I was so confused! It took a long time for my brain to process what was going on." Some people don't respond well to surprises but Katie did.
She said yes!!!
