Katie Couric gave us a glimpse of her enormous diamond engagement ring while sitting courtside at the US Open last night in Queens, NY. She was joined in the stands by her new fiancé, John Molner, who became engaged to the talk show host after a romantic sunset proposal on the beach in East Hampton over Labor Day weekend. Katie, who lost her husband Jay Monahan to colon cancer in 1998, and John, who is a banker, were dating for nearly two years prior to him popping the question.
Katie confirmed the good news on her Twitter account earlier this week, writing, "Yes it's true! So touched by all the kind tweets and warm wishes, thank you! A great end to the summer and looking forward to seeing you all on Monday!" Katie has lots to celebrate since she will return to TV on Sept. 9 for her talk show Katie's second season.
