In 2017, John joined his wife on-screen when he co-starred in cooking show Full Plate With Katie & John.
The pair -founded Katie Couric Media, which “collaborates with some of the world’s biggest brands to create elevated, purpose-driven content”.
Katie said about her husband: “It took me a long time [to marry again], because I loved being married and I love being married now,
“And I’m not a solitary person. I like company.
“And John is so funny. He’s just got this incredibly dry and wry sense of humor, and he doesn’t take himself too seriously. And he’s just fun to be around.”
When did the couple meet?
Katie was introduced to husband John by her friend Molly.
She told People: “In 2012 I was single again and I asked a friend of mine, Molly, whose husband is a trauma surgeon, if her husband knew any other doctors because I thought I’d like to go out with a doctor,
“And so she thought about it and she said, ‘We don’t really know a doctor, but we do know this banker named John Molner.’ And I said, ‘Does he have a pulse?’ ”
When they first met, Katie said: “He had me at hello.”
The couple got engaged in 2013.
Do they have kids?
Couric has no children with her new husband John.
But the news anchor has two daughters with her first husband, Jay Monahan, who she married in 1989.
They are Ellie, 28, a Yale graduate, and Carrie, 24, a Stanford student.
Their father Monahan tragically died in 1998 of colon cancer.
Ellie wrote in an essay published in HuffPost: “There are moments where I crumble at the thought of my father.”
Katie frequently pays tribute to her late husband.
In 2019 she wrote: “Dear Jay…It’s June 10th 2019 and today would have been our 30th anniversary,
“I hope you would be proud of the way I’ve lived my life and know you’d be proud of your girls who have grown into incredible young women.”
