Katie Couric is engaged to boyfriend John Molner.

Katie Couric had an extra-special Labor Day weekend -- she got engaged to boyfriend John Molner!

The 50-year-old banker has been dating Couric, 56, for nearly two years. He popped the question on the beach in East Hampton, New York, during sunset, according to People magazine.

Couric, whose talk show "Katie" returns for a second season Sept. 9, has been a widow since 1998, when her husband Jay Monahan died of colon cancer. The pair had two daughters together: Elinor and Caroline Monahan, who are 22 and 17 years old, respectively.

After going public with Molner in April 2012, Couric told the press, "He's great. He's from Chicago. I love Midwesterners!"

Congrats to the happy couple!
