Two co-hosts of a morning TV show got engaged over the weekend. The New York Post’s Page Six cites sources confirming that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, who host “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, are set to be married after Scarborough proposed during a trip to the south of France.
The report calls Scarborough and Brzezinski “the first couple of cable news.”
“We’re told Scarborough, 54, got down on one knee and proposed at the scenic Bar Bellini at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, which has a breathtaking moonlit outdoor terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea,” the story reports. The trip was in celebration of Brzezinski’s 50th birthday.
The Post quotes a source saying: “Joe got down on one knee and proposed old-fashioned-style with a ring. Of course, Mika accepted. They came back from the trip on Cloud Nine. … There are no wedding plans as of yet, they are just telling their families the happy news.”
Scarborough ended a 12-year marriage in 2013 and Brzezinski divorced her husband of 23 years last June.
Political friction between Scarborough, a Republican, and Brzezinski, a Democrat, has been a prominent element of the debate on “Morning Joe.”
