John Molner is a NYC-based financier, from Chicago who is a partner at investment firm Brown Brothers Harriman, so it looks like Couric isn’t the only successful one in the relationship. Apparently, Couric confessed to reporters last year that her man is “great” and she just “loves Midwesterners.”

In 1998, Couric lost her first husband Jay Monahan to colon cancer. After fifteen years of being a widow, we think it’s about time Couric have true love. Because Couric and Monahan had two daughters together and they were very young when their father died, Couric confessed to Us Weekly:

I always wanted a father figure for my daughters [Ellie and Carrie], but it hasn’t worked out that way. I’ve had long-term relationships, but they haven’t turned into life-long partners.

It may be a little late in the game as Ellie is 22 and Carrie is 17, but better late than never, right?
