John Molner, an American banker, and Katie Couric had a detour in life before falling in love in one other’s arms.

Prior to meeting each other, the two married and continued in relationships with other persons. They met later in life, as fate would have it, and became inseparable.

In 2012, they met through a mutual friend named Molly, and the financier’s “hello” was enough to wow Couric. Their fast-growing relationship turned into romance, and they made their first public appearance as a couple on July 28, 2012, at the Ellen Hermanson Breast Cancer Benefit.

Molner proposed to his sweetheart with a diamond ring on the beach in East Hampton, New York, within a year. On September 2, 2013, the couple got engaged with a delighted “yes.”

The couple wasted no time in planning their wedding. They married a year later in the backyard of Katie’s home in East Hampton, New York, on June 21, 2014.

Surprisingly, both of their children from a previous marriage were present at the wedding and showed their support for their parents.

Their First Wife, as well as their Children

John and his now-wife were previously married and had children with their first spouse before tying the wedding knots.

Jane Franke, an English teacher at Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island, was John’s wife. He has two children from his ex-marriage: wife’s a daughter named Allie Molner and a son named Henry Molner.

Couric was also married to Jay Monahan. They’ve had two daughters since they married in 1989. Jay’s nine-year marriage came to an end in 1998 when he died of colon cancer.

Molner and Couric dated separate persons after their first marriage.Molner had a woman named Jessica Hsu with whom he had a relationship. After starting his romance with Couric in 2012, the billionaire broke up with her, and the two had a rocky relationship. He was accused of infidelity by Hsu, who claimed he had planned to buy her an apartment. Molner, on the other hand, defended himself by claiming she was too young for him.

In 2006, Couric dated Brooks Perlin, a younger man who was 17 years her junior. In December 2011, they called it quits on their long-term relationship.

Molner Enjoys Spending Time With His Family and Married Life

The Chicago native enjoys his marriage with his wife by traveling to new locations with her and keeping in touch with his stepchildren.

Not only that, but he also works with his spouse in a variety of professional capacities. For example, in 2016, the couple launched Plate with Katie & John, an online cooking series in which they demonstrated their culinary skills alongside Sur La Table chef Joel Gamoran.

In 2017, they also formed Katie Couric Media, a media and news company.
