A European vacation to the south of France to celebrate Mika Brzezinski’s 50th birthday turned into a marriage proposal when her MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host, Joe Scarborough, got down on one knee and presented her with a solitaire diamond ring.
Viewers have suspected for months that the on-air relationship had taken a romantic turn, especially after Scarborough recently commented to a reporter: “We have a crackling on-air chemistry, and a crackling off-air chemistry, too … I think that pretty much says it, doesn’t it?”
A former Republican congressman who has been married twice and has four children, Scarborough once said, “I really don’t want to talk about my personal life. As always, I defer to Mika.” He divorced former Jeb Bush aide Susan Waren in 2013.
Brzezinski, a Democrat, divorced James Hoffer last year and has two daughters with him.
Their show started on Thursday morning at 6 a.m. with plenty of good-natured innuendoes, but no direct reference to the couple’s engagement.
