“We’re having a great time. He’s really funny and very successful in his own right. In a different line of work. A little more age appropriate,” Couric told USA Today,. Couric was referring to her previous boyfriend Brooks Perlin, who is 17 years younger than she. Molner is 50, Couric, 56.

Molner will be stepdad to Couric’s daughters, 21-year-old Ellie and 17-year-old Carrie Monahan. Couric’s husband Jay Monahan died from colon cancer in 1998.
