Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are reportedly engaged

Joe Scarborough and his longtime Morning Joe cohost Mika Brzezinski got engaged last weekend, sources tell Emily Smith at the New York Post's Page Six. Scarborough reportedly asked Brzezinski to marry him while the two were on a vacation in Monaco and the south of France to celebrate Brzezinski's 50th birthday. Both morning TV personalities are divorced, and their romance began last June, just after Brzezinski's divorce, Page Six reports. Scarborough "had a rough few years with his divorce and the passing of his father, but he's been the happiest he's ever been these last few months with Mika," a "friend of Joe's" told Smith. The relationship was not public, but Scarborough hinted at it in April, telling The Hollywood 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?"
