Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are officially engaged.
According to an early morning report from the New York Post’s infamous Page 6, Scarborough proposed while the pair were on holiday in France and Monaco to celebrate Brzezinski’s 50th birthday.
Per Page 6:
We’re told Scarborough, 54, got down on one knee and proposed at the scenic Bar Bellini at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, which has a breathtaking moonlit outdoor terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
The off-air romance between Joe and Mika has long been an open secret. There had been speculation that the romance was on the rocks after a nasty on-air spat between the two in which Scarborough called Brzezinski “rude” and “snotty”
Show mainstay Harold Ford Jr. couldn’t resist a cryptic on-air congratulations to the cable news stars early in the Thursday broadcast, which Willie Geist clarified was for the “ratings.” Mark Halperin also offered his congratulations for “the ratings” as well.
… We see what you did there!
—— Oh and congratulations!
