Playing Katie Couric Gushes Over Husband John Molner: 'I Feel Really Lucky'

Katie Couric still sounds like a newlywed two and a half years after marrying John Molner.

The 60-year-old journalist -- who is promoting her Nat Geo documentary, Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric -- gushed over her marriage on Monday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and shared what makes Molner, 54, the "greatest guy."

"I feel really lucky because he's funny and kind and really smart and great company," Couric bragged. "You know, you forget how important it is just to enjoy being with the person."

She added, "You really appreciate it when you enjoy with being with that person. So, I'm really happy."

The couple married in June 2014 in an intimate ceremony at Couric's home in East Hampton, New York, in front of 50 friends and family. This is Couric's second husband. She was married to Jay Monahan for nine years until he died of colon cancer in 1998.

Couric has been quite candid about the highs and lows in her life. While on Anna Faris' podcast, Unqualified, last October, she opened up about her experience with cyberbulling.

"I think when you become a public figure, per se, people completely lose sight that you’re a real person,” she explained. "It's this weird kind of objectification, or depersonalization, and when I read these mean comments it’s like a knife in my heart."
