  • In this May 6, 2013, file photo, TV personality Katie Couric, left, and John Molner attend The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute benefit celebrating "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" in New York. Couric has married Molner in a small ceremony at her East Hampton home.
After 16 years as a single mom, talk-show veteran Katie Couric is a married woman.

Couric, 57, married financier John Molner Saturday at her home in the Hamptons. The pair have been together for about two years.

USA Today reports that the small family ceremony featured readings and music from Couric's daughters, Ellie, 22, and Carrie, 18. Molner's nieces and nephews served as flower girls and ring bearers.

The couple kept things so low key that she didn't even settle on her ivory lace Carmen Marc Valvo dress until a week before the ceremony.

Couric lost her first husband, Jay Monahan, to colon cancer in 1998 when he was just 42, leading her to become a crusader against the illness and that famous live colonoscopy on NBC's “Today” show.

While she took a time-out from Twitter in the lead-up to the wedding, she did keep her promise to post a photo on Saturday. "So excited to make my debut as Mrs. John Molner," she said.

QUICK TAKES

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are expecting their second child.

Former NFL wide receiver Hank Baskett apparently cheated on his wife, former Playboy playmate Kendra Wilkinson, with a transsexual while she was pregnant with their second child.

An appellate court upheld a $19 million judgment against "Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis in a slander case filed over his claims that casino mogul Steve Wynn threatened to kill him.
