Can I just fangirl for a minute?
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are engaged! For a decade, they've been engaged in, as Scarborough would say, "crackling on-air chemistry," so I can't tell you how many times I've shipped the pair not just on-screen but off-screen, too. They always had an electric vibe on-air, so their engagement was really just a matter of time. When Brzezinski and her husband got divorced in the summer of 2016, she only fueled the rumors of a romance with her partner in crime Scarborough. I'm just glad they're finally open and honest about their relationship.
"Joe got down on one knee and proposed old-fashioned-style with a ring. Of course, Mika accepted. They came back from the trip on Cloud Nine. There are no wedding plans as of yet, they are just telling their families the happy news," a source tells People. They went to France and Monaco, so they could celebrate Brzezinski's birthday. Scarborough had more than just cake and champagne on his mind, though. He was worried about the pièce de résistance: the proposal.
The news anchors have worked with each other for a whopping ten years now, so they were bound to get together. The sparks were flying every time they appeared on camera! "Mika turned 50 and realized she wanted to move forward with her life and spend every minute with Joe, and not just at work," another source says. Aside from their exciting news, the pair had been quiet about their love life. Even Scarborough kept his mouth shut. "I really don't want to talk about my personal life," he told a GQ correspondent. He and Brzezinski just wanted to date in private. They knew their relationship would go public one day, anyway.
Hopefully, they can stay together despite the press and publicity.
