The D.C. and New York media bubbles are abuzz over the news that MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, who host the network’s morning show Morning Joe, are officially engaged.

Rumors of the couple’s alleged relationship have been swirling for months, but the MSNBC co-hosts have kept quiet so far. However, according to Page Six the couple got engaged over the weekend during a “romantic trip to the south of France and Monaco to celebrate Brzezinski’s 50th birthday.”

From Page Six:

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.

A source told us, “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.” The source added, “There are no wedding plans as of yet, they are just telling their families the happy news.”

A source close to Brzezinski said, “Mika turned 50 and realized she wanted to move forward with her life and spend every minute with Joe, and not just at work.”

A friend of Joe’s added, “He’s 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.” Reps for the couple and NBC declined to comment.

On Thursday’s Morning Joe, Mika and Joe’s co-hosts for the day, Harold Ford, Jr. and Willie Geist, awkwardly congratulated the couple on their engagement, pretending that they were referring to the show’s ratings success.

While Brzezinski and Scarborough kept their relationship under wraps for months, during the height of the 2016 presidential campaign, President Trump, who was feuding with the MSNBC hosts, threatened to expose the couple unless they stopped constantly attacking him:

Rumors have also been swirling since the couple held a strange photoshoot to promote their liberal show, with images like this:

Although many in the media, including Joe and Mika themselves, denied their relationship, President Trump knew the truth, and their engagement proves the president right once again. It isn’t much of a surprise that the co-workers would want to hide their relationship, as they didn’t want it to interfere with their daily job responsibilities, but their outright hostility towards the president forced him to act.

The real question is whether or not their supposed clashing of views – Mike playing the liberal and Joe playing the conservative – is all just a stage act.
