Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are engaged, a spokesperson for the network told HuffPost. According the New York Post, which first reported the news, the couple made it official over the weekend while on vacation in Antibes, France.
As Mediaite points out, guest Harold Ford Jr. congratulated the pair during Thursday’s broadcast, which co-host Willie Geist rushed to clarify was in reference to the show’s good ratings.
Scarborough and Brzezinski’s on-air banter has helped fuel the constant rumors that the two were dating. As Jezebel put it, their chemistry is “endearing and sexually tense as hell.”
The pair hadn’t gone out of their way to deny the reports, either.
“I really don’t want to talk about my personal life,” Scarborough, a former Republican congressman, told GQ last year. “As always, I defer to Mika.”
Most recently, Scarborough made headlines by telling The Hollywood Reporter that “we have a crackling on-air chemistry, and a crackling off-air chemistry, too … I think that pretty much says it, doesn’t it?”
