Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC's Morning Joe have resoundingly confirmed their long-rumored romantic relationship: with an engagement. MSNBC confirmed the news Thursday, per Politico, after Page Six reported the pair had gotten engaged during a weekend trip to France. Rumors of a romance first surfaced last year, shortly after Brzezinski split from her husband of 23 years. Scarborough—who split from his second wife of 12 years in 2013—fueled the rumors last month, telling the Hollywood Reporter the co-stars have "a crackling off-air chemistry … I think that pretty much says it." The couple was congratulated on Thursday's show. (More Joe Scarborough stories.)
