“Hey y.all. The world is so screwed up I thought I’d just post this #tbt when your parents used to bring you to a photo studio (Olan Mills?) and they’d have you put your arms on a leather bolster or whatever they’re called to capture you in all your beauty,” she captioned the adorable picture.

While Katie looks undoubtedly cute, some fans teased the author by saying that she looks the same at 62.

In his memory, the author took to Instagram to share an emotional message on what would be their 30th anniversary. Her message read:

“If the soft breeze fans your cheek, it shall be my breath; or the cool air cools your throbbing temples, it shall be my spirit passing by.” - From a letter by Sullivan Ballou to his wife Sarah in 1861. He was 32 and died one week later in the first battle of Bull Run. This was one of Jay’s favorite letters, read to “Ashokan Farewell”(such a beautiful song) in Ken Burn’s Civil War series. Happy Birthday, Jay."

Couric is currently married to banker John Molner.
