Mum-of-two Katie Couric is a doting mother. She never misses a chance to show off her daughters and recently took to Instagram to share a throwback picture of her daughter, Ellie.
Katie Couric was heartbroken when her first husband, John Paul Monahan passed away from colon cancer in 1998. However, he left her with two beautiful daughters, Ellie and Carrie, whom she loves dearly.
The journalist recently took to the social media site, Instagram, to share a throwback picture of her oldest daughter, Ellie. The picture was a baby picture of the 23-year-old.
"#tbt snacking with Ellie! #wheredoesthetimego #thursday PS My upper lip disappears when I smile. But so does this emoji’s," read Katie's caption.

Earlier this year it was revealed by Katie that Ellie Monahan and her boyfriend Mark Dobrosky were engaged. Mark used the same engagement ring, Katie's late husband Jay Monahan had proposed to her with, to pop the question to Ellie.
Katie and her late husband had met while she was a correspondent for Today. He had been a lawyer in Washington, D.C.
