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.

They tied the knot on January 24, 1989, in Washington. Their wedding had been attended by their closest friends and family.
