Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, hosts of the political insider favorite "Morning Joe" on MSNBC, are engaged to be married.

The New York Post first reported early Thursday that they "got engaged this past weekend during a romantic trip to the south of France and Monaco," where the two were celebrating Brzezinski's 50th birthday.

On that day's show, the panelists congratulated Scarborough and Brzezinski on their "ratings," a cheeky reference to the engagement, but their actual relationship was never discussed.

Later in the morning, a Variety Fair article featured an interview with the couple and they confirmed the news.

Scarborough later posted on Twitter thanking their well-wishers.

The two have long remained coy about the nature of their relationship, and despite multiple allusions, Thursday's news is the first official confirmation about the couple being an item.

Both Brzezinski and Scarborough are divorced from their respective spouses and each have children.
