Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are more than just co-hosts on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” They are now husband and wife. 

The two journalists said “I do” Saturday in front of a small group of friends and family at the National Archives in Washington, the home of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

In photos obtained by Vanity Fair, Brzezinski wore a white gown with a sweetheart neckline and polka-dot lace sleeves by designer Michelle Smith. Scarborough looked dapper in a black Zegna suit with a black tie. 

U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland officiated the ceremony.

Scarborough and Brzezinski confirmed their engagement in May 2017, on none other than “Morning Joe.” 

Brzezinski told Vanity Fair that Scarborough’s marriage proposal came during a trip to Antibes, France, in honor of her 50th birthday. During a walk by the Mediterranean, he feigned being winded and asked to take a break. That’s when he busted out the oval-shaped diamond set in platinum.

“When I saw him on one knee, I started laughing nervously, almost hysterically,” Brzezinski said. “And then he asked, and I said, ‘Absolutely.'”

Scarborough and Brzezinski have been an onscreen team for 10 years. “Morning Joe” premiered in April 2007 following the cancellation of “Imus in the Morning.”

Scarborough, 54, a former Florida congressman, left the House of Representatives partway through his fourth term in 2001. He then spent a couple of years practicing law before joining NBC News in 2003. Brzezinski has worked in journalism since shortly after graduating from college and has also reported for ABC and CBS.

Both were married to other people for much of the show’s tenure.

Scarborough has been married twice before, to Melanie Hinton from 1986-1999 and then to former congressional staffer Susan Warren from 2001-2013. He has four children, two from each marriage. Brzezinski, the daughter of Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, was married to James Hoffer, a fellow TV journalist, from 1993-2016. They have two children together.

Brzezinski and Scarborough say they didn’t act on their feelings for each other until after their previous marriages ended.
