Katie Couric walks her new dachshund puppy in the Hamptons
Katie Couric appeared to have a cute new dog while out for a walk in the Hamptons on Friday.
The 57-year-old news anchor had a small brown and black dachshund chasing her as she walked around.
She looked relaxed in a summery tiered dress covered in a busy floral pattern for the outing.
Katie’s sleeveless ensemble showed off her arms and featured a rose-tinted top with a different pattern.
Her shoulder-length strawberry blonde hair was tied to the side and framed her large black cat-eye sunglasses.
She completed the casual look with a set of gray flip flops and she wore several bracelets on one of her wrists.
Katie held her new pup on a leash, and she even held the cute pie in her arms as she stopped to chat with a friend.
The former Today Show presenter was spending time in the Hamptons after her husband, John Molner, drew a lot of ire online after he confused the Supreme Court recently overturning Roe v. Wade of 1973 with the cancellation of his flight.
In an Instagram post featuring a photo of a Delta aircraft in flight, he captioned it as “a sad day in our country.”
“Roe v Wade has been repealed,” he continued. “Furthermore, the Court struck down New York’s gun safety laws prohibiting people from carrying concealed weapons. And Delta Airlines continues its descent to become the worst of America’s major airlines, canceling dozens of flights daily, stranding passengers for days and holding them hostage to higher fares. It’s not as bad as rolling back reproductive rights, but it’s aggravating enough.
The comments he received included a lot of vitriol over his decision to associate his personal disadvantages with women who lost their abortion rights in several states across the United States.
Katie and Molner, a financier, started dating in 2011 and got engaged in September 2013.
The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony at their Hamptons home in June 2014.
Katie, who worked for Yahoo News until 2017, let her contract expire at the end of that period so she could focus on running her own Katie Couric Media business with her husband.
