In a Vanity Fair interview, the couple said they had been invited to Mar-a-Lago with to dine with the president and his family when he suggested they marry at the estate. 

“That’s when Jared [Kushner] interrupted and said, ‘Hey, you know what? I’ve got my license. I could marry you,’” Scarborough said.

"Why would you marry them?" Trump asked, according to Scarborough. "They could have the President of the United States marry them."

ORIGINAL STORY: MSNBC has confirmed that "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are engaged.

The engagement was first reported by the New York Post's Page Six on Thursday. Regular panelist Harold Ford Jr. offered his congratulations at the top of Thursday's show. Brzezinski thanked him before fellow co-host Willie Geist joked that Ford was congratulating the pair on the show's ratings.
