NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel wed his “longtime love and girlfriend” Mary Forrest Friday.
Engel confirmed the news Friday evening in a celebratory Twitter post: “So happy. Just got married! To @MaryKForrest. My longtime love and girlfriend.”
The foreign correspondent met Forrest five years ago during her time as a producer on Martha Stewart‘s show when he appeared as a guest, according to Page Six. Engel and Forrest wed in a civil ceremony at New York City Hall.
The 41-year-old and his new bride are expecting their first child, a son, this fall.
A small cocktail reception for family and friends is planned for next week in celebration of the nuptials, and the newlyweds plan to honeymoon after Engel’s Nepal documentary airs next month.
So happy. Just got married! To @MaryKForrest . My longtime love and girlfriend.
