The Daily Show’s John Oliver is engaged to his girlfriend of two years, Kate Norley! Read more on the couple’s engagement below.
John Oliver proposed to his girlfriend of two years, Kate Norley, on a trip to the Caribbean in July.
“We were in St. Thomas on holiday,” Oliver, 33, said of the engagement.
Oliver and Norley met in 2008 at the Republican National Convention. John Oliver was covering the event and Norley was campaigning.
“I finally made a move,” Norley, an Iraq War vet, stated. Oliver adds, “I got seduced.”
“I was a medic in the Army,” Norley said. “It was difficult, but right now it’s nice that I get to spend time with the love of my life.”
“It’s the most emasculating thing I could possibly do to go out with someone who has actually done something valuable with their life,” Oliver said jokingly.
“He’s got a forum,” Norley says. “We still have troops on the ground. No matter whether there are two or 200,000, we have to make sure our hearts and minds are with what they’re doing.”
The couple will marry “some time next year.”
Congrats to John Oliver and Kate Norley on their engagement!
