On her fiance John:
“We have been talking casually about the possibility of getting married. We knew we were in a committed relationship, but we had not really discussed it in concrete terms. When John said he was open to it, I thought, Great, but I also didn”t want to push it in that direction if that wasn”t where he was headed.”

On her engagement ring:
“John had been looking for a ring, and he ended up at a store called Stephen Russell. They showed him a dozen rings; he picked one right away and said that”s Katie”s ring. What he didn”t know was that a number of years ago I had said to Stephen, “If I ever remarry, make sure whoever comes here gets me that ring.” It was the ring John picked out!”

On remarrying:
“My preference was always to get remarried, but I was also open to being in a Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell situation. I have a lot of respect for the institution of marriage; It was very old-fashioned that John proposed. I had absolutely no idea. In a world where we plan everything and you want to be in control of everything, it”s nice for someone else to take control.”
