American talk show host Katie Couric has made light of her recent engagement to John Molner saying that she wants Honey Boo Boo at her wedding.

Speaking on The Wendy Williams Show she said that she wants one particular American celebrity at her wedding: "I want Honey Boo Boo as my flower girl!”

Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, is a reality TV star and child beauty pageant contestant who is quite opinionated given the fact that she’s eight-years-old.

Couric also praised her fiancé on his engagement ring choice: "John went [to the jewelery store], they put out 12 rings.

“He said, 'That's Katie's ring.' Ironically, three years earlier, I had said to the jeweller, 'If I ever, ever get remarried, that's the ring I want'.

"And that's what he got. It's very kismet!"
