Today show host Jill Martin has announced that she and banker Erik Brooks are engaged again. A year and a half after they called off their first engagement.

Jill, 44, and Erik had begun dating in 2017 and got engaged for the first time in 2019 — but in May of 2020, Jill announced that they had called it quits, explaining that the pandemic had ‘taken a toll on so many aspects of life’ and that it became ‘too difficult’ to maintain their relationship with her in New York and him in Boston.
