(Newser) – Ronan Farrow has been making headlines again surrounding the release of his new book, Catch and Kill, and its allegations on Harvey Weinstein and NBC News. But the 31-year-old investigative journalist is garnering buzz for another reason, though Catch and Kill is peripherally involved: He's engaged, and he proposed to now-fiance Jon Lovett using a draft of his book as the proposal conduit. When Farrow was still in the early writing stages, he passed along a draft for Lovett, a 37-year-old podcast host who worked as a speechwriter for former President Obama, to read, writing on one of the pages, "Marriage? On the moon or even here on Earth."

People reports that the two had a long-standing joke about taking their vows on the lunar surface. The magazine also notes the couple keeps a pretty low profile, though for Lovett's birthday in August, Farrow did post on Instagram a picture of them together (on a rocky, moonlike landscape, it should be pointed out), along with the caption: "Happy birthday to straight shooter respected on all sides @jonlovett. He's okay, I guess!" (Read more Ronan Farrow stories.)
