The “Morning Joe” host and the WABC Eyewitness News investigative reporter were married in 1993 and have two teenage daughters together.

“Mika’s divorce was finalized in the past year,” an MSNBC spokesperson confirmed to Page Six Thursday. “She’s really grateful that it was done amicably and in private. This has, of course, been a painful time for her family. So right now she is focused on her two teenage daughters, and on continuing to heal.”

Now that Brzezinski and her co-host Joe Scarborough are both divorced, rumors have surfaced that the two are considering going public with their rumored romance.

“Everybody at 30 Rock knows they are a couple,” the source said. “They are constantly together, they arrive and leave events together, even on weekends. They are each other’s publicists and finish each other’s sentences. It’s the worst-kept secret in TV.”

In October 2013, Scarborough divorced his wife Susan Waren after 12 years of marriage.
