Orszag engaged to ABC News reporter

Peter Orszag, the Office of Management and Budget Director, is engaged.

Peter Orszag, the Office of Management and Budget Director, is engaged.

(CNN) - The White House's so-called "money-hunk" is engaged.

Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag is set to marry ABC News correspondent Bianna Golodryga, Golodryga announced on ABC's Good Morning America Tuesday.

The couple first met at the White House Correspondents Dinner last May, and the man who White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel once said "made nerdy sexy" soon won Golodryga's heart.

"[He's] tall, dark and he could say Golodryga and spell it after our first date. That is a winner in my book," she said.

The 31-year-old Golodryga, has worked for ABC since 2007 and mainly reports on business issues. Orszag, 41, is the former director of the Congressional Budget Office and a former veteran of the Clinton administration.

    Why Is everybody down on Peter I think he is definitely a hottie! Sheesh you don't have to be Brad Pitt to be hot or have a body like The "Roc" or something to be called hot, why can't a very intelligent man be hot believe it or not intelligence makes a man hot to me, not to mention he is good looking so i find him extremely hot with those 2 combinations!!!

    Rather than this Non Story, CNN journalist should spend time vetting the real stories. For example, why wouldn't they acknowledge that bit took this administration 8 months to put forward a TSA Director to be nominated rather than focus on Senator Demint's objection to the nomination for a valid concern?

    As news followers, we need to demand and expect more from these INDEPENDENT news sources.

    Get a grip people. They're announcing happy news. If you've read it right, he's a money hunk. Congratulations to both of you and may you have many years of happiness.

    Be glad she wasn't a party crasher like the other people.

    Dear CNN webmaster:

    You posted this in the wrong place. It obviously belongs in the entertainment section.

    It's news in the sense that the revolving door between the Administration and the major media outlets has turned into a bridal suite. Honest to god, how can we expect fair, objective reporting when they're all married to one another? This is like the Washington Post's infamous secret "salons" between liberal reporters and Administration officials, but with a speed dating component built in.

    Sorry, you are all so sallow, critical, and cruel. There is more to a person and life than superficiality of looks. Why not just stop showing your ugly side and say something that makes a person feel better about themselves-or is that too much to ask?

    Orszag a hunk? C'mon CNN. I know you're hopelessly infatuated with your Democrats (being that you're in their hip pocket and everything), but, really, this is over the top even for you.
