Of course, despite knowing at the time, she kept quiet on social media and chose to spend her day as planned, even sharing an adorable anniversary post featuring many clips and moments of the couple from their years together.

John, of course, also showed his support for Katie, especially with a loving anniversary dedication of his own on social media that same day.

While he rarely posts on social media, he has since shared several other photographs of his wife, frequently declaring his love and support for her.

He has also been a staunch supporter of her advocacy for cancer awareness, a cause she took up due to having experienced it in her family and seeing her first husband, Jay Monahan, die of colon cancer.

Katie even detailed John's own experience with the disease, writing in her blog: "My now-husband John had a tumor the size of a coconut on his liver, which was surgically removed just a few months before we got married."

Katie made the announcement on social media alongside a photograph of herself in a hospital robe and a face mask from her radiation appointment.
