Saturday Night Live star Seth Meyers is engaged to be married! Meyers, the future Late Night host popped the question to longtime girlfriend Alexi Ashe. The couple met at a wedding a few years ago, and have been together ever since.
Alexi, a lawyer, and the 39-year old comedian have been thinking about marriage for a while. According to sources, “He’s known that she’s The One for awhile, but it was all about timing.” Another source added, “He’s very excited for the next phase of his life.”
Seth Meyers is preparing to start a new phase in his career, so it seems about right that he start a new phase of his love life as well! Meyers just completed his final full season of Saturday Night Live and is preparing to take over Late Night from Jimmy Fallon, who is replacing Jay Leno on The Tonight Show in 2014. Seth Meyers will remain as the head writer on SNL through the fall.
Seth’s schedule will be easing up with Late Night, and as one source puts it, “He wanted to do it after SNL wrapped [because] he didn’t want to be an absentee fiance. Her family loves him.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
