Seth Meyers Engaged: 'Saturday Night Live' Star Set To Wed Girlfriend Alexi Ashe


Congratulations to Seth Meyers!

The "Saturday Night Live" star and future "Late Night" host, 39, proposed to longtime girlfriend Alexi Ashe, a rep for the couple confirmed to Us Weekly. The pair reportedly met at a wedding several years ago.

"He's very excited for the next phase of his life," a source tells the magazine. "He's known that she's The One for awhile, but it was all about timing."

In a 2012 interview with Elle, Meyers said of Ashe, "She's a human rights lawyer. She works for the Brooklyn district attorney fighting sex trafficking. It really takes away my ability to say I had a hard day at work."

He also noted, "When my girlfriend and I talk about being happy, I'll get choked up, which I think is the greatest gift you can give a girlfriend."
