Former Saturday Night Live funny man, Andy Samberg is taking a big step.
This next step isn’t in his career but in his personal life. He popped the question to long time girlfriend Joanna Newsom and the two are engaged to be wed.
Reported by People.com, the two have been dating for five years and Newsom is a singer/songwriter.
The two walked the red carpet together on Saturday at the Independent Spirit Awards which Samberg hosted.
Before the couple even met, Samberg had a crush on her; it was confirmed to US Weekly last year that Samberg and Newsom met through mutual friends and he would always attend her shows. He was and still is a big fan of her music.
Newsom appreciates Samberg’s work just as much as he does her. She is proud of everything he has accomplished and respects what he does.
Samberg was made a household name on Saturday Night Live and with his band “The Lonely Island.” He left SNL last year in order to pursue his acting career.
