Comedic actor Andy Samberg, 34, is now engaged to his singer-songwriter girlfriend of five years, Joanna Newsom.
According to People, Newsom, 31, is a musician who besides from songwriting, plays the harp, piano, and harpsichord. While Newsom's music is more serious than Samberg's silly comedic songs with band The Lonely Island, Newsom loves and respects all of his work.
A source told Us Weekly, “She respects what he does with his songs. She's so proud of everything that he has accomplished."
The magazine also reports that before the pair met, Samberg was constantly telling friends how much he wanted to meet her. A source shares, “He liked her music and would go to her shows. He had the biggest crush on her.”
The former Saturday Night Live star and his fiancee haven't been in the limelight often, as they prefer to stay home together for peaceful date nights. A source added to Us Weekly, “They have great chemistry.” A date for their big day has not been announced.
