(NEW YORK) — Saturday Night Live alum Seth Meyers recently popped the question to longtime girlfriend Alexi Ashe, and she’s said yes, ABC News Radio has confirmed.
Although there are no details on the proposal, according to Us Weekly, the forthcoming Late Night host and Ashe met at a wedding “several years ago.”
A source told the magazine about Meyers, “He’s very excited for the next phase of his life. He’s known that she’s The One for a while, but it was all about timing.”
“With Late Night, his schedule will be slowly easing up,” the source continued. “He wanted to do it after SNL wrapped [because] he didn’t want to be an absentee fiancé. Her family loves him.”
The timing could in fact be perfect, as Meyers steps down from SNL to become the new host of Late Night when Jimmy Fallon moves to The Tonight Show in 2014. The premiere date for Late Night with Seth Meyers has yet to be announced, but it’s expected that both Meyers and Fallon will take over their new jobs sometime around NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics next February.
