After five years of keeping their relationship hush hush, comedian Andy Samberg is officially engaged to be married to long time girlfriend Joanna Newsom.
“I can confirm that Andy Samberg and Joanna Newsom are engaged,” Samberg’s publicist, Carrie Byalick, said via email.
Indie singer/songwriter Joanna Newsom was spotted on Saturday with a noticeable diamond ring on her left ring finger at the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, California. However, is is unclear as to when the former SNL star popped the big question.
According to USA Today, the comedian and “I’m on a Boat” rapper had eyes for Newsom before the two even starting dating. They met through mutual friends. “He liked her music and would go to her shows,” a close friend told US previously. “He had the biggest crush on her.”
However, it appears the feelings are definitely mutual. “She respects what he does with his songs,” the friend said. “She’s so proud of everything that he has accomplished.”
A wedding date has yet to be announced. But, let’s hope the ceremony isn’t as hush hush as the relationship, now that the cat is officially out of the bag.
Congrats are in order for the happy couple! We wish them nothing but the best!
