The funnyman is settling down!
SNL might be like one big family, but Seth Meyers has decided to start one of his own, by getting engaged! Us Weekly broke the news that Meyers has popped the question to his longtime girlfriend Alexi Ashe, confirmed by a spokesperson for the comedian. The pair have been together for several years, before they decided to move on to the next level.

Ashe is also Meyers’s lawyer and the two met at a wedding several years ago. That might have been a sign, as the relationship has been steady as a rock ever since and it was only a matter of time for Meyers to propose, according to a source for the magazine. Well, a matter of time and timing, more specifically. With Meyers moving on from SNL and taking over Late Night from Jimmy Fallon in 2014, said timing was apparently perfect. He will stay on as head writer of the sketch comedy format through the fall, but his acting gig is done, meaning that the funnyman will be free to take on his engagement duties.
The couple have been together for several years now.
"With Late Night, his schedule will be slowly easing up," the source explains. "He wanted to do it after SNL wrapped [because] he didn't want to be an absentee fiance. Her family loves him." Looks like things are all falling into place for Meyers and his ladylove. Congratulations to the happy couple!
Looks like congratulations are in order.
