Andy Samberg is set to wed. The Saturday Night Live cast member and American harpist, pianist, vocalist Joanna Newsom are preparing to settle down after he had popped the question to her. Samberg’s representative has confirmed to Us Weekly magazine that Newsom did accept the proposal following a five year relationship.
Samberg is smitten with the thirty one year old,
“He liked her music and would go to her shows,” a pal revealed last year. “He had the biggest crush on her.”
Newsom gained fame with her sophomore record ‘Ys’ – often considered among the greatest albums of the 2000s. Despite this, it reached just No.134 on the Billboard 200 and No.41 on the UK Albums chart.
One of the world’s most respected musicians, Newsom is equally enamoured by her beau’s musical prowess.
”She respects what he does with his songs,” the source added, referring to Samberg‘s quirky tracks with comedy troupe Lonely Island. “She’s so proud of everything that he has accomplished.”
Samberg has starred in Hot Rod, Space Chimps, That’s My Boy, and Celeste and Jesse Forever.
