Andy Samberg and Joanna Newsom Engaged
Posted on February 26 2013
Andy Samberg proposed to his longtime love Joanna Newsom. “I can confirm that Andy Samberg and Joanna Newsom are engaged,” Carrie Byalick, Samberg’s publicist, verified in an email. The couple has been dating for about five years.
On Saturday, Newsom, 31, attended the Independent Spirit Awards with Samberg, 34, which the comedian hosted. Newsom was spotted wearing a diamond engagement ring on her left finger, sparking rumors. The ring appears to be a vintage-inspired solitaire engagement ring with a round center diamond.
Samberg joined the cast of SNL in 2005 as a featured player. Samberg is also a member of the comedy troupe The Lonely Island. The group is known for ‘Like a Boss,’ Grammy nominated “I’m on a Boat,’ and Emmy-winning ‘Dick in a Box,’ which featured Justin Timberlake.
Newsom is proficient in voice, harp, piano, and harpsichord. She has released three albums and has appeared as a guest on Austin City Limits and Portlandia.
This will be the first marriage for both.
