Andy Samberg, who quickly rose to fame on “Saturday Night Live” with his spot-on impressions (Mark Wahlberg) and hilarious digital shorts (“Dick In A Box” with Justin Timberlake was especially memorable), is engaged to musician Joanna Newsom.
The couple have been together for five years, and after Newsom was spotted at the Film Independent Spirit Awards this weekend with a lovely diamond on her finger, rumors began to fly. A rep for Samberg confirmed the news yesterday.
Samberg was reportedly enamored of Newsom right after they first met; a source told Us Weekly that he went to as many shows of hers as he could.
“He had the biggest crush on her,” the source said.
No word yet on when the nuptials will be; Samberg currently has four professional projects in the works, including voicing a character in “Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2” and “Grown-Ups 2”.
