seth meyers engaged alexi ashe Seth Meyers engaged to longtime girlfriend Alexi Ashe

Congratulations are in order for Seth Meyers. The “Saturday Night Live” alum and soon-to-be “Late Night” host just popped the question to girlfriend Alexi Ashe.

Though Ashe and Meyers have been together for several years, Ashe isn’t a part of the Hollywood scene; she’s a human rights lawyer. The couple lives together in New York and own a dog named Frisbee.

According to Us Weekly‘s sources, this engagement is a long time coming. “He’s very excited for the next phase of his life,” the insider says. “He’s known that she’s The One for awhile, but it was all about timing.”

Timing has never been better now that Meyers is taking a stable job replacing Jimmy Fallon on “Late Night.” “With ‘Late Night,’ his schedule will be slowly easing up,” the source says. “He wanted to do it after ‘SNL’ wrapped [because] he didn’t want to be an absentee fianc�. Her family loves him.”
