Former Saturday Night Live cast member Andy Samberg and harpist Joanna Newsom have always seemed to be an unlikely pair. Musically, the two are about as far apart as two people can get and still be musical, with Samberg recording funny, entertaining songs with the Lonely Island and Newsom preferring to go in unique directions with her voice and her harp. Regardless, the two have known each other and have dated for quite some time and have decided to give marriage a shot.

That’s right, Newsom and Samberg are going to tie the knot. The couple’s rep confirmed the news on to US Weekly on Monday after 31-year-old Newsom was spotted over the weekend at the Independent Spirit Awards wearing a blingy ring. The nuptials will be a first for both Newsom and Samberg.

Samberg put in a lot of groundwork to woo Newsom. The 34-year-old Celeste and Jesse Forever actor used to show up at Newsom’s shows to watch her play. Eventually, he was able to meet the singer through mutual friends and the rest has been history. When the two have been photographed out and about, they always seem to be extremely comfortable with one another, and if the story of their meeting is so cute, I hope the couple have an equally cute engagement night story.

Pop Blend would like to wish the couple the very best as they start tackling wedding plans. Newsom is known for her quirky fashion sense, and I can’t wait to see what sort of dress she picks out.
