Speaking of people quitting TV shows and getting engaged, former Saturday Night Live staple Andy Samberg is engaged to his singer girlfriend Joanna Newsom. We suggest she be the one to pick the music for the ceremony, and he pick the tunes for the reception.

The pair have been together five years, but it all started with some good, old-fashioned stalkish behavior. “He liked her music and would go to her shows,” a friend told Us. “He had the biggest crush on her.”

She’s even okay with his Lonely Island antics, with the source saying “she respects what he does with his songs.” Note she didn’t say “like” or “enjoy.” No word on wedding details, but if they follow the Christina Applegate model, it should be in 2016 or so.
