Who is Andy Samberg?
Born on August 18, 1978, in Berkeley, California, as David Andrew Samberg, the actor gained fame as a member of the comedy troupe The Lonely Island and later as a cast member on Saturday Night Live (SNL). His rise to stardom came with a unique blend of humor and creativity, leading him to various successful projects in the entertainment industry.
He is in the comedy band The Lonely Island with Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, who are close friends from youth. Samberg also appeared on and wrote for the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live from 2005 to 2012. He and the other people in his group are credited with making the SNL Digital Shorts famous.
He played Jake Peralta on the police sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which ran on Fox and then NBC from 2013 to 2021. He also directed the show. In 2013, he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy for his work on the show.
Who is Andy Samberg married to?
Andy Samberg is married to the very talented singer Joanna Newsom. Her hobbies include singing, writing music, and playing the harp and piano. People have called her music “progressive folk,” “indie folk,” and “baroque pop.” It has elements of both folk music and classical music.
Her parents were both doctors and artists, and they raised her in Northern California. People say she wasn't allowed to watch TV when she was a kid. Instead, she got lost in music. Joanna started taking piano lessons when she was 4 years old and began learning harp when she was 8.
Andy admired Joanna before he met her. He said on Conan, “Before we met, I was a huge fan of her music.” Now I think it's amazing when she plays. I unwind by lying on the floor.”
Along with writing, Joanna has also been in two TV shows, Portlandia and Inherent Vice. Andy's shows Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping even had her in them.
How did Andy and Joanna meet?
When Newsom went on Late Night with Seth Meyers, she talked about how she and Samberg met after one of her shows. Each of them had been a “big fan” of the other before they met.
“Fred Armisen brought him to one of my shows, and I had just been with my band backstage, like an hour before, watching [The Lonely Island's] ‘Just 2 Guyz,'” said Newsom. “He has a very small part. He makes Steve look like a c—… And he was a little shy when I met him. I told him, “Oh my God, you're Steve the c—!” He always says, “I saw what looked like heart bubbles.”
Andy and Joanna's Wedding
After dating for five years, Samberg and Newsom told PEOPLE in February 2013 that they were getting married.
They got married in Big Sur, California, in September 2013. Newsom wore a Zac Posen dress, and Adam Sandler, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and other famous people were there as guests.
Samberg joked to PEOPLE the next January, “I liked it, and I put a ring on it.” He also said of their honeymoon in the Maldives, “It was incredible.” It was cool.”
Do Andy and Joanna have Kids
A rep for Samberg and Newsom confirmed PEOPLE in August 2017 that the couple had a girl.
It's not easy to be a first-time parent, but the couple worked together to make things easier. “You just have to lean into it,” Samberg told iNews in 2018. “After a long day with a baby, all I want to do is watch TV with my wife. Something like Wild Wild Country.” So we can pay attention to the problems of other people. We look for the funny side of everything.
Since then, they seem to have gotten better at being parents. In 2021, Samberg informed PEOPLE, “We have a 3-year-old, so you make breakfast. We have a small playgroup that we have going with a few other families, so we make sure we get her over to that in time.”
Both Samberg and Newsom work during the day. “Then the kid comes home, and that's it,” he said. “You make dinner, bath time, and bedtime, and you collapse.”
