A rep for the 34-year-old comedian confirmed to US Weekly that the pair will marry.

A close friend of the star revealed that he had a crush on Newsom before they met, saying: "He liked her music and would go to her shows. He had the biggest crush on her.

"She respects what he does with his songs with comedy troupe Lonely Island. She's so proud of everything that he has accomplished."

Samberg starred as a travelling American hippie last year in BBC Three's Cuckoo, which became the most-watched comedy launch in the channel's history

He is currently working on a pilot for an untitled Fox comedy about a group of New York City detectives.
