Alexi Ashe and Seth Meyers have had their moments. From having a baby in an apartment to tying the engagement ring on the dog fretting that the dog was going to eat it, things are often funny in the Meyers household. But despite the comedy bits, the duo make for a lovely pair. While Meyer rose to fame, first through SNL and later as a late-night host, Ashe is an attorney who works with victims of gender violence at Sanctuary for Families.

Alexi Ashe is happily married to Seth Meyers. The pair met at Chris Kattan’s wedding in June 2008 and started dating soon after. Meyers proposed in 2011 and did it in style.

The pair had their first child Ashe Olsen Meyers was born on the 27th of March 2016 at Lenox Hill Hospital. The pair had their second child on the 8th of April 2018, in less than ideal circumstances. In a hilarious episode on the Tonight show, Meyers revealed that Ashe had given birth to Axel Strahl, in their apartment’s lobby. The pair geared to go to the hospital after suffering from severe contractions, but couldn’t make it past the lobby.
“I looked at my wife, and the only way I can describe how my wife looked, was she looked like someone who was hiding a baby in a pair of sweatpants… We undressed her and the baby was just out. The head of the baby was out. I called 911 – this is how fast it happened – I called 911 and over the course of a minute conversation, I basically said, ‘We’re about to have a baby, we’re having a baby, we had a baby.”
The family of four live in Greenwich Village in New York.
