Meyers and his lawyer love met at a wedding several years ago and have been together ever since. Back in 2011, a source told Us that marriage was definitely "on the horizon" for the New York-based couple. "They are incredibly solid," the insider said.

Indeed, another source tells Us that Meyers' proposal was a long time coming. "He's very excited for the next phase of his life," the insider reveals. "He's known that she's The One for awhile, but it was all about timing."

The moment certainly seems to be right, as Meyers just completed his final full season of Saturday Night Live and is preparing to take over Late Night from Jimmy Fallon, who is replacing Jay Leno on The Tonight Show in 2014. (Meyers will remain as the head writer on SNL through the fall.)

"With Late Night, his schedule will be slowly easing up," the source explains. "He wanted to do it after SNL wrapped [because] he didn't want to be an absentee fiance. Her family loves him."
