Newsom, 35, told Larry King that she and Samberg, 38, were thinking about children in a December 2015 interview. “Little harpist Samberg, thank you for putting that image in my head,” she said. 

She also gushed about her husband. “He’s my favorite person in the world. He’s the person I would most want to hang out with at any given moment,” she said. “He’s probably the biggest superfan of my music.”

The actor also had babies on the brain around the same time. “I love babies,” Samberg told reporters at the Fox All-Star Party in January 2016. “I would love a baby someday.”

Newsom was a fan of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star, too. “She respects what he does with his songs,” the insider said. “She’s so proud of everything that he has accomplished.”
