Samberg was smitten with the 31-year-old musician even before they met through mutual friends. “He liked her music and would go to her shows,” a pal told Us last year. “He had the biggest crush on her.”

Newsom is equally enamored of her beau. “She respects what he does with his songs,” the friend said, referring to Samberg’s quirky tracks (“I’m on a Boat!”) with comedy troupe Lonely Island. “She’s so proud of everything that he has accomplished.”
