Comedian Seth Meyers fell in love with Alexi Ashe the very first time he saw her. Today, they are married and the proud parents of a baby boy. Ashe is an idealistic human rights lawyer who fell ill on her wedding day and almost did not make it down the aisle.
Though Seth Meyers is known for speaking out about nearly every topic, he is pretty quiet about his personal life. Almost to the point where very few people know who Seth Meyers is married to. Well, Seth Meyers’ wife is Alexi Ashe, and she avoids the limelight just as much as her husband courts it! The story of how Alexi Ashe and Seth Meyers met is more of a rom-com rather than real life. They met at a wedding and hit it off immediately. Meyers remembered the night saying, “I met her at Chris Kattan’s wedding. Her sister worked in the set design department of Saturday Night Live.” All we know for sure is that Meyers definitely lucked out!
Alexi Ashe’s age is 33, and she is a human rights attorney who graduated from Southwestern University. When Meyers was asked if it love at first sight, he replied, “Yes it was. I had a sense that she was the closest I’d ever met to someone who I could see myself with. Pretty much right away.” After dating for five years, they decided to tie the knot and settle down. But, it almost didn’t happen! Their wedding was in jeopardy because Ashe was struck with a case of food poisoning at their rehearsal dinner and had to go to the emergency room. Things looked so bad that a nurse told Ashe, “You’re not getting married today.” However, the determined bride was not going to let anything ruin her big day!
Baby Boy Arrives

Three years after getting married, Ashe gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and the couple named him Ashe Olson Meyers. While his wife was pregnant, Meyers asked actress Jennifer Garner for some advice on what to expect. Garner reportedly told him not to take anybody’s advice or follow the words of a book, “It’s not up to you dude. It doesn’t matter, let it go, don’t worry about it. You’re going to struggle…just like for everyone else.”
Alexi Ashe’s Instagram account is full of pictures of her with Meyers, their baby boy, and at red carpet events. While Seth Meyers uses his gift of the gab and making people double over with laughter, Ashe grounds him. That fateful first meeting between Ashe and Meyers turned into a loving and lasting relationship!
