Talk about a Weekend Update.

Saturday Night Live star and head writer Seth Meyers is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, lawyer Alexi Ashe, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

It's been a busy year for Meyers, 39, who will take over Jimmy Fallon's spot as the host of Late Night next year, when Fallon replaces Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show.

When the news was announced in May, Meyers said in a statement, "12:30 on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice."
