It looks like Ellie Kemper will need some Bridesmaids of her own.
The actress, 31, who starred in the hit comedy earlier this year, is engaged to Michael Koman, her boyfriend of a few years, she confirmed to Conan O'Brien on Conan Wednesday night.
"I want to mention something," O'Brien said to Kemper, who also has a supporting role on The Office as Erin Hannon. "It's sort of a big deal around this office. You got engaged."

Melissa McCarthy is no longer just a bridesmaid. She's the bride.
The Mike & Molly Emmy winner and Bridesmaids scene-stealer has some big plans on her plate – from launching her own plus-size fashion line to getting hockey's prized Stanley Cup (for a movie) – during what is already a stellar year for her.
But none of her professional plans can top her favorite pastime, being mom to her two daughters with actor-husband Ben Falcone: Vivian, 4, and Georgette, 1½. McCarthy tells the Hollywood Reporter that being a mother actually helps her feel less insecure about her looks.
"The stupid stuff like what I wear or how I look I can't control, so I just try not to give too much energy to it," she says, calling her body a work in progress after giving birth to Georgette. "At 20, I would have been like: 'Don't they like me? Was it my hair?' At 41, I think the things that define me, I hope, are a lot more than those kinds of petty things."

Bridesmaids has won over audiences, as has its surprising leading man.
Chris O'Dowd plays Kristen Wiig's love interest, Officer Rhodes, in the hit comedy, which has turned the Irish actor into a breakout star – and reluctant sex symbol. While the 31-year-old is overjoyed by the success of the movie, he's still getting used to all his newfound female fans.
1. He's shocked by his sex symbol status
Audiences – particularly women – have been falling in love with O'Dowd. Many of his Twitter followers have been expressing their affection for the actor, even going so far as to Tweet marriage proposals. O'Dowd, who has a girlfriend, is baffled by all the attention. "I find it a little ridiculous … particularly women finding me attractive is a new sensation," he said recently on Conan.

She plays a bride in the new comedy Bridesmaids, but in real life Maya Rudolph has more experience as a bridesmaid – for a very unlucky bride-to-be.
"My girlfriend was getting married and we were all about to go to Mexico," says Rudolph, 38, who costars in the new comedy with Kristen Wiig. "We had this whole trip planned; we all put money in for the place, the airplane, everything."
"My girlfriend got so sick that she was on antibiotics and was instructed not to fly. The bride couldn't fly. Everything was paid for, so we all had to go. So we all went without her. It was kind of pathetic and sad."
