Facts About Seth Meyers Wife
Marriage to Seth Meyers
Alexi Ashe and Seth Meyers got married September 1, 2013, and have been together ever since. According to Meyers, they met at the wedding of Chris Kattan, his co-Saturday Night Live cast member. As the story goes, Alexi’s sister worked in the set design department of Saturday Night Live so she (Alexi) attended the wedding as her guest and there, she met her future husband.
According to Seth, she was the closest he had ever met to someone who he could see himself with and as soon as he met Alexi, he loved her at first sight so they hit it off immediately.
After five years of dating, they got engaged and subsequently tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony which took place at Chickemmoo Farm in Martha’s Vineyard, an island in Massachusetts. On their wedding day, Alexi Ashe was dressed in a beautiful Carolina Herrera custom-made lace wedding dress which was at the time, the talk of the town.
It has been five years that they became husband and wife and they are still going strong while the couple at whose marriage ceremony they met has already gone their separate ways.
During their rehearsal dinner just before their wedding, Alexi ate a bad oyster which resulted in food poisoning and consequently led to her being rushed to the hospital for medical attention. However, against the advice of a nurse who told her to cancel her wedding, she continued with the ceremony.
The legal practitioner had her first child named Ashe Olsen Meyers on March 27, 2016. Being a feminist always makes the realization that your children will not bear your last name a very bitter pill to swallow.
However, Alexi Ashe came up with a brilliant solution to this problem by giving her child the first name Ashe, thereby ensuring that he has both her’s and her husband’s family names. Although everyone cannot get away with this, Ashe Meyers is actually a cute name for a boy.
On April 8, 2018, Alexi had her second son named Axel Strahl. Recalling the birth of Axel, during his late-night show on Monday, April 9, 2018, Seth said he was born in the lobby of their apartment. He had called 911 and before he could finish his one-minute conversation with them, the baby had arrived.
Not long after then, the New York Police Department and fire department got to Alexi Ashe and helped cut the umbilical cord while their neighbors ensured that the newborn remained warm by putting towels in the dryer.
