When Seth Meyers decided to propose to his longtime girlfriend Alexi Ashe, he did not want to do it in a typical, boring fashion. Nay: the wonderful Weekend Update correspondent for Saturday Night Live went about it in a much more Pinterest-worthy, animal-loving fashion, which he revealed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon the other night.
On the show (which he will take over as of February), Meyers described how he “tied [the ring] in a bow around our dog’s collar,” then waited for his girlfriend to come home. However, Ashe, a human rights lawyer, was late that evening, so Meyers nervously kept an eye on the dog to ensure he did not suddenly decide “diamonds” sounded similar to “chicken” and swallow it whole.
“I just had to sit there looking at the dog,” he says. “I was like, ‘The dog’s going to eat the ring!'”
Fortunately, the dog did not eat the ring, as this would likely be a much more depressing engagement story if he had. Ashe arrived home, accepted his proposal and everything was 100% gravy, baby. Meyers admitted he cried when she agreed to marry him, which makes him all the more charming (people in love, while slightly gross sometimes, make me so very happy). Congrats to them!
