Personal Life

Samberg is married to musician Joanna Newsom. He once described himself as a "superfan". They met at one of her concerts. After five years of dating, Samberg proposed to her in February 2013, and they married on September 21, 2013 in Big Sur, California, with Saturday Night Live co-star Seth Meyers serving as the wedding's groomsman. In March 2014, Samberg and Newsom purchased the Moorcrest estate in the Beachwood Canyon area of Los Angeles, California. They also own a home in the West Village in New York City. The couple announced the birth of their daughter in August 2017.

Early Life

Samberg was born in Berkeley, California on August 18, 1978. His mother, Marjorie "Margi" (née Marrow), is an elementary school teacher, and his father, Joe, is a photographer. He has two sisters, Johanna and Darrow. At age 5, he told his parents that he wanted to change his name to Andy. Samberg was raised in a Jewish family; he considers himself as "not particularly religious."In a 2019 episode of Finding Your Roots, hosted by Henry Louis Gates Jr., Samberg discovered that his mother Marjorie, who was adopted by Jewish parents, is the biological daughter of a Sicilian (Italian) Catholic Salvatore Maida, who immigrated in 1925, and German-Jewish refugee Ellen Philipsborn, who had come to the US in 1938; they met in San Francisco. Samberg's adoptive grandfather was industrial psychologist and philanthropist Alfred J. Marrow, through whom he is a third cousin to US Senator Tammy Baldwin.Samberg attended elementary school with his future Brooklyn Nine Nine co-star Chelsea Peretti. He discovered Saturday Night Live as a child while sneaking past his parents to watch professional wrestling on television. He was obsessed with the show and his devotion to comedy was frustrating to teachers, who felt he was distracted from his schoolwork.Samberg graduated from Berkeley High School in 1996, where he became interested in creative writing and has stated that writing classes "were the ones that [he] put all [his] effort into... that's what [he] cared about and that's what [he] ended up doing". He attended college at University of California, Santa Cruz for two years before transferring to New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where he graduated in 2000. While at NYU, writer Murray Miller was his roommate.
