She's even smarter than he is.

But just like every comedian, we often wonder about the special woman in their lives. So, who is Seth Meyers’ wife? Here are a few fast facts to know about Alexi Ashe.

1. She’s a human rights attorney.

Ashe is a graduate of Occidental College and Southwestern University School of Law. While in law school, she was a refugee representation legal intern with the non-profit organization Human Rights First.

Since then, she has worked as the ADA in the Brooklyn Sex Crimes Bureau, an advocate for victims of gender violence for Sanctuary for Families, and dedicates her time to stopping human trafficking and domestic violence. And the best part? She does it all pro bono.

2. Her grandparents are Holocaust survivors.

Though we don’t know much about her family life, when she gave birth to her second child in April 2018, she gave her son the middle name “Strahl” after her grandparents. Both were Holocaust survivors who met the day after they were liberated in a hospital in Austria. What a great way to honor your family.

3. She met Meyers at Chris Kattan’s wedding.

Though Kattan is no longer married, according to Meyers, it was love at first sight when the two were introduced in 2008. In an interview with YourTango, Meyers said, “I met her at Chris Kattan’s wedding. Her sister worked in the set design department of Saturday Night Live. Yes it was [love at first sight]. I had a sense that she was the closest I’d ever met to someone who I could see myself with. Pretty much right away.”

4. She had food poisoning at her wedding.

After dating for five years, the two married in July 2013 at Martha’s Vineyard. But the wedding day itself didn’t quite go as planned. Ashe came down with a case of food poisoning after eating oysters at her rehearsal dinner. She was rushed to the emergency room, and against doctor’s orders, attended her wedding.

5. They have two children together.

The couple’s first child, son Ashe Olson Meyers, was born in March 2016.

6. She gave birth to their second child in the lobby of their apartment. 

After Meyers announced that wife Ashe was pregnant in November 2017, the two waited with anticipation for the baby to come.

But Ashe never made it to the hospital and gave birth to their second son, Axel Strahl Meyers, in the lobby of their apartment on April 8, 2018!

Of the birth, Meyers recounted, “But even our doula, Neelu, was saying, like, 'Look this is ... you're going to be fine.' And my wife is saying, 'The baby is coming, the baby is... the baby is out.' At which point Neelu looked and then looked at me and said, 'The baby is out.'"

"...And I looked at my wife. And the only way I can describe how my wife looked was... she looked like someone who was hiding a baby in a pair of sweatpants. It was like somebody was trying to like sneak a baby on a plane.”
