Personal life, husband Seth Meyers
Alexi met her future husband, Seth Meyers, at Chris Kattan’s wedding ceremony in 2008 when he married Sunshine Deia Tutt. Chris is a popular American comic book writer and actor; he is also Seth’s former colleague, as they worked together on the show “Saturday Night Live”. The ceremony was decorated by the designers who also create the decorations for “Saturday Night Live,” including Ariel Ashe, Alexi’s sister.
Seth later shared in one of the episodes of this show that he instantly felt something for Alexi, “I felt like she was the closest thing I’d ever met that I could see myself with. Almost immediately’, he looked back on their first meeting. The couple began dating (and Chris Kattan, whose wedding was the event where Alexi and Seth met, divorced his wife in just a year), and in July 2013, Seth proposed, and the couple officially announced their engagement on their social media profiles. The couple married on September 1, 2013 in a ceremony at Martha’s Vineyard.
Did Alexi have to postpone the wedding? What happened?
After the wedding ceremony, Alexi and Seth revealed that they were about to postpone the event due to Alexi’s health issues – she got severe food poisoning right after the rehearsal dinner two days before the wedding.
Alexi was delivered to the emergency room and advised to postpone the wedding ceremony as the nurses were unsure if she would be able to recover that quickly. However, Alexi was determined not to let the guests down, rested well and recovered the next day. She also shared that Chicago Bears team doctor Adam W. Bennett helped her with great advice, so her recovery was so fast. Bennett was also one of the guests at the ceremony.
Kids, Ashe Olsen and Axel Strahl
Alexi gave birth to her first son, Ashe Olsen Meyers, on March 27, 2016. Seth and Alexi did not hesitate to share the happy news and photos of the newborn with their social media followers.
No one expected the appearance of Ashe’s younger brother, Alexi and Seth’s second son, to be so dramatic. According to Seth and Alexi, they were relaxing in their apartment on April 8, 2018, when Alexi suddenly felt strong contractions – they called for help and went to the lobby, but Axel was born before emergency services could arrive. The neighbors, hearing the noise in the lobby, helped Alexi, supported her and brought towels. ‘Axel was born in the hall of our apartment building. Within ten minutes we were surrounded by NYPD, NYFD and EMTs who all made us feel safe and protected,” Seth recalled on his Instagram account that day. Seth later recounted that Axel’s middle name, Strahl, honors his great-grandparents, who both survived the Holocaust and met in Austrian hospitals after their liberation.
Who is Alexi’s husband, Seth Meyers?
Seth Adam Meyers was born on December 28, 1973 in Evanston, Illinois, USA. He now hosts an NBC talk show “Late Night with Seth Meyers”. Before having his own show, he was in the cast of “Saturday Night Live”, which he was invited to work for in 2001, shortly after graduating from Northwestern University. In 2005, Seth became a co-head writer on the show, working with Andrew Steele and Tina Fey.

Eventually, Seth succeeded Jimmy Fallon and became the host of “Late Night” , as Jimmy has his own new project, “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon”.
Seth is a responsible father as he prepared for this role long before his children were born as he often said that family was his number one priority. When Alexi was pregnant with their first son, Seth asked Jennifer Garner, a popular actress, for some tips or advice on what to expect – Jennifer advised him not to listen to any advice, but to listen to his own heart.
