Ellie Kemper engaged to comedy writer Michael Koman
"The Office" star Ellie Kemper announced on Wednesday night's "Conan" that she's engaged to longtime love Michael Koman.
"It's sort of a big deal around this office," Conan O'Brien said. "You got engaged." O'Brien mentioned that Koman is a "very talented writer who worked for me for many, many years."
"I did!" Kemper confirms. ""Michael's a delight, as you know, so of course [my parents] like him a lot."
The 31-year-old actress does mention that when she and Koman first started dating, her family didn't find him quite so delightful. On his first Thanksgiving with her fam, there were a few awkward moments.
"There was a pumpkin pie and a pecan pie out, and my grandpa said, 'Ellie, what kind of pie are you gonna have?'" she says. "And I said, 'I don't know, grandpa. They both look really good. I think I'll have pecan.' He said, 'Are you sure, Ellie? Because it's okay to keep your options open. You don't have to settle on a pie right now.' I think Michael started to squirm!"
