When Joanna Newsom married Andy Samberg in September 2013, the singer-songwriter legally took her husband's surname—but that's as far as she's willing to go. "I see you out all the time with your new wife. She's really pretty," Chelsea Handler told the Golden Globe-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine star during the Monday, Jan. 27, episode of E!'s Chelsea Lately. "Is your wife a Jew, too?"
"She's not, no," the TV star replied. "She's a musician, though, so it doesn't matter."
Handler then asked, "Are you going to raise your kids Jewish? How do you decide what's going to happen with that?" Samberg explained that he and Newsom "haven't figured it out yet."
"Does she know that you're Jewish?" Handler joked.
"I mean, all she has to do is look at my face," Samberg said, smiling.
"You're pretty Jew-y looking," Handler conceded.
"I'm pretty Jew-y. And my last name is Samberg," the actor quipped. The reason Newsom is keeping her maiden name, Samberg explained, is because "she already has an established fan base and stuff. I told her not to [change it]. I was like, 'Don't ruin your cool name.'"
