(Newser) – "I probably won't ever get married [again]; it's not something that I would want to do," Kristen Wiig told Stella magazine in 2011, per the San Francisco Chronicle. But apparently the right man came along. The actor-comedian is engaged to partner of three years, Avi Rothman, People reports, confirming rumors first sparked in May, when Wiig was seen rocking a diamond on the ring finger of her left hand at a Los Angeles film premiere. The 45-year-old was married to actor Hayes Hargrove for four years before the pair divorced in 2009. Rothman, like Wiig, studied at LA's Groundlings Theatre. His resume includes acting, writing, producing, and directing credits. (Another familiar face from Saturday Night Live is also engaged.)
