Key & Peele’s Jordan Peele can thank Andy Samberg for hooking him up with his “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” co-star Chelsea Peretti.
Dish Nation has learned that Chelsea, who went to elementary school with Andy and admitted to having a schoolgirl crush on him, was given the Samberg stamp of approval to date his buddy Jordan.
“Andy and Chelsea go way, way back so not only are they really close, but he’s always interested in who she’s dating,” said an insider close to Samberg. “As soon as Andy learned that Jordan expressed an interest in Chelsea he was on it. Andy knew this was a great match so he made it very simple – he told Chelsea that Jordan was a good man and she needed to give him a shot. Before you knew it, the two of them were hooking up and now they’re inseparable.”
Chelsea, 36, and Jordan, 35, made their romance public during the Comedy Central Creative Arts Emmy party on August 16 and then again on the Emmy red carpet a week later.
According to the source, Jordan and Chelsea have been dating for close to a year now, but have purposely kept the romance on the down low.
“Jordan and Chelsea wanted to make sure they were more than just a ‘fling thing.’ Well, it’s serious and now they don’t care who knows. Their friends are now bugging the comedy duo to get married and start having funny babies. The big question will be who will be the best man – Jordan’s comedy partner Keegan-Michael Key or Andy Samberg.”
