The actress’ publicist, Marcel Pariseau, confirmed the news to the Associated Press on Sunday. The Avengers: Endgame star, 34, has been linked to Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost, 36, since they made their first public appearance as a couple in November 2017 at an after party celebrating the season 42 finale of SNL.
The couple has been dating for two years, making their first red carpet appearance together at the 2018 Met Gala and attending the Emmys together later that year. In February 2019, a source told Us Weekly that the pair had moved in together.
“Colin is still head over heels for Scarlett,” the source told Us at the time. “He thinks she is incredible, kind, beautiful. He is beyond doting to her and loves showing her off when they’re out.”
Just two months ago, a source told PEOPLE that the couple was getting serious and contemplating marriage. “Scarlett and Colin are in love and share many of the same interests and the same sense of humor,” the source said. “Scarlett is very happy.”
This will be Jost’s first marriage, and Johansson’s third. The actress was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds, from September 2008 to December 2019, and journalist Romain Dauriac from 2014 until September 2017. Johansson shares a four year old daughter, Rose, with Dauriac.
No wedding date has been set yet and there’s been no photo of a ring, but we imagine that it’s nothing short of stunning. Johansson and Jost’s happy news is one of many celebrity engagements so far in 2019, including Hilary Duff, Jennifer Lopez, and Katy Perry.
