Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are engaged, as per a report from the Associated Press.
On Sunday (May 19), Johansson's publicist, Marcel Pariseau, confirmed the news, detailing that the two have decided to take their romance to the next level after two years of dating. Pariseau said no date has been set for the nuptials. After the announcement, TMZ reported that Jost popped the big question last Thursday at Blue Hill Stone Barns last Thursday in Pocantico Hills, NY. While the actress was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds and journalist Romain Dauriac, with whom she has a daughter named Rose, who was born in 2014, this marks the first marriage for the SNL castmate.
As per reports, Johansson and Jost were first spotted together in May 2017 at an afterparty celebrating the NBC variety show’s season 42 finale. Later that year, they made their first public appearance together at the American Museum of Natural History Gala in December. While the duo has (mostly) kept their romance under wraps, they did recently attend the Avengers: Endgame premiere together in Los Angeles.
News of their engagement comes after a source told PEOPLE in March that the pair had started to talk about marriage. "Scarlett and Colin are in love and share many of the same interests and the same sense of humor," an insider told the magazine at the time. "Scarlett is very happy. There is marriage talk with Colin."
