Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are married after three years of dating.

The couple made the announcement in an unusual way, choosing to snub any magazine deals to instead let the world know by shedding some awareness on a very important organisation.

Scarlett and Colin are reported to have started dating in 2017, just months after she filed for divorce from her second husband, Romain Dauriac.

Colin is believed to have popped the question in May 2019. He previously dated Parks & Recreation star Rashida Jones for three years until 2016.
