Scarlett Johansson is engaged to SNL writer Colin Jost, according to a representative of the Avengers actress. However, the couple has not yet confirmed their wedding date.

Jost’s marriage to Scarlett will be his first, but it would be Scarlett’s third marriage. She was previously married to Ryan Reynolds (2008-2011) and to French businessman Romain Dauriac (2014-2017).

Scarlett and Dauriac welcomed their daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac in 2014.

Jost and Scarlett started dating sometime in 2017, soon after she made a guest appearance on SNL.

Scarlett raised eyebrows back in February 2017 — soon after she split from Dauriac — when she declared in an interview with Playboy magazine that she didn’t think monogamy was natural.

Now that she is engaged and planning to get married again, fans might wonder whether she changed her mind. Fans will also be wondering what Jost, who is marrying for the first time, thinks about Johansson’s belief that monogamy is not natural.

Although the details of Johansson’s personal life are well known, Jost is a less familiar figure. If you are wondering who Colin Jost is, here is everything you need to know.

Who is Colin Jost?
