Who is Scarlett Johansson married to?

Scarlett Johansson has been married to Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost since 2020. 

The couple first crossed paths in 2006 while backstage at Saturday Night Live when Scarlett was hosting and Colin was a part of the show’s writing room. Despite hitting off as friends, Scarlett and Colin were not romantically linked until May 2017, with Page Six reporting that the pair were spotted kissing at a Saturday Night Live afterparty. 

In April 2018, the couple debuted their romance on the red carpet for Scarlett’s film Avengers: Infinity War. One month later, the Hollywood couple stepped out at the 2018 Met Gala, with the pair captured sharing a number of loving glances as they ascended the red carpet.

After two years together, Scarlett’s publicist Marcel Pariseau confirmed that Colin and Scarlett were engaged, telling the Associated Press that the couple had not yet set a date to tie the knot. 

Just over six months since the couple first confirmed their engagement, Scarlett returned to the Saturday Night Live stage as host, telling the audience, “This place means so much to me. I have so many friends here and I met the love of my life here.” 

In October 2020, Scarlett and Colin tied the knot in an intimate ceremony surrounded by friends and family. While the pair did not share any glimpses into their ceremony on social media, Meals on Wheels America confirmed the Hollywood couple had tied the knot, writing to Instagram, “We’re thrilled to break the news that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were married over the weekend… Their wedding wish is to help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time by supporting @mealsonwheelsamerica.”

After almost one year of marriage, Scarlett and Colin welcomed their first child together. 

Announcing the arrival to Instagram, Colin wrote, “Ok ok we had a baby. His name is Cosmo. We love him very much.” 

Shortly after the birth, sources speaking to People offered more insight into the couple’s life with their newborn son, telling the publication, “They are very private but elated over the baby. They are both so happy and madly in love with the baby.” 

“I feel very fortunate that I’ve been able to take this time to really enjoy the early stages of motherhood with our son. It’s been wonderful. I’m in a baby bliss bubble,” Scarlett told Entertainment Tonight in November 2021.

In April 2023, Scarlett offered a rare glimpse into her relationship dynamic with Colin, telling Gwyneth Paltrow, “I never realised, ‘Oh, it’s really important for me, I need to be with a compassionate person’.”

“That’s a fundamental characteristic that has to be there. It worked with Colin and I because I was finally able to step back and respect myself enough to know what those [needs] were,” she told the goop podcast.
