Congratulations are in order to Scarlett Johansson, who is engaged to her boyfriend Colin Jost. The Avengers: Endgame actress shared her happy news at the weekend, following a two-year relationship.

Scarlett’s rep Marcel Pariseau confirmed to the Associated Press that the pair were officially engaged, but said no date has been set for the wedding as yet.

The couple have largely kept their relationship out of the public eye, but have supported each other at a few events and were most recently seen together at the Avengers: Endgame premiere in April. This will be Colin’s first marriage, while Scarlett was previously married to Ryan Reynolds from 2008 until 2010, and Romain Dauriac from 2014 until 2017. The actress has a four-year-old daughter, Rose, with her second husband.

Although the couple haven’t often spoken about each other in interviews, Colin did make some comments about his then-girlfriend in September 2017, when she was unable to accompany him to the Emmy Awards. "She’s wonderful. She’s working, so otherwise, she’d be here," he told Entertainment Tonight. "She’s pretty cool. It’s hard to have a lot of complaints, she’s pretty awesome…I’m very happy. I feel very lucky."
