Scarlett Johansson is set to marry her boyfriend of two years, Colin Jost.  

The couple are officially engaged after two years of dating, reports the Washington Post on Sunday.  

The 34-year-old actress and 36-year-old Saturday Night Live head writer are yet to set a date after he popped the question. 

Johansson’s publicist Marcel Pariseau told The Associated Press Sunday that the private couple is officially engaged after two years of dating, reports the publication. 

It will be third time lucky for Johansson, 34, who was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds and journalist Romain Dauriac. 

She shares daughter Rose, who was born in 2014, with Dauriac. 

It will be the first marriage for Jost, who is the co-anchor of SNL’s Weekend Update.

They have kept their relationship on the down-low since first starting dating in July 2017.    

However, the loved-up couple recently sealed their romance publicly when they walked the red carpet together at the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War back in 2018, in which Johansson plays the character of Black Widow.  

'Scarlett says he is different than many of the men she has been with,' a source previously shared with E! News.  

They added: 'She is pretty picky who she goes out with even if it's just dating. They share many similarities together.'   A separate insider told the publication that the pair has 'a good time together.' 

Scarlett secretly split from her husband Romain Dauriac after two years of marriage back in January 2017.

The pair have a two-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy.

The actress had been pictured out without her wedding ring but sources had said at the time that they had split during the summer before. 

It was reported that it was Scarlett who ended the relationship according to a report from Us Weekly at the time.

'Scarlett initiated splitting up and made the decision,' according to a source for the publication. They went on to explain that 'she felt like they didn't have much in common as far as lifestyle.'

The actress began dating Romain in 2012 and they got engaged in 2013.

They married in secret at The Ranch At Rock Creek in Philipsburg, Montana in October 2014 shortly after the birth of their daughter. 

Moreover, Scarlett and Ryan Reynolds split up after more than two years of marriage back in 2010.

According to U.S reports, Scarlett was once again, the one who initiated the separation.

The couple released a statement at the time, saying: 'After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we've decided to end our marriage.

'We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated.'

Ryan and Scarlett got engaged in May 2008 and were married in an intimate ceremony in Vancouver, Canada, that September.

While Ryan once gushed that marriage was the 'best part' of his life, Scarlett was less than enthusiastic recently when talking about relationships to Glamour magazine.

She said: 'I don't profess to know anything about marriage that anybody else doesn't know, or how to make it right.'

And Ryan had, at one point, admitted that marriage wasn't all it's cracked up to be.

The actor told GQ magazine that things had 'changed' since they got married.

He said: 'I'm a little more guarded, I think. I'm a little bit more wary of having my relationship turning into a soap opera.'

She started dating the Canadian actor in Spring 2007 - shortly after he ended his two year engagement to singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette.

Ryan is now happily married to Blake Lively and they have two children together. Blake is now pregnant with their third child.  

Before her marriage to Reynolds, Johansson was linked to a series of Hollywood men, including Puerto Rican-American actor and film producer Benicio del Toro, Jared Leto and Justin Timberlake.

She dated her Black Dahlia co-star Josh Hartnett for about two years until the end of 2006, with Hartnett citing their busy lifestyles as the reason behind their split.
