See Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost's First Public Appearance As a Couple

The Black Widow is single no more!

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost at the premiere of Disney and Marvel's 'Avengers: Infinity War' held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, USA on April 23, 2018.

Did you know that Scarlett Johansson, 33, was dating 35 year-old comedian Colin Jost? No? Well, few others did, but that's sure to change, as the pair made their first official appearance at the Los Angeles premiere of Avengers: Infinity War last night, looking madly in love.

It's not clear when Johansson, who is infamously private about her love life, first started dating the co-anchor of Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update, but it seems she would have met him all the way back in 2006 when she first hosted SNL.

Back then, she was still dating her Black Dahlia co-star Josh Hartnett. In 2007, she began dating Ryan Reynolds, whom she married in a year later, and divorced in 2011. A year later, she began dating French journalist Romain Dauriac, whom she married in 2014, shortly after the birth of their daughter, Rose Dorothy Dauriac. They announced they were splitting up in January 2017, and, in March, the actress officially filed for divorce. Rumors that she was dating Colin Jost first began circulating in May 2017, so it's safe to say Johansson is never on the market for very long (and why would she be?).

On Monday, Johansson confirmed the romance on The Ellen Degeneres Show, after Ellen asked her whether she preferred Colin Host or his SNL co-anchor Michael Che.

"It's hard to pick," she laughed, beaming. "No it's not that hard to pick. I guess I'm a Colin fan, I'd have to say."

"He's adorable, he's funny. I'm happy for you," Ellen replied.

Ellen then put up a throwback photo of comedian John Mulaney with Colin back when he had some pretty intense facial hair, asking her if she'd seen it before.

"I mean, I can't unsee it now," she said, looking dumbfounded. "I can't say that that's an image that I'll ever forget."

You heard it here first, Colin: Keep it clean-shaven.

Given how insanely happy Ryan Reynolds is with Blake Lively, we hope that ScarJo has finally found her forever person, as well. And for more romantic celebrity stories, check out How 50 Famous Men Wooed the Women of Their Dreams.
