Johansson and Jost have been dating since 2017 and officially got engaged in May of last year. This will mark the Black Widow star's third marriage, having previously been married to actor Ryan Reynolds and later French journalist Romain Dauriac, with whom she has one daughter. The nuptials are Jost's first.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October of 2019, Johansson revealed the circumstances of how Jost proposed to her earlier that year, saying he did in a romantic way and that "he killed it.

"It was a very James Bond situation. It was surprising. He's got a lot behind that [Saturday Night Live] news desk he's hiding," Johansson said (H/T ET Online) "He's very charming and very thoughtful and romantic. I was surprised, even if you imagine what that moment is going to be like, it's still, it's a beautiful moment. It was very personal. It was a very special moment and I think more than anything, when someone tells you they want to share the rest of their life with you, it's a lovely, special thing."
