Scarlett and Colin tied the knot in October 2020 with an intimate marriage ceremony attended by family and friends.

The ceremony is rumoured to have taken place at the actors’ home in Palisades, New York.

They got engaged in May 2019 after three years of dating and met while creating a parody sketch on Saturday Night Live.

The couple confirmed the news of their secret marriage through the Instagram account for Meals On Wheels America with a photo of the Staten Island Ferry that had the words ‘Jost Married’ written above it.

“We're thrilled to break the news that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were married over the weekend in an intimate ceremony with their immediate family and love ones,” the post said.

Speaking about the ceremony, which took place in line with Covid restrictions, Scarlett told People Magazine: “I think just keeping it intimate and small made it feel intentional.

“We wanted it to feel like it had an intentional intimacy as opposed to being something that felt like we were restricted by all these things.
