Scarlett Johansson has tied the knot with her partner Colin Jost.

The Avengers actress, 35, and the Saturday Night Live star, 38, exchanged vows at the weekend, two years after they first got together.

The couple said “I do” in an “intimate ceremony” with their close family and friends, in accordance with coronavirus guidelines.

The happy news was announced on Instagram by the organisation Meals On Wheels, which said the newlyweds’ wedding wish was to “help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time”.

The post – shared alongside a picture of the Staten Island ferry emblazoned with the words “Jost married” – said: “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 loved ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions as directed by the CDC.

“Their wedding wish is to help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time by supporting @mealsonwheelsamerica.”

The message urged fans to consider celebrating the marriage by donating to the cause.

Jost popped the question in May after the couple had been dating for two years.

Not long afterwards, Johansson appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show but would not divulge many details about the “very special moment”.

However, she did tease that Jost’s proposal was “surprising” and a bit James Bond like.

The marriage is the first for SNL writer and comic Jost, and the third for Johansson.
