Scarlett Johannson and Colin Jost are engaged!

Johannson's team confirmed the couple's engagement on Sunday to the The Associated Press, but according to TMZ, the couple had already been engaged for a couple of days at that point. A source told TMZ that Jost and Johannson arrived at Blue Hill Stone Barns, a restaurant in upstate New York, last Thursday at around 10 p.m., already in celebration mode. TBD on where Jost actually popped the question, but by the time they got to dinner Johannson was reportedly already rocking some major bling and the couple spent the night calling friends and family to share the news.

She and Jost—a cast member on Saturday Night Live and the host of "Weekend Update"—have been together for two years. They were first spotted kissing at an SNL party in 2017 after she made a guest appearance on the show. At the time, a source told Page Six, "Scarlett and Colin were flirting and canoodling in full view of everyone at the afterparty, including the ‘SNL’ cast and crew. They were laughing and seemed to really hit it off.”

Hit it off, indeed. They've made a number of red carpet appearances together over the years, looking adorably in love in every photo. "She’s wonderful," Jost said of the actress in 2017. "... She’s pretty cool ... it’s hard to have a lot of complaints, she’s pretty awesome. I’m very happy. I feel very lucky."

The couple moved in together earlier this year, sparking rumors that an engagement was imminent. "Scarlett loves Colin too, and they are in it for the long haul," an insider told Us Weekly at the time.

The source continued, "They have talked about marriage and are fully committed to each other. Colin gets a starry-eyed look in his eyes when he talks about her." Clearly, the rumors were true.

This will be Johannson's third marriage. She was married to Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2010, and then to Romain Dauriac from 2015 to 2017, with whom she shares a 4-year-old daughter. This will be Jost's first turn down the aisle. Neither of the stars have spoken about the engagement (yet), but we'll Jost's watching Instagram very, very closely in the hopes of getting a shot of the ring.
