Scarlett Johansson had her first bb with Saturday Night Live head writer and husband Colin Jost back in 2021; but, honestly, their relationship has had *tons* of extremely cute mems, between their intimate wedding to all of their general red carpet cuteness. And frankly, it’s way more fun to stare at a couple making out at the Academy Awards if you know a little about their relationship, which brings us to this comprehensive and surprisingly sweet timeline of ScarJost’s (sorry, it’s happening) love story. Come on in, the water’s fine!
January 14, 2006
Scarlett hosts SNL and meets Colin for the first time—at least, according to him. “The first time she hosted was the first year I was a writer on the show,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “So we’ve kind of known each other since then.…She’s the best.”
Cool, but meanwhile, Scarlett told the Hollywood Reporter that her first memory of Colin was from her third time hosting the show in 2010, when she did a 16 and Pregnant-themed sketch:
“It was some dumb parody that he had written, and he was in there partly directing this segment we had to do. That’s my first memory of him. He seemed very confident at the time. I don’t know if he felt that way, but in that environment, if you’re not confident as a writer, your stuff just never gets produced.”

Scarlett hosts SNL again and makes a ton of jokes about Colin, saying, “The show is bad, what are they gonna do, fire my fiancé? Oh no, what will we do without his paycheck?”

The Insta reads:
No pics of the wedding though, boo-hoo.
April 21, 2021
Still no wedding pics, but we get the next best thing: Scarlett talking about her and Colin’s wedding! “I think just keeping it intimate and small made it feel intentional,” she says in an interview with People. “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.”
Thankfully, Scarlett acknowledges that the wedding took place at “such a delicate time” and as such “there was a lot to take into consideration because of all of the CDC guidelines and making sure everybody was comfortable and safe, following all the COVID-19 protocol,” she adds.
July 6, 2021
It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for, y’all—Scarlett is pregnant with her first child with Colin! Yay, babies!
A Page Six source has the intel and says, “Scarlett is actually due soon. I know she and Colin are thrilled.” True to the nature of their relationship, another source says that “Scarlett is pregnant but has been keeping it very quiet. She has been keeping a very low profile.”
The source adds, “She hasn’t been doing many interviews or events to promote Black Widow, which is surprising since it is a huge Marvel/Disney release and she is both the star and an executive producer,” discussing Scarlett pregnancy speculations concerning her absence from the Black Widow premiere from last month.

Our friends all liked it,” the celeb adds before commenting on the fact that both of her children’s names are flowers. “They are both flowers. Not a lot of people make that connection. Cosmo is a really sweet little flower that comes in different shades of orange and yellow.”
April 18, 2023
While speaking with Gwyneth Paltrow on the Goop podcast, Scarlett opens up about her marriage to Colin and reveals that their relationship has been so successful thus far because they, “Move around the world in the same way.”
“I never realized, ‘Oh, it’s really important for me, I need to be with a compassionate person. That’s a fundamental characteristic that has to be there.’ It worked with Colin and I because I was finally able to step back and respect myself enough to know what those [wants and needs] were,” she adds.
BRB literally sobbing right about now. Anyway!! We, of course, will be updating this timeline with any new ScarJost developments as they come.
