The representative of the 34-year-old actress also verified the news. After dating him for two years, she got engaged to Jost in May 2019. Johansson was formerly married to Ryan Reynolds and to Romain Dauriac, a journalist with whom she has a daughter, Rose. This is the first wedding for the 36-year-old Jost, who is a "Saturday Night Live" co-head blogger. In July, Jost spoke about the couple's wedding plans, adding that they had to re-evaluate their plans because of the pandemic. "We don't even know what is permissible legally. Now is not the time to get together all your aged, at risk relatives, together in one huge group … who knows!" Jost had said. The actress is currently awaiting the release of "Black Widow", her standalone superhero film, which was delayed due to the pandemic.
