Johansson got engaged to Jost, a co-head writer at Saturday Night Live, in May 2019 after dating him for two years. Jost had spoken about the couple's wedding plans in July, adding that they had to re-assess their plans owing to the pandemic. "We don't even know what's legally allowed. This is not the time to get all your elderly, at-risk relatives together all in one big group... who knows!" Jost had said.
Johansson is currently awaiting the release of her standalone superhero film, Black Widow, which got postponed owing to the pandemic.
