Colin first met Scarlett in 2006 when she debuted as SNL host. At the time Jost was still a writer for the show. Their relationship went to the next level in 2017 when Scarlett yet again returned to the show as a host. That is when things started to heat up. The pair were even rumored to be dating in May 2017.

Meanwhile, Colin and his lady-love made their first appearance in 2017 American Museum of Natural History Gala in November 2017

Later, the duo officially announced their dating in December of 2017 and as of now are engaged to one another. As for the wedding, dates and other details have not yet been decided.

Prior to dating Johansson, Colin was in a relationship with American actress and then-girlfriend Rashida Jone from 2013-2016.

Is Colin Gay?

With a look back into his relationship history and his current status, it is safe to say that Jost is not a gay man despite many rumors that have come forth in the past few years. For instance, on 5 May 2018, on Saturday Night Live, Leslie, to spill the bean of Colin's personal life, she allegedly called him a gay. She said;

'He was so cute and sweet and kind, but it would never work cause he's gay.'

Replying to Leslie, he shattered the claim saying he isn't a gay and has a girlfriend.
