Scarlett and Colin have been dating since 2017, after she made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live. They got engaged in 2019, and Scarlett told Ellen DeGeneres, "He killed it. He did a whole James Bond situation. He's got a lot behind that news desk that he's hiding."
She added, "More than anything, when someone tells you they want to spend the rest of their life with you, it's a lovely and special thing."
