Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost weren’t afraid to show off their newly publicromance with a little televised PDA!
During the goodbye section of this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live — which was filmed at the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center — Jost, 35, and Johansson, 32, were all smiles as the SNL star wrapped his arm around the actress’ shoulder.
Although the episode was hosted by Kevin Hart, Johansson made a surprise guest appearance in the cold open as Ivanka Trump, whom she had previously portrayed in March during a mock ad for a perfume called “Complicit.”
Michael Che — Jost’s co-host on SNL‘s “Weekend Update” — also shared a video of the sweet moment on his Instagram story, which featured the couple smiling as they held hands while skating around the rink. “murrrrr xmas!!,” Che wrote alongside the video.
After months of keeping their romance low-key, the pair made their public debut as a couple in November at the American Museum of Natural History Gala in New York City.
Though the Avengers: Infinity Wars actress and the SNL star walked the red carpet separately, she was all smiles as they posed for photos together inside the soirée.
The pair were first romantically linked in May when they were spotted kissing at the NBC show’s season finale afterparty. Since then, the two have been seen enjoying numerous nights out together.
In September, Jost opened up about his romance with the mother of one, revealing he feels “very lucky.”
“She’s pretty cool … it’s hard to have a lot of complaints, she’s pretty awesome,” he said at the 2017 Emmy Awards. “I’m very happy. I feel very lucky.”
That same month, Johansson and her ex-husband, Romain Dauriac, finalized their divorce and settled their custody dispute. The former couple shares a daughter, 3-year-old Rose Dorothy.
“They’re very much in love. It’s serious,” a friend of Jost’s previously told. “They’re both very respectful of each other’s careers and very supportive. They’re super cute together.”
And another source close to the couple echoed similar sentiments. “Scarlett likes to be in love and has not changed a bit in that area, Colin is good for her because she likes smart men, especially writer types,” the source shared. “She is a very bright girl and always searching for that perfect match.”
