We love love—even better if we’re talking about the rich, famous people type of love. These new celeb couples have been some of the few bright spots in the tire fire that has been 2018 thus far. From Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s whirlwind engagement and (predictable) breakup to Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp getting caught smooching, this year has basically been like a series of quirky rom-coms—and we have loved every minute. (Of course, like any rom-com, some of these couplings weren’t meant to last the year—or even the month—but we’ll #neverforget.)
2018 has so far been the year of surprises, surprise couples, that is. From Elon Musk and Grimes making their MET Gala debut to finding out Ariana Grande has a thing for funny men, the new year isn’t holding back. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the newest pairings (and some old ones). As the saying goes, ’New Year, New Boo?”
Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost
Johansson, 33, and Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update Jost, 35, have kept their relationship relatively on the DL, quietly dating since May 2017, when they were first spotted at an after-party for SNL‘s season finale. The couple made their red-carpet debut at the Hollywood premier of Avengers: Infinity War on April 23 of this year, where ScarJo—who plays Black Widow in the superhero movie—told Entertainment Tonight she was excited about having her BF there. “I’m just excited to share this experience with him because I’m so excited to see the film. I haven’t seen it before!” Recently, the pair walked the carpet together at the Met Gala–a first for the funny-man.
Their date-night at the Met came the same week Jost confirmed his relationship on SNL, joking with Leslie Jones about her sexual advances in a skit, saying, “I told you I have a girlfriend!”.
