The love-birds have not yet referred to each other in interviews, keeping their relationship relatively private and out of the public eye.

Though, Colin sung Scarlett’s praises back in September 2017 at the Emmy Awards.

He said: ‘She’s wonderful. She’s working, so otherwise, she’d be here. She’s pretty cool. It’s hard to have a lot of complaints, she’s pretty awesome…I’m very happy. I feel very lucky.’

The 34-year-old actress has been previously married twice before, to actor Ryan Reynolds, and French journalist Romain Dauriac with whom she shares a daughter, Rose, born in 2014.

Having previously spoken to Today magazine saying that she doesn’t believe in monogamy – it seems Scarlett has changed her mind.

She said: ‘I don’t think human beings are monogamous creatures by nature.’

Though she hasn’t given up on the idea of a fairy-tale wedding.

She went on to say: ‘I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it’s a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing.’

While no date has been set for the nuptials, fingers crossed the happy couple tie the knot in the next few years – we can’t wait to see the dress.

Congratulations to the dreamy pair!
