Hell yeah he's lucky.

Johansson divorced her french journalist husband Romain Dauriac back last summer, meaning he caught the actress at the perfect time.

As for Jost, his last documented relationship seems to have been with the amazing Rashida Jones, back in 2013.

Despite only apparently being together since last Spring, Johansson and Jost are clearly ready to take their relationship public. She was even meant to be his Emmy date, though she had to work instead.

Jost 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.'
