Subsequently, they were spotted together at different places and then by November, it was reported that they were already serious with each other and had met each other’s families.

Even though they were said to have taken their relationship serious, the world’s highest-paid actress and SNL comedian had not made any public appearance together until November 20, when they were at the 2017 American Museum of Natural History Gala as a couple. From then on, they kept appearing together in public including at the “Avengers: Infinity War” premiere and Met Gala in 2018.
