The couple first met in 2014 after Cooper saw Scarlett acting in the Harry Potter films and began courting her on social media. They got engaged just a year later in August 2015 and finally tied the knot in 2019, with Scarlett sharing on Instagram when he proposed: "I was lucky enough to fall in love with my best friend".
