Scarlett Moffatt is in a relationship with 36-year-old police officer Scott Dobinson. The pair have been together since 2018 after knowing each other for almost 15 years. Although they began dating in 2018, they didn’t go public with their relationship until March 2019. 

Though they have known each other for 15 years, the pair didn’t become romantically involved until Scarlett called 999 after feeling scared when a stranger was taking photographs of her home.

Policeman Scott was on the job and responded to the call - to Scarlett’s delight. After seeing each other for the first time in a while, Scarlett posted a comment on one of Scott’s Facebook pictures after a few drinks and their romance blossomed from there.

There isn’t much information about Scott online, but he does have over 19,000 followers on his Instagram page @scottdobby where you can find pictures of him and Scarlett, content based on his love of live music and a plethora of dreamy travelling shots.

In a post on May 6th 2019, Scarlett said on Instagram: "SOPPY POST ALERT 🙈 After being broken a couple of times I decided I owed it to myself to give me as much love as I had given others, I put my efforts into self love and for once I felt truly happy (flaws and all).

"Then all of a sudden this man came into my life unexpectedly and now my heart is even fuller. No one has ever made me feel this way. You truly are my soul mate ❤️

"Never give up on love and most importantly never give up on yourself 💓 #love"

Is Scarlett Moffatt Married?

Scarlett Moffatt is not married but…and it’s a big but…she has spoken about her wedding a lot. Before she got engaged, Scarlett said that she wanted to go to Las Vegas to get married.

Speaking on her podcast, Scarlett Moffatt Wants To Believe, in February 2021, she said, “I’m not actually engaged yet, but I assume he’s going to do it at some point. I've always wanted a massive wedding but now I keep saying ‘Let’s go to Vegas’.” We can just picture her celebrity wedding dress now. 

All hopes of a 2022 wedding for Scarlett and Scott died down in April last year when she confirmed that her wedding plans were on hold, “Not this year,” she said. Continuing to keep us on the edge of our seats, she hinted that another huge relationship milestone may come before the wedding. 

The pair went on to have their first son together, Jude, before announcing their engagement in November 2023. We're keeping our fingers crossed for a 2024 celebrity wedding
