The child is Johansson’s second and the first for the couple.
Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are the proud parents of a newborn.
The actress’ rep confirmed the baby’s birth to PEOPLE, though no other details were made available. The baby is the first for the couple, while Johansson shares six-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy with ex-husband Romain Dauriac.
Jost also confirmed the news on Instagram, writing, “Ok ok we had a baby. His name is Cosmo. We love him very much. Privacy would be greatly appreciated.” He also said all inquires should be directed to their publicist, before tagging Jost’s “SNL” Weekend Update cohost Michael Che — so take the whole Instagram post with a grain of salt.
Scarlett Johansson Details Covid Wedding to Colin Jost
Fans have been running with rumors that the “Avengers” star was pregnant for months now, with those rumors gaining real traction in the lead-up to the release of her first solo film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe “Black Widow.”
Johansson is both the star and executive producer of the long-awaited and long-demanded film in the MCU franchise, though she missed the big red carpet premiere on June 29, leaving her co-star and heir apparent to the role Florence Pugh to pick up the baton and do the heavy lifting.
Jost only confirmed the pregnancy this past weekend, reportedly dropping the news during a stand-up set at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut. “We’re having a baby, it’s exciting,” he said, per Page Six.

The two got engaged in May 2019 and tied the knot in October 2020.
Johansson was previously married to Ryan Reynolds from 2008-2011, before her marriage to Dauriac from 2014-2017.
