Being a celebrity is a tricky thing. While you may have fame and fortune, it also opens one's life to the public. Scarlett Johansson knows this all too well, with she and husband Colin Jost have been making headlines since the Avenger and Saturday Night Live talent first connected. There were some reports that ScarJo might be pregnant, and now it's reportedly been confirmed by none other than Jost himself. What's more, they've already welcomed their first child together.
Questions about Scarlett Johansson's possible pregnancy came as Marvel's Black Widow finally approached theaters. She wasn't physically present for the big premiere event, which definitely turned a few heads. Colin Jost confirmed that Johansson is indeed pregnant during a recent comedy set, and it turns out that they've actually welcomed their baby into the world. A little boy named Cosmo.
This latest report comes to us from Page Six, which originally broke a story about Scarlett Johansson pregnancy weeks ago. Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost was performing a stand-up set Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut last weekend, where he reportedly confirmed he was about to become a parent. And since then Jost's press rep has confirmed to People that the bundle of joy has indeed arrived. He'd eventually post his own confirmation on Instagram, as you can see below:
It seems that congratulations are in order, as Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost have welcomed the arrival of their own little Avenger. While Johansson previously had a daughter with ex-husband Romain Dauriac back in 2014, this is Jost's first time becoming a parent-- which no doubt adds its own level of excitement to the news. And clearly he's excited about this seismic change to his partnership with Johansson.
Prior to the news about Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy, she and Colin Jost have been consistently making headlines due to their romantic relationship. Jost has endured jokes at his expense while working on Saturday Night Live, although that didn't stop the two from coupling and eventually getting married in October of 2020. And their little family has gotten much bigger, thanks to the arrival of their first child together.

Of course, Scarlett Johansson has recently been making news about her professional life, rather than personal. Because the 36 year-old actress recently filed a lawsuit against Disney over the release strategy of Black Widow. Specifically she's taken umbrage with the movie's release on Disney+, and the money lost due to its box office drop off.
Only time will how that legal battle with Disney will play out, Scarlett Johansson seemingly has a reason for wanting to collect the biggest payday possible: her growing family. Regardless, it's clear that Colin Jost and his wife are psyched about having baby Cosmo together. And with her Marvel contract up, Johansson's schedule should presumably be much more flexible during this exciting time.
