In happy baby news, Scarlett Johansson and her comedian husband Colin Jost, have welcomed their first baby together.
Who doesn’t love some baby news? Scarlett Johansson and husband Colin Jost have released a statement to People that they’ve welcome a new baby to the world. Scarlett is already mum to her gorgeous 7-year-old daughter Rose, and this is Colin’s first baby. This is their first baby together as a couple.
The couple who tied the knot in October 2020, kept the pregnancy very private, only dropping the news discreetly at a comedy show. Colin was performing and announced the news on stage, an audience member revealed that he “casually dropped that he and Scarlett are expecting soon.”
While details of the baby’s gender and name were left out of the original statement, Colin shared more details on social media. The new dad released a statement via his Instagram, “Ok ok we had a baby,” he shared, “His name is Cosmo. We love him very much.”
The couple have been dating since 2017, when they met on the set of Saturday Night Live. In his memoir, Jost, 39, described Scarlett as having “a grace and a smile that I’ve still never seen in any other human. I’ve met someone I love and who I feel more comfortable with than I ever have before. I feel more confident committing to what I’m working on and standing by whatever I create, regardless of whether people like it or not.”
Congratulations to the beautiful couple, and big sister Rose. Welcome to the world Cosmo!
