Scarlett Johansson Pregnant: Welcomes Baby Boy with Colin Jost

Scarlett Johansson, renowned for her roles in “Black Widow” and “Marriage Story,” recently welcomed her first child, a baby boy named Cosmo, with her husband Colin Jost, a comedian and writer for Saturday Night Live. The couple shared their joyous announcement on Instagram. This marks Johansson’s second child, as she has a six-year-old daughter, Rose, from her previous marriage to Romain Dauriac. Here’s an overview of Johansson and Jost’s love story and the newest addition to their family.

Meeting and Falling in Love

Johansson and Jost initially crossed paths in 2006 when she hosted SNL for the first time, and he was a fledgling writer on the show. However, they didn’t start dating until 2017, following Johansson’s divorce from Dauriac and Jost’s split from Rashida Jones. The public became aware of their relationship in December 2017 at the American Museum of Natural History Gala. After two years of dating, they got engaged in May 2019, with Johansson flaunting her impressive 11-carat engagement ring at the San Diego Comic-Con in July 2019.

Marriage and Keeping It Under Wraps

Johansson and Jost quietly tied the knot in October 2020, opting for a low-key ceremony at their Palisades, New York home. The couple kept their nuptials a secret until they announced it through the Instagram account of Meals on Wheels America, urging fans to contribute to the charity. The intimate wedding included close friends and family, including Johansson’s daughter Rose.

Handling Pregnancy Rumors and Confirming the News

Pregnancy rumors circulated in June 2021 when Johansson avoided many promotional events for “Black Widow” and appeared on talk shows via Zoom, strategically concealing her pregnancy. In July, Page Six reported her pregnancy, citing multiple sources, and Jost officially confirmed the news during a stand-up show in Connecticut in August. Days later, he shared on Instagram that Johansson had given birth to their son, Cosmo, expressing their love for the newborn.


Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are elated to welcome their son, Cosmo, into the world. With a four-year relationship and nearly one year of marriage, the couple has remained private about their personal lives, sharing their significant moments with fans through social media and charity platforms. Both busy with successful careers, Johansson as a top-paid Hollywood actress and Jost as the SNL Weekend Update co-anchor, they’ve become a power couple, now celebrating their happy family of four.
