WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost welcomed a baby boy named Cosmo, their first child together.
- It’s Jost’s first child while the ‘Black Widow’ star shares a 6-year-old daughter with her ex-husband, Romain Dauriac.
- The couple became engaged in 2019 and got married fall.
Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost welcomed a baby boy on Wednesday.
Jost announced the news on Instagram late Wednesday, revealing the baby’s name, Cosmo. Johansson’s rep Marcel Pariseau confirms the news exclusively to PEOPLE.
Cosmo is the couple’s first child together. The 36-year-old Avenger star shares a daughter with her ex-husband, journalist Romain Dauriac. Johansson’s first child Rose Dorothy turns 7 years old this fall.
On Sunday, the 39-year-old SNL host briefly mentioned the pregnancy news during a stand-up performance at The Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut.
The new parents married in October 2020 after being engaged for one-and-a-half years. Jost and Johansson got engaged in May 2019 after two years of dating. The Marriage Story actress was seen wearing her 11-carat engagement ring in July 2019 while attending the San Diego Comic-Con.
During a guesting at The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2019, the two-time Academy Award nominee told DeGeneres that Jost “killed it” with his “surprising” proposal, which included “a whole James Bond situation.”
“He’s got a lot behind that news desk he’s hiding,” Johansson joked, referring to Jost’s job as “Weekend Update” co-host on SNL. “He’s very charming and very thoughtful and romantic. But yeah, I was surprised. Even if you kind of imagine what that moment’s gonna be like, it’s still a beautiful moment.”
Johansson has previously been open about parenting her first child. In April she told PEOPLE about how she encourages Rose to eat healthy meals, while discussing her partnership with HumanCo on Snow Days, frozen pizza bites made with organic, grain-free ingredients.
“It’s funny, but I think I never really had to trick her into eating healthy,” said Johansson.”I think [it’s best] just letting kids discover food that way without making it feel like a chore. Everybody has a different palate. I’ve never tried to force my kid to eat anything she didn’t like, and I never tried to hide any foods from her because I was trying to pack in an extra carrot. Just offer a variety as much as possible.”
