Surprise! Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost welcome first child together: ‘We had a baby’
“Ok Ok we had a baby. His name is Cosmo,” Jost wrote in an Instagram post. People magazine first confirmed the news, and Johansson’s rep Marcel Pariseau directed USA TODAY to Jost’s post. “We love him very much.”
Jost added that protection would be “greatly appreciated” during this time, and playfully guided all further requests to his “SNL” co-star, Michael Che.
USA TODAY connected with Jost’s rep for input.
The celeb couple got engaged in May 2019 and announced their nuptials in October, as disclosed in a post on the Instagram page for Meals on Wheels America, a charity donating food and resource to the aged and abandoned. The post shows an image of a Staten Island Ferry with the words “Jost Married” across the picture.
“We’re thrilled to break the news that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were married over the weekend in an intimate ceremony with their immediate family and love ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions as directed by the CDC,” read the caption.
Johansson and Jost met through “Saturday Night Live.” Johansson, 36, has hosted multiple times since 2006 and Jost, 39, joined the show as an author in 2005 preceding becoming head writer and “Weekend Update” co-anchor.
The couple went red carpet official in 2018, connecting arms and modeling for photographers and picture takers at the premiere of “Avengers: Infinity War,” in which Johansson starred as Black Widow. Johansson most recently launched a lawsuit against Disney Studios last month, asserting there was a breach of contract when “Dark Widow” was released on the Disney+ streaming service at the same time as its theatrical debut.
In his book “A Very Punchable Face: A Memoir,” released recently, Jost composed about meeting Johansson interestingly during his first year on “SNL,” portraying her as a “beautiful, smart, sweet and intimidatingly sophisticated” star having “a grace and a smile that I’ve still never seen in any other human.”
This is the third marriage for Johansson, who was wed to “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds (2008-2011) and journalist Romain Dauriac (2014-2017), whom she shares her daughter, Rose Dorothy Dauriac, 6.
This is the first marriage and kid for Jost.
