Last Modified: Aug 18, 2021
Colin Jost has confirmed that he and his wife Scarlett Johansson are expecting their first child together- adding he can't wait to become a dad.
The Saturday Night Live co-head writer and Weekend Update co-host revealed during a performing at a stand-up gig at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut over the weekend.
“We’re having a baby, it’s exciting,” PageSix reported Jost’s announcement, citing to a source in the audience. Back in July, the outlet had revealed that the 36-year-old is pregnant and due soon.
The Avengers actress first sparked pregnancy rumors in June after she skipped several Black Widow events. Instead, she promoted the Black Window, in which she stars and is an executive producer, via Zoom- appearing virtually on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and later on Seth Meyers’ show. In both the interviews, Johansson conspicuously only shot from the shoulders up.
The couple had quietly married in October 2020 after three years of dating.
This is the first marriage and first child for Jost, 39, while for Johansson this is the third marriage and second child. She was married to Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011, Romain Dauriac from 2014 to 2017, and had welcomed daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac in 2014.
Amid a lawsuit with Disney, she already has worked lined up as she was cast in Wes Anderson’s latest movie alongside Margot Robbie, Tom Hanks, Adrien Brody, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, and Tilda Swinton.
