19 Aug – Amid the brouhaha over her lawsuit against Disney, Scarlett Johansson has given birth to her first child with husband Colin Jost, and it's a boy.
The news was first confirmed by the actress' rep, Marcel Pariseau, before Jost went on Instagram to announce the good news on 18 August, writing, "Ok, ok, we had a baby. His name is Cosmo. We love him very much. Privacy would be greatly appreciated."
He then jokingly added, "For all inquiries, please contact our publicist @chethinks," referring to fellow SNL comedian and Weekend Update partner, Michael Che.
This is the second child for Johansson, though baby Cosmo is her first with the said comedian. She is already a mother to daughter Rose Dorothy from her second marriage to Romain Dauriac. Her first marriage which ended in 2011, was to Ryan Reynolds.
Johansson, who met Jost while guesting for "Saturday Night Live", tied the knot with him in October 2020.
