CONGRATULATIONS are in order for Hollywood couple Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost.
The celebrity pair have welcomed their first baby together. Colin, 39, took to Instagram to confirm the news himself after Scarlett’s rep Marcel Pariseau confirmed the news to People.
When did Scarlett Johansson give birth?
Colin confirmed his wife was pregnant while performing a stand-up gig in Connecticut in August 2021.
Previously, another source told Page Six the Black Widow actress was pregnant but was “trying to keep a low profile.”
Scarlett gave birth on August 18, 2021, her representative confirmed.
What is the name of Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost’s baby?
When Colin announced the big news on social media, he also revealed the name of the new bundle of joy.
“Oh ok we had a baby,” he wrote on Instagram.
“His name is Cosmo. We love him very much.”
In the caption, the Saturday Night Live star added, “#wegotawaywithitforalongtime #nokidspolicy #we’regoingtodisneyworld.”
Some people on social media couldn’t believe that was actually the name the couple chose for their newborn son.
“Next one name Wanda?” one person wrote in Colin’s Instagram comments, and another person added, “Cosmo Wanda Jost,” clearly referring to the Fairly OddParents cartoon characters.
Do Colin Jost or Scarlett Johansson have any more kids?
This is actually 36-year-old Scarlett’s second child.
Baby Cosmo is her first kid with Colin, but she welcomed her first child, Rose, 6, back in 2014 with her ex-husband Romain Dauriac.
“She shadows me, like, all the time which is wonderful,” Scarlett said on The Kelly Clarkson Show back in July 2021.
“And I know that it’s something that I’m sure in a few years she’s not going to want to have anything to do with me and I should soak it all up.”
Scarlett and Colin married in October 2020 in an “intimate ceremony” where Covid precautions were said to be taken due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
This is Colin’s first child and he wrote on the Instagram announcement that “privacy would be greatly appreciated.”
