Scarlett Johansson is pregnant and will be having her first child with her husband Colin Jost pretty soon.
Multiple sources have told Page Six that, “Scarlett is actually due soon, I know she and Colin are thrilled.”
Another source added, “Scarlett is pregnant but has been keeping it very quiet. She has been keeping a very low profile.”
The Black Widow star sparked pregnancy rumors in June after skipping out on several in-person promotional events for the movie that debuts this Friday (July 9). “She hasn’t been doing many interviews or events to promote Black Widow which is surprising since it is a huge Marvel/Disney release and she is both the star and an executive producer,” the source explained.
Instead, the 36-year-old actress has been conducting appearances via Zoom, like on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on June 21 and only shot from the shoulders up.
Per the media outlet, she was also absent from a Black Widow screening in the Hamptons this past Friday — attended by her co-star David Harbour and followed by a party at Mariska Hargitay’s home — even though she and Jost own a home in Montauk, where they’re frequently seen.
The new addition to the family will be Johansson’s second child; she has a 6-year-old daughter Rose with ex-husband Romain Dauriac. Johansson and the Saturday Night Live star tied the knot in October 2020 after three years of dating. This will be Jost’s first child.
The pair met on the set of SNL in 2006 but weren’t romantically linked until May 2017, when they were spotted kissing at an after-party, a few months after Johansson filed for divorce from Dauriac. They made their relationship public in December that year, announcing their engagement in May 2019.
Johansson called Jost “the love of my life” while appearing on SNL in December 2019. The 39-year-old Jost wrote of Johansson in his 2020 memoir, A Very Punchable Face: “I’ve met someone I love. And who I feel more comfortable with than I ever have before.”
