The actress’s rep, Marcel Pariseau, exclusively confirmed the baby news to the outlet. The Black Widow actress also has a six-year-old daughter, Rose Dorothy Dauriac, whom she shares with ex-husband Romain Dauriac.

Jost also took to Instagram to share that the pair’s new bundle of joy is a baby boy and apparently, his name is Cosmo.
“Ok ok, we had a baby,” wrote Jost in an Instagram post. “His name is Cosmo. We love him very much. Privacy would be greatly appreciated,” continued Jost before jokingly requesting that all press requests go towards his SNL costar, Michael Che.
The Saturday Night Live star recently confirmed the news that the pair were expecting their first child together at a stand-up show at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut last week.
“We’re having a baby, it’s exciting,” Jost reportedly told showgoers during his set.
This marks the couple’s first child together since marrying in October of 2020, but is the second child for Johansson. The couple married in an “intimate” ceremony and announced the news of their nuptials with a post shared on the Meals on Wheels charity’s official Instagram account.
“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 loved ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions as directed by the CDC,” the account wrote at the time. “Their wedding wish is to help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time by supporting @mealsonwheelsamerica. Please consider donating to celebrate the happy couple by clicking the link in our bio.”
Jost and Johansson’s baby news first broke in July, with Page Six reporting the actress’s pregnancy as the reason for her doing minimal promotional press for her latest Marvel film, Black Widow. Though the film marked one of the most successful box office debuts amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, which has slashed ticket sales, Johansson is currently suing Disney for not including streaming profits from the film in her initial contract.
