Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are reportedly expecting a baby. On July 6, Page Six reported that Johansson has been keeping her pregnancy under wraps and that she is due to give birth "soon." This will be Jost's first child and Johansson's second, as she shares six-year-old daughter Rose with her ex-husband, Romain Dauriac.
A source told Page Six about Johansson's reported pregnancy, "Scarlett is actually due soon, I know she and Colin are thrilled." A separate insider added, "Scarlett is pregnant but has been keeping it very quiet. She has been keeping a very low profile." Johansson was at the center of pregnancy rumors in June when she did not attend events for her new film, Black Widow. A source even told the outlet about the actor's absence from those events, "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."
Johansson has also been absent from Black Widow events that have been held in New York, Los Angeles, and London. There was a screening of the Marvel film in the Hamptons on Friday, attended by Johansson's Black Widow co-star David Harbour. Although, she did not appear at the screening even though she and Jost have a home in nearby Montauk that they frequent. Page Six's Hamptons source said, "Scarlett usually spends a lot of the summer out in Amagansett and Montauk, and you'd often see her walking her dogs on the beach or getting coffee. But this summer, it seems like she is deliberately trying to keep a low profile."
This report comes less than a year after Johansson and Jost tied the knot. After three years of dating, the two wed in a small ceremony in October 2020. The newly married couple announced the news with some help from Meals on Wheels. In their announcement, Johansson and Jost indicated that their "wedding wish" would be for people to consider donating to Meals on Wheels to help vulnerable adults amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization's statement about the news read, "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 love ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions as directed by the CDC."
