It's a boy for Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost. Jost announced the news on his Instagram Wednesday.

"Ok ok we had a baby. His name is Cosmo. We love him very much," Jost wrote.

No details as to when the baby was born were shared. He went on to say "privacy would be greatly appreciated."

This is the second child for Johansson, who has daughter Rose Dorothy, 7, with her ex-husband Romain Dauriac.

The actress and "SNL" star got engaged in 2019 and wed in 2020. 

Jost and Scarlett met in 2006, during an SNL episode. They got engaged in May 2019 and after three years of dating; they married later in Oct 2020. Johansson already has a six-year-old daughter named Rose Dorothy with ex-husband Romain Dauriac, with whom she was married from 2014 to 2017.

Johansson is also in the middle of an ugly dispute with Disney, regarding the breach of contract by Disney for her recent release Black Widow. Since according to the contract, Scarlett was to be paid as per the box-office collections, but Disney made the content available on their OTT platform, simultaneous to its release in theatres, thus majorly affecting the collection.

The suit stated “Disney intentionally induced Marvel’s breach of the agreement, without justification, in order to prevent Ms Johansson from realizing the full benefit of her bargain with Marvel.” Disney hit back, calling her suit ‘distressing’.

On the work front, Scarlett is known for her performances in Marriage Story, Jojo Rabbit, Hail, Caesar! and undoubtedly Black Widow. She is currently working on her big-screen comeback with Wes Anderson film, starring Tom Hanks and Margot Robbie.
