Scarlett Johansson and husband Colin Jost welcome first baby together just days after SNL star confirmed her pregnancy

SCARLETT Johansson and Colin Jost have welcomed their first baby together.

The SNL comedian, 39, had just confirmed they were expecting during a stand-up gig at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut days ago.


Details surrounding the birth, which was confirmed to People by Scarlett’s rep Marcel Pariseau, and the baby's name and gender have not yet been revealed.

The famous couple secretly tied the knot last year after dating for three years.

Scarlett, 36, is also mom to daughter Rose, 6, with ex Romain Dauriac.

A source told Page Six that while the Colin was performing in Connecticut, he let the pregnancy news out of the bag.

"We’re having a baby, it’s exciting,” he told the audience, according to the insider who was in attendance.

Back in July, another source told the outlet the A-lister was pregnant, but was "trying to keep a low profile."

The happy baby news comes as the Black Widow star is in quite the battle with Disney.

The 36-year-old is suing the powerhouse company for $50million, as she alleged the company is in breach of contract because her deal was for an exclusive theatrical release for the film, according to Wall Street Journal.

Meanwhile, Black Widow was released in both theaters and on Disney+ on July 9.

A large portion of the actress' salary for the Marvel film was reportedly based on its box office revenue.

Disney hit back at Scarlett's lawsuit in a statement: “There is no merit whatsoever to this filing…"

Scarlett and Colin got married in an "intimate ceremony" last year where Covid precautions were said to be taken.

The movie star opened up a bit about the ceremony, revealing on Late Night with Seth Meyers: "It was a little stressful.

"Colin, as you know, is very fortunate that he has his grandparents still with him and there are several people in their 90s in his family. The Josts live forever! They live so long!

"And it's crazy. And they are lively and vibrant and they were at our wedding and so obviously we wanted to take every precaution that we could.

"So we had the masks made [that said] 'Josts 2020.' And everybody had to get tested 100,000 times."
