This will be the first child for Jost, who is a stand-up comedian, actor and writer. 

Johansson also has a six-year-old daughter, Rose, to her former husband Romain Dauriac. 

Scarlett and Colin married in October 2020, but kept the occasion very private—as has been the case for much of their romance. 

She has also kept a low-key presence over the past few months, opting for Zoom interviews over in-person press junkets while promoting her new film, Black Widow

Her due date is unknown, though it may not be too far away given reports last week the actress has signed onto a new Wes Anderson film, also set to star Margot Robbie, Tom Hanks and Tilda Swinton.
