In a recent development, Hollywood actor Scarlett Johansson’s husband Colin Jost has confirmed his wife’s pregnancy and that he cannot wait to become a father. This comes while he was performing at a stand-up comedy at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut over the weekend.
“We’re having a baby, it’s exciting,” he said, PageSix quoted a source in the audience as said. This comes after the portal reported in July that the Marvel star was pregnant and due soon.
Meanwhile, the Hollywood star has a 6-year-old daughter named Rose from her previous marriage to Frenchman Romain Dauriac. In October 2020, she married comedian Colin Jost after three years of dating.
The rumours of her pregnancy began to spread like wildfire after she skipped several of her Black Widow film promotions.

Speaking to PageSix, a source said, “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.”
However, she chose to carry out the promotional appearances via Zoom and appeared virtually on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on June 21, only shot from the shoulders up.
Meanwhile, Johansson is in an ugly legal battle with Disney, alleging that her contract was breached when her Black Widow film was released on Disney Plus. She said that her agreement with Disney-owned Marvel Entertainment involved a guarantee that the film will exclusively be released in theatres and her salary was based on the box-office performance of the movie.
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.”
However, Disney slammed back, calling her suit “distressing”.
