‘Black Widow’ star Scarlett Johansson expecting baby with husband Colin Jost: Report

Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson and comedian Colin Jost who tied the knot in October 2020, are reportedly expecting their first child.

According to a report by Page Six, the Oscar-nominated actress is due soon.

An insider told the portal, “Scarlett is pregnant but has been keeping it very quiet. She has been keeping a very low profile."

"I know she and Colin are thrilled," added another.

The news comes after Scarlett skipped the promotions of her latest release ‘Black Widow’. Instead, she has been carrying out all the interactions via Zoom.

Scarlett and Colin were wed in an intimate ceremony over the weekend, as per a post by the Meals on Wheels America Instagram account. Johansson's representative also confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter.

The programme shared the news of the couple's nuptials, adding Johansson and Jost's "wedding wish" was for people to support Meals on Wheels America via donations and "help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time."

The 35-year-old star Johansson and Jost got engaged in May 2019 after dating for two years.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the 'Lucy' star Johansson, was previously married to Ryan Reynolds and journalist Romain Dauriac, with whom she has a daughter named Rose, who was born in 2014.

This is the first marriage for the 36-year-old Jost, who is the co-head writer at SNL and co-anchor of 'Weekend Update.'

On work front, 'Black Widow' has Johansson reprising her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh is starring as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz will be Melina.

Johansson has played Black Widow, a major role in seven Marvel movies, tracking her evolution from a morally dubious Russian assassin to a world-saving Avenger.

In the upcoming film, pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger. What's even more interesting is that viewers will witness the new Marvel villain, Taskmaster.

The movie, helmed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, will hit the theatres and will be available to be stream on Disney+ Premier on July 9.
