The rumours of Scarlett Johannson expecting her first child with hubby Colin Jost have been making buzz for a long time. And looks like the rumours are true. Colin Jost has reportedly confirmed that the Black Widow star is pregnant. Yes, you read that right! According to HollywoodLife, Colin reportedly confirmed that his wife is pregnant with their first child during a stand-up gig at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut over the weekend.
The Saturday Night Live star allegedly said, "We're having a baby, it's exciting," according to an eyewitness in the audience during the stand-up gig. This will be the actress' second child, her first with husband Colin.
The actress first sparked pregnancy rumours after missing numerous "Black Widow" events in June. "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," one source explained at the time, according to Page Six. The actress made promotional appearances through Zoom, appearing virtually on "The Tonight Program" to speak with Jimmy Fallon, notably only filmed from the shoulders up - and later doing the same thing on Seth Meyers' show. A couple of days ago, Page Six broke the pregnancy news. "Scarlett is actually due soon, I know she and Colin are thrilled," their source said.
On the other hand, Scarlett is also reportedly planning her comeback to the big screen following the birth of her child. According to Hollywood Reported, Scarlett is set to appear in Wes Anderson's next film, which also stars Margot Robbie, Tom Hanks, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton and Adrien Brody.
