Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost shared in an Instagram post that he and Scarlett Johansson had their first child together.

Jost added that privacy would be “greatly appreciated.” He even jokingly tagged his “Weekend Update” co-host, Michael Che, when telling fans to direct further inquiries toward his publicist.

Che, for his part, played along with the bit, changing his Instagram bio to say “cosmo’s publicist.” He also responded to fans’ questions about the baby on his story, telling them there are other problems to worry about, writing “its one thing to be obsessed with adult strangers you admire, but like, a baby? the f—— oceans are dying, and youre writing about somebodys baby? s’matta with you.”

Johannson and Jost met through SNL as the head writer and “Weekend Update” host started in 2005, just a year before the Black Widow actress hosted for the first time. They became engaged in May 2019 and announced their marriage via a post on the Meals on Wheels Instagram account.

Cosmo is Johansson’s second child, as she shares her six-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac with journalist Romain Dauriac, whom she was married to from 2014 to 2017.

This is 39-year-old Jost’s first marriage and child.
