Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson is rumored to be pregnant with her second child with husband Colin Jost.
This speculation comes after Johansson skipped out on the live events for her movie Black Widow, much to fans’ dismay.
The new arrival will be Johansson’s second child. She previously welcomed daughter Rose, now 6, with ex-husband Romain Dauriac.
Johansson and the Saturday Night Live star, 39, quietly tied the knot in October 2020 after three years of dating. This will be his first child.
Despite Johansson playing the title character in the movie, she was not in attendance at its premiere or other live press events. After a source told Page Six that Johansson is expecting her second child, fans quickly took to Twitter to share their conspiracies.
Page Six credited multiple sources for confirming the pregnancy announcement. One source was quoted saying, “Scarlett is pregnant but has been keeping it very quiet. She has been keeping a very low profile.”
Another source agreed with the fan speculation surrounding Johansson’s recent absence from high-profile events. They expressed, “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.”
Instead, she’s been carrying out promotional appearances via Zoom, appearing virtually on the Tonight Show to chat with Jimmy Fallon on June 21, 2021, and only shot from the shoulders up.
