Colin Jost Reportedly Confirms Wife Scarlett Johansson Is Pregnant As Actress Prepares To Go To War With Disney
The rumors are true: Scarlett Johansson is pregnant!
After much speculation, the 36-year-old A-lister’s hunky hubby Colin Jost reportedly confirmed the news over the weekend.
While performing a stand-up routine in Connecticut, the Saturday Night Live star blurted out the happy news. “We’re having a baby, it’s exciting,” he told the audience, Page Six reported.
Rumors of the Avengers star having a bun in the oven began to surface in early July. OK! reported the actress "is actually due soon,” a source dished at the time. “I know she and Colin are thrilled.”
“Scarlett is pregnant but has been keeping it very quiet,” an insider spilled. “She has been keeping a very low profile.” The source also pointed out that the beauty had skipped out on several Black Widow promotional events and was conspicuously doing Zoom-only interviews, seemingly to hide her body.
Johansson also shares 4-year-old daughter Rose with ex-husband Romain Dauriac.
The news of the Oscar-nominated actress' pregnancy comes on the heels of Johansson preparing to battle Disney over the release of Black Widow.
As OK! previously reported, the Lucy star sued Disney last month, alleging the studio breached her contract by releasing Black Widow in theaters and their streaming service Disney+ simultaneously.
She claimed she was screwed out of millions of dollars by the Marvel film being made available to purchase on the streaming service. Since her compensation for the film was tied to “box office receipts,” the more money the film made in theaters, the more bonus checks she would receive.
Disney doubled down on their decision and dismissed Johansson’s suit, saying “there is no merit whatsoever” to the complaint. They slammed the actress’ breach of contract lawsuit for showing “callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” reported Fox Business.
The company alleged she had already received a hefty paycheck for the film and that “the release of Black Widow on Disney+ with Premier Access has significantly enhanced her ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $20M she has received to date.”
