It is reported that Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson and her husband, comedian and actor Colin Jost, have welcomed their first child together.

US celebrity publication People said Johansson's representative confirmed to it that the couple's child was born recently. No further details were given.

On Sunday, Jost had said during his stand-up act on stage at Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut: "We're having a baby, it's exciting. I can't wait to become a dad."

Johansson and Jost tied the knot during an intimate ceremony attended by family and friends in October 2020.

The 36-year-old Marriage Story actress and the 39-year-old SNL star wed after getting engaged in May 2019.

The couple confirmed their marriage news through the Instagram account for Meals On Wheels America.

"We're thrilled to break the news that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were married over the weekend in an intimate ceremony with their immediate family and love ones," the post said.

Johansson has been married twice previously, to actor Ryan Reynolds and to journalist Romain Dauriac.

She and Dauriac have a daughter called Rose together, who was born in 2014.

This is Jost's first marriage. Speaking in October, two-time Oscar nominee Johansson said Jost's engagement was like a "James Bond situation".

She told Ellen DeGeneres: "He did, he killed it. It was a very James Bond situation. It was surprising."
