Sources close to the media announced that the actress is expecting her second child and the first with comedian Colin Jost.
A few days after the premiere of Scarlett Johansson's new film, it was announced that the actress is pregnant with what would be her second child.
This information was later confirmed on the entertainment site Page Six who revealed that sources close to the outlet announced that the actress is expecting her second child and the first with comedian Colin Jost.
The pregnancy of the protagonist of Black Widow was suspected at the beginning of June, when she avoided going in person to the events for the promotion of the film of Marvel's Universe that opens in theaters, in the Mexican Republic, on July 8 and also by Premier Access from the Disney + platform.
One of the sources that revealed this news mentioned to Page Six: "(The baby of) Scarlett is coming soon, I know that she and Colin are delighted." Another close person mentioned that "she is pregnant, but she has kept it very quiet. She has kept a very low profile. "
One of the people who confirmed the actress's pregnancy revealed that it was strange that she did not have face-to-face encounters for the Black Widow movie.
"It's a great Marvel / Disney release, and she is both the star and the executive producer," which was more suspicious, as the actress had a low profile during these months and did not go unnoticed by anyone.
One of the actress's absences was during the screening of Black Widow in the Hamptons last Friday, in which only her co-star David Harbor appeared. He also didn't go to Mariska Hargitay's house premiere, even though Scarlett and her husband own a house in Montauk.
And according to what Page Six tells us that Scarlett Johansson "used to spend much of the summer in Amagansett and Montauk, and you often saw her walking her dogs on the beach or having coffee. But this summer, it looks like she's deliberately trying to keep a low profile. "
