Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost became husband and wife in an intimate ceremony in October 2020. The two had been dating for two years before announcing their engagement in May 2019, complete with a stunning 11-carat engagement ring. Just recently, the couple welcomed a bouncing baby boy named Cosmo to their growing family in August 2021. Scarlett’s daughter from her previous marriage, Rose, also adds to the floral name connection within their family.

It’s fascinating to learn that Cosmo’s name wasn’t an easy decision for Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson. Despite the chaos surrounding the naming process, they eventually settled on a beautiful name that aligned with their daughter’s name. According to People, Scarlett revealed that it took some time for her mother-in-law to warm up to the name. She kept suggesting alternative names, but Scarlett was firm about sticking with Cosmo since the baby had already arrived. Scarlett recalled saying, “No, he’s already here, he’s out,” whenever her mom suggested other versions of the name.

Scarlett shared that her daughter, Rose Dorothy, gave her blessing to the name of her new baby boy.
