On August 14, Jost confirmed during a stand-up comedy gig that he his wife of just under a year were expecting a baby, addressing ongoing rumours for the first time.
However, just days later, on August 18, the Saturday Night Live cast member clarified that, actually, their baby has already been born.
Taking to Instagram, Jost shared a statement that read: 'Ok, ok, we had a baby... we love him very much' accompanying the image with a caption featuring a hashtag which read #wegotawaywithitforalongtime.
The comedian also revealed his baby boy's name to be Cosmo, which according to Name Berry is of greek origin and means 'order, beauty'.
Continuing his statement, Jost explained that 'privacy would be greatly appreciated' for the private couple before finishing with a joke, directing all inquiries to their 'publicist' Michael Che - his longstanding SNL cast member and fellow half of the comedy duo that present the parody 'Weekend Update' segment on the sketch show. Since then, Che has joined in on the fun changing his Instagram bio to 'Cosmo's publicist'.
Johansson and Jost married in October in a small, private ceremony in New York State, following their May 2019 engagement which was symbolised with a stunning pear-shaped engagement ring.
The couple first met in 2010 when Johansson appeared on Saturday Night Live but didn't begin dating until 2017, she later hosted the show again in 2019 telling the audience in her monologue: 'This place means so much to me. I have so many friends here and I met the love of my life here.'
Cosmo is Johansson's second child, she is already a mother to seven-year-old daughter Rose from her marriage to Romain Dauriac.
