1. Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are having a baby

Scarlett Johansson has been conspicuously absent during the promotions for her new movie, Black Widow, leading some to wonder if there was some behind-the-scenes friction between the actress and the Marvel team. Turns out her absence was due to nothing nearly as sinister: On Wednesday, Page Six learned that Johansson is pregnant with her first child with her husband Colin Jost. One insider explained that Johansson is "due soon," while another said the 36-year-old actress has intentionally "been keeping it very quiet. She has been keeping a very low profile." The baby will be Johansson's second child; she shares a 6-year-old daughter with her ex-husband, Romain Dauriac.
