Actress Scarlett Johansson revealed that her mother-in-law, mother of comedian Colin Jost, did not approve of the couple’s grandson’s name and campaigned for dads to change their minds. The 37-year-old celebrity exposed her quarrel with her mother-in-law while participating in the program ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’, a program by actress and singer Kelly Clarkson (watch the video at the end of the text).
The former interpreter of Marvel’s Black Widow heroine has been married since 2020 to Jost. She already had Rose (8 years old), the result of her previous marriage, to French journalist Romain Dauriac, and in August 2021 she gave birth to baby Cosmo (1 year old). Both the actress and her current companion are extremely discreet on social networks and avoid exposing photos with the baby.
“We just did a bunch of letter combinations,” joked Johansson when asked about choosing her son’s name. She elaborated later: “I thought it was a charming name, so all our friends liked it, but then Colin’s mum had a little trouble getting used to it.”
“She kept saying, ‘It just seems kind of…’. It didn’t make sense to her and she kept suggesting other versions for a while, then I replied: ‘no, we’ve already chosen, it’s gone, that’s behind us’.
Kelly Clarkson then came out in defense of the name: “But I love it, because her daughter’s name is Rose [Rosa]🇧🇷 And I love that both names are from flowers! My kids hate plants, but even so I love them both… Anyway, I love flowers and plants and I thought it was really cool!”.
Johansson closed on the topic by saying: “Not everyone realizes this connection, Cosmos are very delicate flowers of different shades of orange and yellow. And that’s exactly why my daughter liked it too.”
Johansson was married to Romain Dauriac between 2014 and 2017. Before him, she was also married to actor Ryan Reynolds, between 2008 and 2011. Still in 2022 Johansson will be in theaters as part of the cast of ‘Asteroid City’, the filmmaker’s next feature Wes Anderson. Watch the video of the actress’s interview with Kelly Clarkson below:
