Scarlett and Colin have been married since 2020

Many others expressed their surprise in the comments, as Colin had only confirmed the news of the pregnancy on Tuesday during a comedy gig.

Someone in the audience told Page Six, the comedian said: "We're having a baby, it's exciting." Regardless of the punchline that came after, that was the first major confirmation of the news.

The same publication reported that the Avengers actress was pregnant all the way back in June when she was skipping press events, although it was initially chalked up to just speculation.

Congratulations to the couple!
