Scarlett Johansson‘s revealed that most folks miss how her kids’ names are connected.

Scarlett Johansson Says Most People Miss The ‘Connection’ Her Two Kids’ Names Have
In an interview on Monday with Kelly Clarkson, Johansson joked that they’d just thrown letters together to create the name Cosmo.
“It just seemed like a refreshing — I just thought it was so charming,” she said. “And then our friends all liked it.”
She added that Jost’s mom took a while to get on board but eventually came around.
Clarkson commented that both Rose and Cosmo are types of flowers.
“Not a lot of people make that connection,” Johansson replied. “Cosmo is a really sweet little flower that comes in different shades of orange and yellow.”
Jost and Johansson shared their baby news on August 18, 2021.
“OK OK, we had a baby. His name is Cosmo. We love him very much,” Jost wrote on Instagram at the time, jokingly using the opportunity to direct all media inquiries to his “Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update” co-host, Michael Che.
Jost is Johansson’s third husband. In addition to French journalist Dauriac, to whom she was married to for about three years ending in 2017, she was previously married to Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011.
In an interview with TODAY in April 2022, she shared how being home during the pandemic after welcoming her son allowed her the “space to make a nest and enjoy all that.”
She added that while she normally takes back-to-back projects, when Hollywood was “forced” to slow down due to COVID-19, she’d been able to practice mindfulness.
“It allowed me to be thoughtful about how I wanted to spend my time, and what I wanted to prioritize and I think that I’ll carry that with me forever.”
Earlier this year, Johansson, 36, filed a lawsuit against Disney in Los Angeles, alleging the conglomerate breached her contract when it released this summer’s blockbuster Black Widow on its Disney+ streaming service at the same time that it was released in movie theaters.
In the lawsuit, which was obtained by PEOPLE, Johansson said her Black Widow contract with Disney’s Marvel Entertainment was for a guaranteed movie theater release, with the bulk of her salary depending largely on the film’s box office performance.
“Disney intentionally induced Marvel’s breach of the agreement, without justification, to prevent Ms. Johansson from realizing the full benefit of her bargain with Marvel,” the suit said.
The parties ended up settling in September.
