Blended families are all very different. Some never find a way to get along, others coexist peacefully but never become too close, and the luckiest ones develop an important bond that transcends blood. That seems to be the case of the relationship between Scarlett Johansson‘s daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac and Colin Jost.
The little girl was only three years old when her mother started dating Colin, and she apparently took a liking to her stepfather immediately. The two of them have a very close relationship, and now that ScarJo and Colin Jost have another child, the family couldn’t be happier.
6 Who Is Rose Dorothy’s Father?
The father of Scarlett Johansson’s daughter Rose Dorothy is Romain Dauriac. He’s a French journalist, and the two of them started dating in 2012. Their relationship moved fairly quickly. They were engaged within a year of dating, and in 2014 they welcomed their daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac into the world, getting married just a month after. Unfortunately, they couldn’t make it work. They didn’t share a lot of details about their split, but it seems that they weren’t really compatible. Reportedly, Romain wasn’t on board with how much Scarlett had to work and travel, and Scarlett didn’t want to be pinned down because, of course, acting is her life. So, ultimately, they had different expectations, and they decided to go their separate ways.
5 How Scarlett Johansson Handles Co-Parenting
Now that Scarlett is happily married to Colin Jost, all the personal issues she may or may not have had with Romain Dauriac are obviously behind her. But because they have a daughter together, they will forever be a part of each other’s lives, so learning to get along was a necessity. The two of them had a tense custody battle, but eventually worked things out. Even then, though, co-parenting is not without its challenges, but they both want the best for Rose, so they make it work.
“You know, understanding what it is to co-parent—that’s a very specific thing. It’s hard to raise a child with someone you’re no longer with. It’s hard,” she explained to Vanity Fair. “It’s not probably how it’s ‘supposed to be’—in quotes—or whatever…. But, you know, I think my ex and I do it as well as we can. You have to prioritize your child and not put yourself in the middle. It has its challenges.”
4 Scarlett Johansson’s Relationship With Colin Jost
After her divorce, Scarlett found love again with Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost. She had met him years ago in 2006, but her first memory of him was in 2010 when she appeared on SNL and participated in a parody of Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant that he had written.
It was in 2017 that the two of them officially announced their relationship, shortly after Scarlett’s second divorce was formally finalized. They took their time before getting married, which was probably a good thing, especially considering Scarlett’s daughter, but it was worth the wait.
3 How Does Rose Dorothy Feel About Her Stepfather?
When dating a parent, it’s always important to make sure the child is comfortable with the situation. The new partner doesn’t necessarily have to become a parental figure or be close with the kid, but it’s essential that they get along. Luckily, little Rose didn’t only get along with Colin, but immediately accepted him into the family, which undoubtedly made the transition easier. According to a source, Scarlett’s daughter “adores” Colin. “He treats her like she’s his own daughter, and they have an unbreakable bond.”
2 What Colin Jost And Rose Dorothy Enjoy Doing Together
Ever since Scarlett and Colin got together, Colin took it upon himself to bond with her daughter, so by the time the couple was engaged, they were best buddies.
“Colin puts Scarlett and Rose before himself, his career and everything else,” said an inside source. “He never complains about running errands. He’ll happily keep Rose entertained when Scarlett needs time for herself.”
Colin is not only happy to take care of her, though. The two of them also have a lot of fun together. Apparently, their favorite things to do together is going “to the park, bike riding or swimming in the pool.”
1 Their Happy Family
With the blessing of Rose Dorothy, ScarJo and Colin Jost got married in 2020, and they were excited to announce the arrival of a new member of the family last year. They named the baby Cosmo, and while Scarlett wasn’t expecting to get pregnant so soon after the wedding, she was over the moon.
“They are very private but elated over the baby,” a source told People. “They are both so happy and madly in love with the baby. They wanted this child who will fit right into their lives since they already have her daughter. They are an awesome couple, both talented, smart and clever. They will be the best parents.”
The family seems to be on cloud nine, and surely the 7-year-old girl is enjoying being a big sister in a house full of love.
