Scarlett Johansson is going to be a mom! The 29-year-old Her actress is expecting her first child with fiance Romain Dauriac, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

Johansson’s pregnancy news comes six months after her rep confirmed to Us back in September that she was engaged to French journalist Dauriac. The couple first went public with their romance in November 2012.

During a Jan. 15 appearance on Good Morning America, Johansson said their wedding was “far off.” “I’m not doing any wedding planning,” she said at the time.

The Don Jon actress, who was once married to Ryan Reynolds, revealed in the October 2013 issue of Esquire that Dauriac helped make her a less jealous person. “I didn’t think I was a jealous person until I started dating my current, my one-and-only,” she shared. “I think maybe in the past I didn’t have the same kind of investment. Not that I liked my partner less, I just wasn’t capable of it or caring that much.”

Scarlett Johansson is going to be a mom! The 29-year-old beauty is expecting her first child with fiancé Romain Dauriac, multiple sources confirm to E! News.
The pregnancy news comes just six months after it was announced that the Oscar-nominated actress is planning to tie the knot with her French journalist beau. E! News confirmed the couple was engaged in September after ScarJo flashed her vintage Art Deco ring on that finger at the Venice Film Festival, with her rep adding that the lovebirds are “very happy.”
The expectant couple went public with their relationship in November 2012, not long after Johansson ended a roughly year-long romance with Nate Naylor. She and Ryan Reynolds divorced in July 2011 after almost three years of marriage. He tied the knot with Blake Lively last September.
And despite her whirlwind romance with Dauriac, Johansson is in no rush to walk down the aisle.
“I’m not doing any wedding planning,” the Her star said with a smile during an appearance on Good Morning America on Wednesday, Jan. 15, adding that swapping vows with her hunky man is “far off” from her mind at the moment.
But while her nuptials may not be her main focus, the Don Jon beauty admitted to wanting children.

“I would like to have my own family, that would be nice,” she told the Daily Mail in December 2013. “They say it’s never the right time and I am sure that’s true, but I think you have to plan it like anything else.”
“At some point it is something I look forward to,” she continued. “I am fortunate in that I have had a long career—20 years—that has been very diverse. So, you know, picking a time to plan a family feels like something that I could do and not feel as though I was missing out.”
Which is a far cry from what she told Elle U.K. in December 2012, admitting to the publication that she “never” thought about marriage.
“It’s really not important to me,” she said. “The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me, ‘Would I get married again?'”

“I’m not having kids anytime soon,” she added. “I’m in a nice relationship, I’m working a lot and, like I said, it’s not important to me.”
Oh, how times have changed.

It’s release date is over a year away, but details are already emerging about the sequel “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

In a recent interview with Parade magazine, Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow, hinted, “I think the script is dark and it’s dry. It’s got this amazing one-liner, glass-cutting sense of humor.”

However, it’s not going to be another unoriginal money-making attempt trying to capitalize on the success of the first film. She adds, “Obviously the script is very cerebral. It doesn’t lose that exciting comic book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it’s smart and it feels like the next installment. It doesn’t feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plotlines are moving forward.” “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015.

As Scarlett Johansson’s latest flick “Her” continues to gain Oscar-buzz, the blonde bombshell reveals there is one “person” that’s not a big fan.

During her interview with Parade magazine, the 29-year-old actress chats Siri’s distaste of Scarlett’s voice in the film and shares details about her upcoming wedding plans.

Highlights from Miss Johansson’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Parade!

On “Her”:
“It’s great when people like the work that you do. The experience making this film was such a different challenge for me because I came in during the post-production process. The work that I did with Spike and Joaquin was such an intimate, heightened kind of experience. It was just a totally different way of working. I wasn’t a part of the months of prep and all that stuff, so I didn’t know what the film really looked like. When I saw it all put together, the fact that it was cohesive and quite poignant, I felt really moved by it, that the relationship works, and that people respond to it—that was a gift more than any rewards or praise. The fact that the audience is responding to the relationship, that they get it, that’s cool. It’s heart-lifting, it’s heart wrenching, it’s a real study of a full relationship that is life-changing and grows. I think everybody can kind of watch it and think, ‘oh, I’ve had that conversation, that’s the worst feeling’ or ‘that’s so embarrassing’ or ‘I loved that moment.’ But then when it’s with a computer, it’s a whole other added thing.”

On lending her voice for the film:
“More than anything, the difficult part was that I never thought about her being this operating system. And of course she feels different, she has a different sensibility, things have a different type of meaning to her. The depth of her relationship, how you can love somebody, or how that can exist is different for her. She says that to Theodore, she says to him, ‘I can love you this way and you might not be able to love me this way because we’re different.’ So it was hard to wrap your head around what that meant because it kind of transcends what you know. It has an otherworldly sentiment. The way that she thinks and how she evolves kind of transcends time and space and expands. And that was kind of hard to imagine, but of course the core of Samantha is her enthusiasm at that expansion and that enthusiasm for everything. She’s excited about herself, her ability, and that she’s separate. She’s her own being. Once she realizes these feelings are separate from feelings that are programmed, that she can have her own feelings, she discovers that independence, she’s unstoppable. So that’s what I mostly focused on. The ‘how can she see him? She doesn’t have eyes?’ That kind of stuff. People can go in a tailspin about that.”

On Siri’s jealousy towards Samantha:
“The other day Marcel [Pariseau, her rep] emailed me something ‘Siri doesn’t like Samantha’ or ‘Siri doesn’t like the movie’ or something, which is funny. I was like, ‘who programs it to be so topical?’ I thought about that. Did someone have to write that, how does that work? I don’t know. Do they have to come up with a strategy for how to answer that? Who’s the personality? I know the voice of the woman came out recently, but who’s the decision maker as to what kind of sass or whatever that Siri’s going to give you? I usually ask her things like, ‘do I look ok in this?’ She always responds, ‘you’re the fairest of them all,’ and I’m like, ‘I love you, Siri!’”

On SodaStream:
“Well it is a Super Bowl commercial, so it’s flashy and the product is fun. Of course it’s bubbly, so they wanted to kind of get that across. I’ve never done a Super Bowl commercial before and it’s a huge production. I think the idea is that it’s supposed to feel like a big, eye-catching moment. You want to make sure that people understand the environmental benefits, health benefits, lifestyle benefits in a 30 second spot. It’s a lot of information, plus the eye-catching part to capture.”

On her wedding:
“I’m busy planning ‘Avengers 2′ right now! That’s my main focus. I’ve never been a big planning kind of person. I’d never share it with anybody, but I think more than anything I feel really fortunate to have had this amazing year professionally. And I think when all that smoke settles I’ll be able to … I don’t feel like I need to rush that part of my life. I can let that happen organically. Right now it feels like a time to enjoy and be relaxed and that’s what works for us.”

In issue 215 of Total Film magazine, Scarlett Johansson tells us that she was initially unsure about making Avengers Assemble because it seemed like such a “ridiculous” idea.

Inside the issue – which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad – Johansson reveals that she was initially sceptical about Marvel’s grand plan after making Iron Man 2.

“The idea of it is ridiculous!” she says. “When they told me that was the next step, I said, ‘Oh, no! That is a disaster! You saw Thor, you saw Captain America, you saw Iron Man, those things don’t go together!'”

Since starring in the third highest-grossing film of all time (Avengers, ahead of this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier), she’s come around.

Revealing that she’s expecting the script for Avengers: Age Of Ultron “any day now”, she promises “when it comes you can guarantee it’ll be read in 25 minutes”.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on 28 March 2014.

Scarlett Johansson admits she often worries about her figure changing. The actress is considered one of the most beautiful women in the industry and was voted Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine this year and in 2006.

Despite her gorgeous looks, the 29-year-old insists she has just as much of an issue with confidence as other women.

“Erm… yeah, I mean, I’m human!” she laughed to Total Film when asked if she has doubts about her figure.

“I’m a girl – you wake up every day and go, ‘Oh, what changed while I slept?’”

Scarlett’s looks often get her noticed while out and about, with paparazzi and fans all wanting to get to her.

While most women would love to look like her, the actress isn’t always at ease with the attention.

“Just the fact that I’m public recognised alone can be very isolating,” she sighed.

“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to be more able to be with myself. I feel more [comfortable] in my own skin… I feel more relaxed.”

With the Christmas season in full swing, Scarlett is thinking about all the festive food.

She won’t deny herself some treats over the holiday, but is always keen to stay active.

“I am one of those people who feels bloated if I sit around too long eating and drinking and not exercising,” she explained to British magazine You. “So I may hit the gym a bit more [in the New Year], but not as punishment or out of guilt but because I feel physically and mentally better when I exercise. And it’s nice time out for myself.”

Knocking one possible award off her impressive list, Scarlett Johansson will not be bringing home a Golden Globe for her work in “Her.”

According to various reports, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has ruled that Johansson’s voice-only performance in Spike Jonze’s film will not be eligible. A member of the association explained that in order to be nominated, the actor has to have a physical presence onscreen.

In the film, Scarlett portrays Samantha, an operating system for a near-future computer device. During the course of the flick, Samantha begins to form a relationship with her installer, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix).
