Scarlett Johansson is in news again. Just six months after ScarJo and her French journalist beau Romain Dauriac announced they were engaged, news reports confirmed that the couple was expecting their first child.

The Oscar-nominated actor is reportedly due in August, 2014. The expectant couple went public with their relationship in November 2012 and officially announced their engagement in October 2013. However, they have not yet announced a date for their marriage.

Dauriac had pretty much stayed out of the public eye until the two showed up together at the Venice International Film Festival in September 2013, where, no one could get their eyes off of the Art Deco-style diamond ring Johansson wore.

Interestingly though, in January 2014, Johansson went on record and said exchanging vows with Dauriac was "far off" from her mind at the moment.

It’s not exactly clear how the 28-year-old actor met the 31-year-old journalist, but many believe their love of body art brought them together. Apparently, they met through a mutual friend: ScarJo’s tattoo artist Fuzi Uvtpk.

Not much is known about Dauriac, apart from the fact that he is a French journalist who used to be the editor-in-chief of the French magazine Clark, which specializes in urban art. He is now the manager of a creative agency.

The 'Don Jon' actress, who was once married to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, has said that Dauriac has made her a jealous woman.

"I didn't think I was a jealous person until I started dating my current, my one-and-only."

"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," she had said.

Johansson, who was recently named Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, got a divorce after three years of marriage with Ryan Reynolds, who's now married to Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively.

After Ryan Reynolds, Johansson was with New York City ad executive Nate Naylor, before calling it quits in October 2012.
