Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac, who just welcomed their first child together in September, were spotted out and about in New York City last week for the first time in several weeks. The couple managed to spark marriage rumors in that short time, as Dauriac was reportedly wearing a gold ring.
Although it’s no secret that the duo have been engaged since late 2013, the presence of a ring on Dauriac’s finger may mean the two decided to exchange vows in secret after the birth of their daughter, Rose Dorothy. However, reps for the couple have not confirmed a wedding.
Johansson said recently that she’s happy to be moving on to the next phase of her life, as she’s tired of being pegged as the “sex symbol”.
“I don’t want to be the ingénue any more. That part I’m happy about. It’s nice to be glamorous, but I don’t want to always have to be trendy and glamorous and an object of desire. I don’t want to be stuck in that forever. Because it doesn’t last,” she said.
The actress recently signed on with Sony TV to executive produce and star in an eight-episode television series called Custom Of The Country, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name by Edith Wharton. In her first major television role, Johansson will play heroine Undine Spragg.
Johansson can also be seen next year with her return to the Marvel universe in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. The actress was pregnant during some of the film’s production, so three separate stunt actors were used to help get her through several scenes. Director Joss Whedon said recently that he was adamant about making the movie work no matter what.
“She’s not going to spend the whole movie carrying groceries. We didn’t trim any scenes. We’re like, ‘We’ll make it work,'” he told Entertainment Weekly.
