Can you hear the wedding bells ringing? Scarlett Johansson’s rep has announced ScarJo is indeed engaged to hunky Frenchman Romain Dauriac. “I can confirm that Scarlett and Romain are engaged,” the rep said in a statement published by Us Weekly. “They haven't chosen a date for the wedding.” That's okay. We’re sure our save the date card is in the mail.

Start your grieving now, ScarJo fans. The 28-year-old blonde bombshell is once again off the market. People magazine reports Scarlett Johansson is engaged to her boyfriend of almost a year, Romain Dauriac.
"They’re engaged and very happy,” a source told People. A rep for Scarlett had no comment for the magazine.
News that Scarlett was dating the French journalist broke last November (as did millions of hearts). The two have kept a low profile throughout their relationship with People reporting they may have kept their engagement a secret for more than a month.
As for the ring, Scarlett was recently spotted wearing a vintage Art Deco diamond ring at the Venice International Film Festival, where she’s been promoting her new movie, Under the Skin. To be fair, it’s not the first time she’s toyed with our emotions by putting a ring on that all important finger. Now, though, it sounds like she was just saving a spot for the real deal.
Of course, Scarlett’s first husband, Ryan Reynolds, already beat her down the aisle; he and wife Blake Lively got hitched last September. Seeing as the couple’s one-year anniversary is next Monday, this seems like optimal timing for happy news from Ryan’s ex to leak. Well-played, ScarJo. Well-played.
