Rumours first appeared last month when the actress was spotted wearing a slender diamond band.
And Scarlett Johansson has indeed secretly married her fiancé Romain Dauriac, it was confirmed on Monday by a clerk for Granite County, who unveiled that the happy couple married on October 1 in Philipsburg, Montana.
“Scarlett and Romain were married in a very intimate ceremony after the birth of their daughter,” a source told reporters. “They kept the wedding a big secret because they both wanted privacy.”
Despite previous reports and rumors, the “Avengers” star and French journalist Dauriac did not tie the knot in their hometowns of New York City and Paris, but exchanged vows in Montana.
Scarlett Johansson and fiancé Romain Dauriac have welcomed their first child back in September.
Baby daughter Rose Dorothy was born in New York City. The baby’s middle name is an homage to Johansson’s grandmother, whom she called “the first Francophone in my family” while accepting her honorary César in Paris last February.
“Mother and daughter are doing well,” publicist Marcel Pariseau said at the time.
“She is telling friends that she is not getting married until after the baby,” the insider dished at the time.
“I would like to have my own family, that would be nice. 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,” the actress said in one of her interviews said.
“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.”
Johansson, who was preevuously married to Ryan Reynolds, revealed in the October 2013 issue of Esquire that her new boyfriend 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.”
She went on, speaking of her new fiance: “Look, I’m with a Frenchman. I think jealousy comes with the territory. But I’d rather be with someone who’s a little jealous than someone who’s never jealous. There’s something a little dead fish about them. A little bit depressing. It may not make sense, but you need to feel it a little.”
