“The Avengers” actress and her fiance, Romain Dauriac, have welcomed their first child, Rose. The news, which The Times has confirmed, came Thursday via the Associated Press.
Mother and daughter are doing well, her rep told the AP, without revealing a birth date or any further details. He added that the pair were seeking privacy as they are supporters of the No Kids Policy, an effort to keep celebrity kids and their unauthorized photos away from prying eyes.
Johansson, 29, who was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds, has been engaged to the French journalist since September 2013. The actress’ pregnancy news broke back in March just as she was promoting Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” in which she reprises her role as Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. Black Widow.
The actress never publicly addressed the pregnancy; however, “Avengers” producer Kevin Feige confirmed the baby news to Collider shortly after it went viral and said her pregnancy did not affect the upcoming installments in the franchise.
The former Oxfam global ambassador managed to lie low for months after that and skirted her way around a handful of promotional appearances including one for “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” at Comic-Con in July and a press tour for her thriller “Lucy.”
The blond bombshell was spotted sporting a new ‘do in late July just as reports indicated that her marriage to Dauriac was imminent.
Rose’s middle name is said to be Dorothy, People reported, an homage to the actress’ grandmother Dorothy, whom Johansson called “the first Francophone in my family” when she accepted her honorary César last summer in Paris.
