The queen of curves is about to get even curvier! It seems the Her star—who announced she was engaged to French journalist Romain Dauriac just six months ago—is pulling a Christina Aguilera. That’s right, she is announcing she’s pregnant shortly after her big engagement news (and even bigger engagement ring) were revealed! But unlike Christina, this will be ScarJo’s first child.
The 29-year-old, who was married for nearly three years to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds (who has since found love again with his second wife, former Gossip Girls’ starlet Blake Lively), told People magazine back in January that she was in no hurry to say “I do.” “Being engaged is an exciting time to enjoy and to really savor,” she told the magazine. That same month, she told Good Morning America that she wasn’t doing any wedding planning at the moment—instead merely enjoying being engaged.
No news yet on whether the pregnancy was a surprise, but something Scarlett told the UK’s Daily Mail in December makes me doubt that. “They say it’s never the right time [to start a family] and I am sure that’s true, but I think you have to plan it like anything else,” she said.
So now the big question is: Is she doing baby planning instead? No doubt the fashion maven will be gifted with tons of free designer duds (see Nori West’s wardrobe as an example), and whether a boy or girl the baby will be gorgeous (like mom and dad). Only time will tell if the baby will have a catchy nickname like mama, but my vote is yes!
