Scarlett Johansson recently told an interviewer that she is too caught up in her exciting career to think about settling down and starting a family, but what she didn't say in said interview is that she wasn't considering moving towards having a family-life some time soon. It looks like this might be the case though, as Scarlett has reportedly taken those first few steps towards becoming a family woman, by supposedly getting engaged to her boyfriend Romain Dauriac.

The Under the Skin beauty and her French journalist other half have apparently been engaged for about a month, according to People, and have been keeping the fact that they've taken the next step in their relationship to themselves throughout the summer. A source who claims to be close to the actress, 28, and Dauriac, 30, has told People that they have been planning their marriage like it is some clandestine operation and revealed "they're engaged and very happy."

The source went on to claim that the proposal took place about one month ago, when Dauriac presented her with a diamond-encrusted art deco-style ring. Scarlett was seen sporting the sparkler on her left hand during her red carpet appearance at the Venice Film Festival earlier this week, prior to the premiere of her polarising new sci-fi film, Under the Skin, as she and her French hubby are apparently getting really serious. Any attempts to hear from Scarlett's representatives or from the actress directly to confirm the engagement have been rebuffed each time.

This will be Scarlett's second marriage, having wedded Ryan Reynolds in 2008, in a union that lasted just over two years. She and Dauriac have been dating since last fall, with the pair going public with their relationship at the November premiere of her film Hitchcock. More information about this story as it develops.
