Johansson ‘putting off wedding’

Scarlett Johansson is said to be in no rush to walk down the aisle.

The 29-year-old actress is engaged to Frenchman Romain Dauriac, and the couple are currently expecting their first child.

Despite reports the pair were rushing down the aisle before Scarlett’s due date, a source now tells E! News the actress has decided to put the nuptials on hold for now.

"She is telling friends that she is not getting married until after the baby," the insider said.

Scarlett’s pregnancy was reported by E! back in March, just six months after the star became engaged to Romain.

A spokesperson for the Oscar-nominated beauty said at the time the couple were “very happy”, but declined to offer further details about their plans to say “I do”.

"They haven't chosen a date for the wedding,” the rep said at the time.

The most recent report follows on the heels of claims Scarlett was in fact overheard discussing her intent to marry Romain within a matter of weeks.

According to New York Post, the star was at a dinner thrown by American businesswoman Martha Stewart at her East Hampton estate last week, when she told fellow guests the pair would exchange vows within the next month.

Scarlett is known to keep her personal life more private than most celebrities, however.

While her spokesperson has yet to publicly comment on the latest claims, Scarlett told CNN in 2011 she felt “wronged” by invasive media reports about her personal life.

“Just because you’re in the spotlight, or just because you’re an actor or making films or whatever, doesn’t mean that you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy. I think no matter what the context, if that is besieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong,” she said.
