Scarlett Johansson has altered her view on smoking cigarettes entirely after welcoming daughter Rose last September.

The 30-year-old Avengers: Age of Ultron actress and her husband Romain Dauriac welcomed their daughter Rose in September 2014.

Scarlett has been carrying a smoking habit for years, but her desire for a puff is said to have waned tremendously due to maternal instinct.

“Rose got her to give up smoking,” a source told Us Weekly magazine. “Scarlett says she very, very rarely has a cigarette now and it’s because she doesn’t want her baby to smell it.”

It’s claimed her recent commitment to curtailing the habit has other benefits, as her windpipes are clearing up.

Apparently Scarlett, who released electro pop track Candy with her band The Singles earlier this year, is utilising her healthier lungs to sing jazz songs to baby Rose.

“When Rose is screaming, the nanny gives her to Scarlett. Scarlett is the only one that can calm her down,” the insider noted. “[She] likes to sing Nina Simone and Anita O’Day as well as her own songs, too. Scarlett has a beautiful voice, and Rose will stop crying immediately!”

Although there is much disdain in public discourse over the way smokers smell, it seems Scarlett has always been conscious of her scent.

She previously noted wearing the right perfume is just as important as donning the perfect outfit.

“For me, it completes a look; it’s that first impression you make and the lasting impression you leave with people," she smiled to Vogue Australia.
