Congratulations are in order for "Avengers" actress Scarlett Johansson. The woman behind the Black Widow has a little superhero of her own on the way with French journalist fiancé Romain Dauriac, "The Insider With Yahoo" has confirmed.
 
It'll be the first child for the actress, 29, who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds.
 
Johansson and Dauriac, 31, have been romantically linked since late 2012. She debuted her Art Deco engagement ring in Sept. 2013 at the Venice Film Festival.

Not much is known about Dauriac, who maintains a fairly low profile. ABC News reported that he's the former editor of a French urban art magazine called Clark. One report from Paris news website Pure People says that the couple was introduced by a mutual friend, a tattoo artist who inked Johansson. Although Dauriac has a Twitter account, he hasn't tweeted in almost three years.
 
"He's a journalist, he's kind of in creative advertising," she told Vanity Fair's Krista Smith at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. "So he's just sort of out of the spotlight."

What we do know is that Johansson has a busy professional schedule over the next few months. Having recently starred as the sexy voice of Samantha in last fall's Oscar-nominated film, "Her," and alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt in "Don Jon," she has the indie thriller "Under the Skin" and blockbuster "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" both coming out on April 4.
 
She's also scheduled to shoot "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" this year, while making her directorial debut with a big screen adaption of Truman Capote's "Summer Crossing," which is set to shoot in NYC this summer.
