Actress Scarlett Johansson is expecting her first child with fiancé Romain Dauriac, according to a new report.

“The Avengers” star, 29, became engaged to the French journalist in September and now editors at Eonline.com claim she is preparing to become a mom.

If the reports are true, this will be the first child for the actress.

Johansson, who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds, recently admitted she would love to have kids, saying, “I would like to have my own family, that would be nice. They say it’s never the right time and I am sure that’s true, but I think you have to plan it like anything else.

“At some point it is something I look forward to. I am fortunate in that I have had a long career – 20 years – that has been very diverse. So, you know, picking a time to plan a family feels like something that I could do and not feel as though I was missing out.”

Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds.
