Scarlett Johansson was spotted wearing a glimmering diamond ring on the red carpet at the 70th Venice Film Festival for her movie Under the Skin earlier this week, sparking speculation that the actress was engaged to longtime boyfriend journalist Romain Dauriac. On Thursday, their engagement was confirmed.

Engagement rumors first swirled around the couple back in February, but at the time, both Johansson and Dauriac’s publicists refuted them. This time, however, Johansson’s publicist was happy to confirm the nuptial news, but stopped short of giving a date for the wedding.

"They haven't chosen a date for the wedding," the publicist claimed in her statement to the press.

The romantic proposal took place about a month ago, reported People. The sparkler that Johansson has been sporting on her left ring finger is a vintage Art Deco style. Back in July, the 28-year-old actress claimed that a gold ring with ruby and diamond jewels was only a piece of jewelry.

Johansson and Dauriac have reportedly been dating since 2012. The Lost in Translation actress was previously married to The Proposal actor Ryan Reynolds. They amicably divorced in 2011, and he remarried with Blake Lively in 2012. Dauriac, who currently manages a creative advertising agency, has no known previous marriages. He was previously an editor at the art magazine Clark.
