Scarlett Johansson Welcomes Daughter Dorothy-Rose Romain Dauriac Bernard-Briquet-Orban/Abaca

It’s a girl!

Scarlett Johansson and fiancé Romain Dauriac have welcomed their first child, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Daughter Rose Dorothy was born in New York City. The baby’s middle name is an homage to Johansson’s grandmother, whom she called “the first Francophone in my family” while accepting her honorary César in Paris last February.

“Mother and daughter are doing well,” publicist Marcel Pariseau tells the Associated Press in a statement.

Further information is not being released at this time.

The actress has had plenty to celebrate in her personal life lately, including an engagement that came six months before PEOPLE confirmed in March that the couple were expecting a baby.

“I’m very happy. Being engaged is an exciting time to enjoy and really savor,” Johansson, 29, has said of Dauriac, a French journalist.

While never addressing the pregnancy, the mom-to-be let her baby belly do the talking, debuting her bump days after the news broke and, more recently, while stepping out for ice cream with Dauriac in mid-August.

Oh, yay! I was wondering whether she had already given birth or not. I love the name Rose. Congratulations to Scarlett and Romain!

mommy on

Adorable, considering Scarlett and Rose, are both the color red.

Bhavana on

Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl.

Guest on

Congrats! What a beautiful name. LOVE Rose Dorothy . A very special person in my life was named Dorothy. It goes by quickly. Enjoy! Read ‘teach your own’ by John holt. They should pass it out at the hosp with the free baby carriers. I wish I had known about it when mine were first born!

Callie on

What a lovely name. What a nice change from the stupid names celebrities name their children. A beautiful name for a beautiful baby.

Lisa on

Wow. A name you give to a human being and not to a fruit, a color an animal.

Margo on

Love that both Rose and Scarlet can be thought of as shades of red.
Congrats to the whole family!

Sarah S. on

My daughter’s middle name is Rose and it’s her 14th birthday today! So welcome to the world, Rose Dorothy Dauriac!! 🙂

Amanda on

I love the name Rose! Congratulations!

Guest on

Rose Dorothy? Hmmm Is the next one going to Sophia Blanche?

sara on

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for choosing a name that is classic, pretty and spelled correctly. I didn’t think that people did that anymore.

KW on

Oh thank GOODNESS for a NORMAL name! Bless her!

Jacq on

What about Blanche and Ma?

Taylor on

I love Rose as a first name!

Jamey on

Normal name for the kid, but don’t see these two surviving as a couple let alone ever getting married. If they do, it will be short.

LM on

Congrats! I love Scarlet and I’ll bet that baby is a total sweetie. Nice and simple name.

This is one Hollywood baby I’m excited about!

Grace on

Beautiful name – congrats to the happy couple!

Andrea on

Aww! What a beautiful name! I can’t wait to see photos of this cutie!

Edie on

Congratulations. Love the Name Rose..thats my middle name..::)))

Valarie on

Love the name. Congrats!

Guest on

Aw very cute name. I love that it’s fairly simple, yet with a wink to mom with the color red. Congrats to them both!

J on

I couldn’t help but think of the Golden Girls. Rose Nylund and Dorothy Zbornak.

soph on

“Wow. A name you give to a human being and not to a fruit, a color an animal.”

Wow indeed. A name you GIVE to a color? Silly me, thinking colors pretty much have their own names by now.

Ainsley on

To the person that commented that the name “Rose” isn’t a name you give to a fruit, color or animal. I beg to differ…. it’s in the same category … it’s a color and a flower. Yes Rose seems normal compared to Bronx, Blue or North but it’s still reflective of a non human object. I think Blue Ivy Carter is much a better sounding name than Rose Dorothy Dauriac.

JosieJ on

I like the name Rose, but Dorothy does not go with it.

Anonymous on

Ainsley- Right on! Violet is also a color and flower name, yet nobody seems to get worked up about parents naming their daughters that, either. I don’t get it!

Anonymous on

Oh, and congrats to the happy couple!

Janet on

Congratulations. That’s a lovely name for a little girl and it will sound well when she’s grown up.

Mary on

Congrats, its nice to hear a normal name for a change.

lola on

A Golden Girl!! : )

Pam on

Love her, she is a great actress. So happy for them.

Theresa on

Seriously, it’s a known fact that Scarlett Johansson has herpes (HSV2), the “gift that just keeps giving” poor kid. At least the kid wasn’t given a funky name like most celebrity kids such as Apple, Moon Unit, or Pilot Inspecktor.

Tiffany on

haha to the people who did the Golden Girls correlation, funny.
I think it is a pretty name though. Better than Pilot Inspector, North West, Blue, Apple, Hashtag, etc.

Ali on

I LOVE the name they chose. Just Beautiful!

Magnolia on

Very beautiful, classic name. Congratulations!

Violetta on

Some of you women are total witches. Not your circus, not your monkeys. Find something to do with your lives. For those of you wondering what I’m doing-Research. Researching how people sit behind their computers and blab out things they wouldn’t say in person. What drives the mind of these people? Thanks for the help.

charlotte on

Congratulations! Love the name.

Leah on

I cant wait to see what baby Rose looks like! I wonder if they chose the name rose a) because its a cute and simple name, or b) after her mommy whose name is Scarlett (and Scarlett and Rose are both red colours)…..

Lala on

Is she a Golden Girls fan? Because that’s the first thing that came to mind, when reading the name.

soph on

Sure, Violetta. Sure.

Bee on

My immediate thought was “Thank you for being a friend…” I personally love the Golden Girls and the association will never fade for me!

Gail on

Lovely name, so happy for them!
