Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are making it official! Johansson, 23, and Reynolds, 31, who have been dating since Spring 2007, are engaged, their rep confirms to Reynolds was engaged to singer Alanis Morissette. They split in February 2007 after four years together. Johansson was previously dating to Josh Hartnett. In February, it was reported that the actress was seen shopping for wedding dresses at a Monique Lhuillier boutique in L.A. with her mother and sister. But her rep told Us, "A family member is getting married, not her. She is not engaged."

To be honest, I had no idea that the couple were dating as far back as last Spring. I knew that Ryan and Alanis broke-up in February of 2007 but I didn't know that he was hooking up with Scarlett so soon after they broke up ... maybe that's why they broke up? At any rate, I suppose congrats are in order for the happy couple ... to be honest, I never really saw these two together as a couple ... I hope things work out better for them than they did for Alanis and Ryan. [Source]
