LOS ANGELES - Actress Scarlett Johansson has given birth to a girl, her first child with her journalist fiance, the actress' representative confirmed on Thursday.

Johansson, 29, and French journalist Romain Dauriac welcomed daughter Rose, the first child for both of them. The couple have been engaged since September 2013.

The Hollywood star was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds. They divorced in 2011.

Johansson, who is a spokeswoman for the Israeli-based soft-drink company SodaStream, remained staunch in her support for the firm earlier in the year amid a bout of controversy that arose over her connection to company that runs a factory in the West Bank.
