So yeah, Scarlett Johansson has been dating that French bro Romain Dauriac for a few months now, and since Lord knows women can’t date men without wanting them to put a ring on their finger with the quickness, it was only a matter of time before the engagement rumours started. The New York Daily News published the above photo and then zoomed in on it approximately 500x in order to spot some “engagement bling” on Scarlett’s pretty little hand:
Wow, that’s… conclusive. So, she’s wearing a ring on her wedding finger and she’s in a relationship. When’s the ceremony? I haven’t even bought my dress yet! Pfft. Even I have an “engagement ring” I wear out on the subway to keep weirdos from talking to me and just because I got it on Etsy and it’s pretty and I like it. That doesn’t mean you should cue up ‘Here Comes the Bride’ anytime soon.
Let’s not forget that Scarlett herself said a couple of months back that she never thinks about marriage (especially after her first with Ryan Reynolds ended) and she doesn’t really think tying the knot is all that important. Agreed! Someone can be your life partner without $15k going down the drain and a piece of paper deeming it so.
Because this is the world we live in, Scarlett’s rep had to speak out and debunk this bullshit, saying simply: “Scarlett is absolutely not engaged.”
Well, that clears that up.

And they wrote their own wedding vows for one another, too! Isn’t that just the most? From People:
“They promised to support and love each other and to make each other laugh,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. The groom “said he would treasure Blake; she said she would adore him. The whole time they were beaming.”
The rustic, romantic festivities – held at Boone Hall Plantation outside Charleston, S.C. – featured whimsical touches, including after-dinner s’mores and a paper-lantern send-off.
The emotional highlight of the evening, however, was when Florence + the Machine singer Florence Welch, a close Lively pal, performed “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
The Marchesa-clad bride’s eyes “started to well up,” says the source. “A lot of people started to well up, actually.”
Oh man. I’m starting to well up just reading this. Florence Welch, performing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ at the wedding of two of the most seemingly-in-love celebrities this year? My goodness. Plus, s’mores. S’mores make me well up every single time, because they’re so damn good. And I’ll bet that these s’mores weren’t your standard, run-of-the-mill Hershey’s chocolate-filled. No, I’m willing to bet these were gourmet s’mores, and thinking of that just makes my mouth well up. With saliva.
Congratulations again, guys! Now I want pictures!

A source confirms to PEOPLE that the couple tied the knot Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston.
The reception took place in a white tent at the plantation on Sunday evening. Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), a good friend of the Gossip Girl star, performed three songs live, and there was also a deejay who spun tunes. PEOPLE also confirmed that a cake was being driven down from Virginia for the event.
Lively’s mother and sister were also spotted in town, and a source told PEOPLE that the two had dinner in Charleston with Bette Midler earlier in the weekend.
Reps for the two actors had no comment.
Ok, so this really isn’t all that exciting – I think Blake Lively is pretty boring except for those nude photos that she won’t ever take again, and I don’t understand the appeal of Ryan Reynolds – but this is a little surprising, right? I mean, there’s the beautiful city of Charleston, and dinner with Bette Midler, and then a performance by Florence and the Machine? I wasn’t really thinking about this couple’s wedding, and I definitely wasn’t thinking that it would be so nice.
But hey, what do you think Scarlett Johansson is doing right now?

The couple, who were first linked late last year, “bought a beautiful country home” in Bedford, N.Y., a source tells PEOPLE.
And it’s not too shabby. “The house cost more than $2 million,” the source said of the property.
So it’s serious, then, huh? These two are settling down, walking dogs together, taking self pictures, and now they’re purchasing real estate together. I guess it’s a good thing. Now they can stop the constant displays of public affection (not that I personally mind; I think it’s rather cute), but for the sake of sad, sad Scarlett Johansson, it’s probably better that they have four walls to hide behind and call a home so they can do what they feel is necessary to further their blossoming love. Until Sean Penn realizes the error of his ways and invites girlfriend back into his home, his life, and by virtue, his pants, then she’s going to be treading in some pretty sensitive waters. Poor girl.
Wonder how long it’s going to be ’til we hear about an engagement ring.

I don’t want to be gross, but I actually threw up in my mouth just after I typed that headline. Like, I finished typing out “cute couple” and the next thing I knew, I had vomit inside of my mouth. Whether it’s from the thought of those lovebird assholes, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, or from the amount of discounted Christmas candy I’ve had today, we may never know.
But ok, for real, these crazy kids are kind of adorable, and I don’t get it. When they’re apart, they’re a couple of my least favorite celebrities: I’ve always thought, despite popular opinion, that Ryan has one of the biggest douchefaces known to man, and I don’t think I actually need to list any reasons for disliking Blake. But when their powers unite … I don’t hate it.
Especially if it involves cupcakes:
It was a crisp 35 degrees in Vancouver on December 20. So naturally, Blake Lively was all bundled up while picking out a birthday cake with her new boyfriend, Ryan Reynolds, for his dad at Original Cupcakes. But the Gossip Girl star really warmed up when the Canada native selected a few special treats just for her.
“The salesperson told them Jay-Z had come in a few days earlier and bought an eggnog cupcake for Beyonce,” a source tells Us, “So Ryan ordered six of them for Blake!”
That kind of simple romantic gesture is one way the actor, 35, has won over Blake after two months of dating. And sources say Lively, 24, is just as giving.
“She’s making an equal, is not greater, effort to make Ryan happy,” says one insider of the couple. Indeed, a caring girlfriend who whips up homemade dinners and prefers home-movie nights to premieres seems to be an ideal antidote for Reynolds after his rocky marriage to Scarlett Johansson.
“Scarlett treated Ryan badly, so he loves the comfort that Blake provides,” says the source. “It’s like, ‘You were on the cover of Vogue and you want to cook me dinner? Yes, please!’”
While in Vancouver, a Reynolds family dinner was on the itinerary, and a trip to the Granville Island Public Market, where Lively bonded with Reynolds’ mom, Tammy. “Blake and Ryan held hands and Tammy had her hand on Blake’s back as they walked around,” says an eyewitness. “They laughed all the way to the car – and Blake let Tammy have the front seat!”
The duo is making the most of their holiday time together – “They love to sit at home and cuddle,” adds the insider. “Those two are over-the-moon in love.”
See what I mean? Despite the ridiculous “Blake let Tammy have the front seat,” that sounds like an adorable little story, doesn’t it? Ryan buys Blake cupcakes and then they go home and cuddle. Beautiful. Plus, that little catty comment about how Scarlett Johansson treating Ryan badly is just icing on the cake. I love it.
What do you guys think? Are Blake and Ryan a cute little couple, or are they sickening with their gooey, sappy love?
