Scarlett Johansson on her bond with baby Rose: 'It's magical'

Scarlett Johansson has spoken about the special bond she shares with her newborn daughter Rose Dorothy. The actress gave birth to her first child in September and the following month she married her French love Romain Dauriac.

Blissfully living on cloud nine, the Lucy star has opened up about her new role of motherhood.

"It's wonderful. It's very, very magical – and exhausting," Scarlett, 30, told People.

"The love is just unbelievable. It's very overwhelming," she added of her connection with her baby.

While the blonde beauty has previously admitted that she is still learning the ropes, Scarlett has thrown herself into her new role and seems more than happy to be on diaper duty and to do the late-night feeds.

"[I do] the whole bit," she said. "I'm nursing and I love it."

Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac married in secret in October

She and her new husband Romain tied the knot back in October, but details of their wedding only emerged two months later.

The notoriously private couple, who first started dating in November 2012, said "I do" in a ranch in Montana – away from the spotlight of Hollywood, Scarlett's hometown of New York and Romain's native Paris.

The lovebirds enjoyed a few days relaxing with their baby daughter at the ranch, soaking up the breathtaking views and fresh air.

According to eyewitnesses, Scarlett and Romain "were really laid back and friendly" and almost always had little Rose with them.

"They were holding hands and hugging and smiling and flirting with each other," a source told E! News. "You could tell they were really happy."

Scarlett Johansson admitted that breastfeeding helped her get back into shape

Scarlett and Romain most recently stepped out to attend the IFP's 24th Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York – just hours after their wedding news had emerged.

The new mum, who has credited breastfeeding to her amazing post-baby figure, dazzled in a thigh-skimming black sequined mini dress.

As she stopped to pose for photos on the red carpet, Scarlett flashed her new diamond wedding band that sat alongside her exquisite Art Deco engagement ring.
