Scarlett Johansson ‘Surprised’ By New Baby, Not Surprised Enough To Not Set Unrealistic Expectations Her Daughter Will Never Live Up To

Scarlett Johansson and her French husband not-Ryan Reynolds produced a young infant with an old-lady name this past fall, and though they are so in love with their daughter Benjamin Button Rose Dorothy, maybe someone should belatedly get Scarlett a copy of What To Expect When You’re Expecting (I’d personally opt for the movie, not the book)?

As she told W, regarding birth:

“When she came out of me, I was so surprised. I had a very strong picture in my mind of what my baby would look like. And, of course, she is completely different. Perfect, but not what I’d imagined.”

The worst expectations to live up to really are the hypothetical ones your mother has for you in her head. Aren’t children life’s greatest gift? [W]
