Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac Split After Two Years of Marriage

The duo secretly wed in 2014 shortly after welcoming their first child, daughter Rose Dorothy

Scarlett Johansson and her French husband, Romain Dauriac, have called it quits, PEOPLE has learned.

“They’ve been separated since the summer,” a source confirms to PEOPLE, adding that it was Johansson who initiated the split.

The 32-year-old actress attended the women’s march in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, where she was seen without her wedding ring.

A source in Dauriac’s circle tells PEOPLE: “I’ve been expecting this for some time. Romain and Scarlett has never made sense to me. They aren’t equals. There’s always been something wrong with this picture.”

Johansson was first spotted with Dauriac during a lunch date in New York City in October 2012. By the following September, she was sporting a vintage Art Deco style sparkler that indicated the couple’s engagement.
