Well, not in the literal sense. Barack Obama is quite content with his wife, Michelle, and their two young daughters.
But Scarlett Johansson, asked after her recent USO Tour of the Persian Gulf if she is engaged to Ryan Reynolds, responded in this fashion:
"I am engaged ... to Barack Obama. My heart belongs to Barack, and that is who I am currently, finally, engaged to. Yes."
Johansson has been a vocal proponent of the Illinois senator's campaign for the White House. No word on whether Reynolds is jealous of Barack Obama.
Her adoration for Obama aside, rumors were flying today that Scarlett and Ryan Reynolds, who have been going out for awhile now, are in fact engaged.
They are not engaged.
The New York Post reported early this morning that Scarlett Johansson, 23, was seen shopping for wedding dresses at a Monique Lhuillier boutique in L.A. with her mother and sister recently, triggering big-time celebrity rumors.
But her rep spoke with Us Weekly this afternoon that "a family member is getting married, not her. She is not engaged."
Ryan Reynolds is, presumably, still hittin' that though.
