E! News exclusively revealed that Scarlett Johansson is expecting her first child with fiancé Romain Dauriac, and while we're ecstatic for the actress and her soon-to-be hubby, we couldn't help but wonder what this means for her future projects.

The pregnant star, who E! News has learned is due in August, is currently gearing up for her promotional tour for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and once that's done, Scarlett is scheduled to begin shooting Avengers 2.

And, well, it'll be pretty hard to hide a growing baby bump under that tight, black catsuit. So what's going to happen?

A source tells E! News that shooting for the superhero sequel will need a bit of rearranging. "They're going to fast-track her scenes," the insider tells us.

Johansson is scheduled to begin shooting Avengers 2 overseas on April 5, after her promotional tour for Captain America is complete. The studio wouldn't comment about her having to reschedule filming.

The pregnancy news comes just six months after it was announced that the Oscar-nominated actress is planning to tie the knot with her French journalist beau. E! News confirmed the couple was engaged in September after ScarJo flashed her vintage Art Deco ring on that finger at the Venice Film Festival, with her rep adding that the lovebirds are "very happy."

The expectant couple went public with their relationship in November 2012, not long after Johansson ended a roughly year-long romance with Nate Naylor.
