NEW YORK (AP) — A lawyer for Scarlett Johansson's husband Romain Dauriac says he's "shocked" that the star filed for divorce.

Johansson's filing in a New York City court on Tuesday states that her marriage to Dauriac is "irretrievably broken." The move follows a January announcement that the couple split last summer after less than two years of marriage.

Johansson asks for joint custody of the couple's toddler daughter in the filing, but also wants the child to live with her. Dauriac's lawyer, Hal Mayerson, says he's taken aback by the request because he has been the "primary parent" for Rose while Johansson has been involved with her career.

Johansson's representatives and attorneys didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

Johansson was previously wed to actor Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011.
