Major congrats are in order!
Oscar-winner Natalie Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied are expecting their second child together! The couple, who relocated to Paris, have maintained a relatively low profile and are quite private about their family life.
On Thursday, September 8th, Portman confirmed the news by debuting her growing baby bump at the premiere of her film Planetarium at the Venice Film Festival. She wore a beautiful one-shoulder dress that draped down effortlessly.
In July, the Black Swan actress discussed how motherhood has changed her irrevocably. “I think being a mother made me realize how maternal the role of director is,” Portman said in an interview with The New York Times magazine T. “It made me much calmer under stress because there’s that weird parent thing you develop, that when things get really bad, your voice gets calm and your blood pressure slows and you can make everything OK again. And things get bad and stressful easily on films.”
Portman and Millepied also have a five-year-old son, Aleph. Best of the luck to the couple!
