It's a boy!
People magazine reports that Natalie Portman and her Black Swan choreographer/co-star turned fiancé Benjamin Millepied finally got to meet their long-awaited bundle of joy yesterday, 06/14/11. The star had just recently turned 30 on Thursday, making the arrival of her son to be the best...birthday present...EVER.
The Israeli-born actress (raised in New York) previously confessed to following Jewish superstition and has not prepared ANY baby stuff, believing it to be bad luck to do so if the baby is not born yet. Another scary thought on every gossip aficionado's minds, however, is the supposed 'Best Actress' curse where previous winners of the award experienced a downfall in their relationships (e.g. Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, etc...just to name a few).
Let's just hope that superstition skips over Natalie and her ballet-dancing cutie. Surely, the proud couple's bond is stronger than ever.
It was last December when the news of the engagement and the upcoming bun in the oven went public, just as Natalie's career was skyrocketing to epic proportions. This past year alone, along with picking up countless awards for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, the star has also appeared in many other films, such as Thor, Your Highness and No Strings Attached.
Her fiancé Millepied has been keeping busy as well: not only will he be appearing in an upcoming independent film, he was just recently featured in an Yves Saint Laurent ad.
As for the new baby, details of when and where he was born, as well as his name, are yet to be released. Whatever his name is, we're sure he will grow up to be as beautiful and talented as his parents. Congrats to the new mommy and daddy!
