NEW YORK., N.Y. -- It’s a boy for Oscar winner Natalie Portman.
The beautiful actress and her fiancé, dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, whom she met on the “Black Swan” set, have welcomed their long-awaited arrival, People was first to report.
No details were immediately available on when or where the couple’s child was born.
Natalie will no doubt be relieved over her baby’s birth as she revealed to Access Hollywood in April she was experiencing some pregnancy pains.
“My back is not feeling great right now, sitting for so long,” she told Access Hollywood as she promoted her then-current film, “Your Highness,” in New York City. “But everything’s really great otherwise.”
While the baby is here, it’s unlikely Natalie has anything ready to go for her little one. She admitted she stuck to tradition when it came to babies’ births.
“I think it’s a Jewish thing to be kind of superstitious,” she told Access in April. “You don’t do any of the baby stuff before the baby arrives.”
Natalie has not yet revealed the name of her child, but she previously said she had no plans to name it after the famed statue she picked up earlier this year.
“Would it be too crazy to think you might name your baby Oscar?” a reporter asked backstage in the pressroom at Hollywood’s biggest night, the Oscars, back in February.
“I think that’s probably, definitely out of the question, yeah,” Natalie laughed.
