Natalie Portman Gives Birth To A Son

15 June 2011
It's a boy for actress Natalie Portman! The Oscar winner and her choreographer fiancé Benjamin Millepied welcomed their first child on Tuesday (June 14), according to People magazine.

It's been quite a whirlwind for Portman, who made her biggest splash yet in Hollywood last year with her award-winning turn in "Black Swan," delighting the media with each awards-show appearance and ever-growing baby bump.

The 30-year-old is known for being tight-lipped about her private life. As such, the most she expressed publicly about her pregnancy and engagement were short sentences of joy. "I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience," she told Entertainment Weekly back in December.

When MTV News caught up with Portman as she promoted her romantic comedy "No Strings Attached," the actress revealed that she was overwhelmed by the support she'd received from her friends, family and total strangers.

"It's very positive interactions, I have to say," Portman said of her well-wishers. "The weird thing is ... people knowing something that is so private but, I mean, you get used to that. It's just wild to walk down the street and have a complete stranger be like, 'Congratulations!' It's so nice, but it's a new experience to have people know that much about your most private things. [But] it's all good."

Portman and Millepied met while filming "Black Swan," for which Millepied was the choreographer and played the role of Portman's dancing partner. They have not made public when or where they plan to exchange vows.
