Star Wars actress Natalie Portman is up for a bonus. She is not only engaged to her boyfriend but the couple is also expecting their first baby. A representative of Portman confirmed the news on December 27, 2010. And who is her man?
He is Benjamin Millepied, a French choreographer. The 29 years old stunner met her fiancé while she was shooting for her latest flick, Black Swan. Portman essays the role of a New York based ballerina in this film. The film traces the journey of this ballerina who is obsessed about perfection at the cost of her body and mind. Born in Bordeaux, France, Benjamin is a choreographer as well as principal dancer at the New York City Ballet. Benjamin is said to have played a major role in helping Portman pick up her ballerina moves.
When asked about the experience of working with Portman, Benjamin answered with a smile that they had got along really well right from the beginning. He also added that Portman is very professional and has no starry tantrums or attitude.
Portman is known for keeping her personal life under wraps. But this time around, she came all out about her relationship with Benjamin. According to reports, the couple started seeing each other in the fall of 2009. New Year’s Eve 2009 saw the first public appearance of Nat and Ben.
We guess Santa Claus has been extra generous with Portman, having gifted her a suave beau last Christmas and a baby this year.
