She’s got the pregnancy glow and the beautiful baby bump to match! A massive congratulations is in order for Natalie Portman and husband Benjamin Millepied who are expecting their second child.
The couple, who are already parents to five-year-old Aleph, confirmed the news after Natalie’s baby bump was on display in a gorgeous white frock at the Venice Film Festival yesterday. Natalie, who was at the premiere of her film, Planetarium, was seen rubbing her belly and smiling for the crowds as she made her way up the red carpet.
Motherhood certainly suits the stunning 35-year-old Oscar winner who met her husband on set of Black Swan back in 2010. They married in 2012.
Natalie and Benjamin have always been low key and tend to keep their private life out of the spotlight as much as possible. However, she has never been shy about admitting how much she loves being a mum and how motherhood has helped her identify with her career.

“[Being a mum] 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,” Natalie told New York Times magazine T back in July.
