Natalie Portman Baby Born, Welcomes Second Child With Benjamin Millepied
The Oscar winner’s rep says in a statement, “Natalie Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied welcomed a baby girl, Amalia Millepied, on Feb. 22. Mother and baby are happy and healthy.” The joyous development led the actress to skip the February 26 Academy Awards, where she was again nominated. Portman released a statement the day before, saying she would be unable to attend, but did not reveal she had given birth.
As Gossip Cop reported, it was revealed Portman was pregnant with her second baby in September. Rumors of Portman’s pregnancy first began when she displayed a growing baby bump on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival, where she attended the premiere of her new film, Planetarium.
Portman and her husband first met on the set of her 2010 film Black Swan, which Millepied worked on as a choreographer, and they married in 2012. For the past few years, the actress and French dancer were living in Paris with their son, 5-year-old Aleph, but recently relocated to Los Angeles. Gossip Cop wishes the couple many years of health and happiness with their growing family!
