Yet another Hollywood couple who welcomed a baby recently! Natalie Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied have welcomed a daughter. The Oscar-winning actress, 35, gave birth to a girl named Amalia on February 22, her representative told People.com.
The statement read: “Natalie Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied welcomed a baby girl, Amalia Millepied, on February 22. Mother and baby are happy and healthy.” Portman and French choreographer Millepied, 39, are already parents to son Aleph. They were married in 2012.
The star made her baby bump debut in September at the Venice Film Festival while promoting her movies Planetarium and Jackie. Although she attended the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards while expecting, Portman skipped the Oscars ceremony on Sunday due to her delivery.
Though Portman and Millepied, who met on the set of Black Swan, are quite private about their family life, the actress opened up in a summer 2016 piece for The New York Times’ T Magazine about how parenthood has changed her.
“Parenthood 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 okay again,” the actress wrote. She also said,” I hate saying it, cause ugh, we hated it so much when people said it to us. They always said it, and now we say it, and it’s awful, and we’re old. But it’s also true.”
