Natalie Portman Welcomes New Baby Daughter
Natalie Portman has given birth to her second child with husband Benjamin Millepied, and it's a girl! According to E!, Portman's new daughter is named Amalia Millepied.
In fact, Portman and Millepied, a French dancer and choreographer who met Portman on the set of Black Swan, welcomed Amalia into the world over a week ago, on February 22. Their first child, a son named Aleph, is 5.
Portman appeared at the 2017 Golden Globes in January sporting a massive baby bump (and looked stunning in yellow Prada). But she was unable to attend the 2017 Oscars because of her "pregnancy" — or, apparently, because she had a newborn on her hands.
"Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards. I feel so lucky to be honored among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends," Portman said in a statement. The 2011 Best Actress Oscar winner was nominated in the category again this year for Jackie; Emma Stone won for La La Land.
Portman and Milliepied will most likely raise their two kids in Los Angeles, where Portman told Jimmy Kimmel she was happy to move back to after two years of living in France.
