Natalie Portman - Natalie Portman And Benjamin Millepied Welcome Son

Natalie Portman and her choreographer fiance Benjamin Millepied have welcomed a baby-son. Oscar winning actress Portman is reported to have given birth on Tuesday (14th June 2011) but no further details have been released, according to People Magazine.
It's been a whirlwind few years for the 30-year-old actress, who met Millepied while filming Darren Aronofsky's acclaimed psychological drama 'Black Swan'. The couple announced their engagement and pregnancy in December 2010, and Portman picked up the Oscar for 'Best Actress' at the Academy Awards in February 2011. Millepied, a dancer at New York City Ballet and a choreographer of international recognition, defended his fiance amid speculation she used a body-double for the majority of her routines in 'Black Swan'. Benjamin brushed aside suggestions the actress did little of her own dancing, telling the Los Angeles Times, "There are articles now talking about her dance double that are making it sound like (her body double) did a lot of the work, but really, she just did the footwork, and the fouettes, and one diagonal in the studio. Honestly, 85% of that movie is Natalie".
Natalie Portman stars in recently-released indie-drama 'Hesher', with Joseph Gordon-levitt and Rainn Wilson. She also features in Kenneth Branagh's action adventure 'Thor', which received mainly positive reviews upon its release in April 2011.
