Mazal tov and double congratulations are in order for Natalie Portman: the beloved Israeli-American actress who recently starred in "Black Swan" is now pregnant with her first child and also engaged to Benjamin Millepied; Benjamin is an exceptional ballet dancer of international reputation and also a ballet choreographer who has worked with Natalie on "Black Swan". This will be Portman's first child.

 

Her representative has confirmed the announcement today (Monday), but did not give any additional information. While it is not clear how far along Natalie Portman is or for when the wedding planned, one thing is certain: the two have met on the set of the movie, which 29-year-old Portman starred in, as aforementioned. Turns out that the movie which Portman has already defined as a key point of her career, has also become a key point in the young actress' life.

 

Moreover, while usually tight-lipped and "stingy" in details about her personal life, Portman decided to give up and tell about the intensive preparation for the film. Over the course of a year, Portman trained up to 8 hours a day with ballet, swimming and more and the already petite actress had lost some 10 kilogram. "I think it was just the physicality of it all that was the most extreme," she said. Her hard work paid off as Portman received Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations for her role, as well as Oscar "Buzz" for her great ballerina role.
