Natalie Portman and husband Benjamin Millepied welcome their second child, a baby girl whom they named Amalia.
According to Fox News, Portman and Millepied welcomed their new baby, Amalia, on February 22. This is the second child for the celebrity couple and their first daughter.
Portman and Millepied’s son, Aleph, was born in June 2011.
The couple started dating in 2009 after they met on the set of Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan where Portman played the lead role of a ballerina haunted by her ambition to be the best ballet dancer in the industry. Millepied worked in the film as the choreographer.
Portman took home the Oscar for Black Swan that year, winning in the Best Actress category.
It cemented her status in Hollywood as one of the elite actresses in the film industry and she became even more visible in the mainstream media after appearing in the 2011 Marvel movie Thor and the 2013 sequel Thor: The Dark World, which were both commercially successful.
Relocating to Paris
So it may have come as a surprise that Portman moved to Paris with her husband Millepied after the latter became the director of dance of the Paris Opera Ballet in 2013.
The couple relocated to France and Portman even stated that she would like to become a French citizen in due time.
