Natalie Portman giving up vegan diet for pregnancy

Actress puts aside her vegan values for pregnancy dairy cravings

Natalie Portman has revealed that she has given up her vegan diet while she is pregnant. The actress and her fiancé Benjamin Millepied are expecting their first baby.


Vegans avoid all products that come from animals, including eggs and dairy, instead of just meat as vegetarians do.

“I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy and that sort of stuff. If you’re not eating eggs, then you can’t have cookies or cake from regular bakeries, which can become a problem when that’s all you want to eat,” joked Natalie, 29, obviously making the most of her sweet-tooth pregnancy cravings!


Although the baby is due in the summer, Natalie has explained why she’s still not discovered the sex and why she and Benjamin are intentionally unprepared for their new arrival.
