They say that three is the magic number – and that’s certainly the case for celebrity parents actress Natalie Portman and choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied, who are riding an emotional high after the addition to their family of first son, Aleph.
They are already in such deep baby love with the one-year-old it seems that the couple have decided to wait to expand their family.
Millepied has commented that having another child straight away had crossed their minds. “We thought about going back-to-back but then decided to wait.” As reported by Showbiz Spy.
Portman, who named her son after the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, has been taking things much slower work-wise since her son’s arrival.
“Natalie is being super choosy about her projects and taking more time off from acting,” a source has revealed. “She has this glow about her these days… She and Benjamin are so content.”
The working mum paid tribute to her husband during her Oscar acceptance speech for The Black Swan. Talking of Benjamin, whom she met on set of the movie, she said; “My beautiful love, Benjamin Millepied, who has now given me the most important role of my life.”
