Natalie Portman has first child

Oscar-winning actress gives birth to boy

Natalie Portman, star of Black Swan, Leon and the Star Wars prequels, has given birth to her first child.

Earlier this year the actress enjoyed success at the Academy Awards with the ballet film Black Swan, picking up her first Oscar for Best Actress.

It was on the set of Black Swan that Portman met the father of her child, Benjamin Millepied.

Millepied was the choreographer on the dance film and cameoed in one scene where he was asked if he held any desire to sleep with her character. He said no.

The couple are now engaged.


Portman, who made her big screen debut in 1994 with Leon, went to Harvard University and graduated in 2003 with a BA in Psychology. Portman turned 30 last week.

The couple have yet to publicly announce the baby’s name or birth date.
