Natalie Portman gave birth to daughter Amalia, days before Oscar ceremony

Saturday, 4 March 2017


Actress Natalie Portman had a great reason for missing Sunday’s Oscar ceremony.

She gave birth to her second child,  Amalia on 22 February last week but kept the new arrival quiet in the days leading up to the Academy Awards show.

Portman, who keeps a low public profile, had said through her publicist a week ago that because of her pregnancy, she would not be attending the 26 February Oscar ceremony in Los Angeles, where she was nominated in the lead actress category for her performance in “Jackie.”

“Natalie Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied welcomed a baby girl, Amalia Millepied, on 22 February,” the statement said. “Mother and baby are happy and healthy.”

Portman and French choreographer Millepied have a five-year-old son, Aleph. They were married in California in 2012.

Portman had been an early Oscar favorite for her performance as former US first lady Jacqueline Kennedy in “Jackie” but the best actress Oscar went instead to “La La Land” star Emma Stone.

Millepied, 39, is a dancer and choreographer who worked on the film “Black Swan”, for which Portman won an Oscar for Best Actress. She was heavily pregnant at the time with Aleph.

Millepied is the founder and director of L.A. Dance Project, a contemporary dance company that works with emerging and established artists.
