Natalie Portman has kept a low-profile since giving birth to a baby boy in early June. Though she and fiance Benjamin Millepied have yet to officially announce their son's name, reports from Israel claim the Oscar winner has named her firstborn Alef, after the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet. The name also represents the "oneness of God" and the element of air.

As first reported by the Israel Hayom newsletter, the name was revealed on the Israeli TV show Good Evening With Guy Pines.

Though Portman, 30, has yet to confirm the report, Alef would certainly be a fitting choice for the Black Swan star: born in Jerusalem (with the given name Natalie Hershlag), the actress has dual American-Israeli citizenship.
