Baby-to-be's first awards show!

Pregnant Natalie Portman kept her hand on her growing baby bump at Wednesday's People's Choice Awards in L.A.

For her first awards show appearance since announcing her pregnancy and engagement to dancer/choreographer Benjamin Millilpied, Portman, 29, wore a loose-fitting, frilled short blue Jason Wu shift dress and mesh Dior pumps. See more pictures of Natalie at the People's Choice Awards.

The fashionable Black Swan star (who's the new face of Christian Dior fragrances) took the stage with Ashton Kutcher, her costar in the upcoming comedy No Strings Attached.

Before announcing her pregnancy, Portman told Vogue that she was nothing like her self-destructive, anorexic Black Swan character, Nina.

"I swear, I eat. I ate a bagel an hour ago," said the thin star, who keeps a vegan diet. "I consume my own weight in hummus every day. I cook a lot, and I even do vegan baking."

Her last experience with weight gain? The freshman 15 while attending Harvard University, she told the mag. "I gained my freshman fifteen or 20 and had superdepressed moments…That Cambridge winter is tough."
