Goodbye, city life!

Natalie Portman and husband Benjamin Millepied have pulled up stakes and temporarily moved to the Lone Star State.

The L.A.-based actress, 31, is filming director Terrence Malick's untitled new film in Austin, and the whole gang is along for the ride –including their Yorkshire terrier, Whiz.

The clan was spotted strolling through a local park October 3. "Natalie and Benjamin were beaming," a witness told Us Weekly. "They are a total family unit." 

After the park, Portman held son Aleph, 16 months, while her choreographer love, 35, checked out the city's famous bat colony under the Congress Avenue Bridge.

"Benjamin had his camera out, taking photos," added the source. "He's a doting dad while she works," a pal told Us.

But wherever they go, they thrive as a couple, said a Portman confidant. "They love married life!"
