Double the love! Natalie Portman is ecstatic about her growing brood.
“Of course she is happy,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly of the star’s second pregnancy. “She loves her family and her life and is happy to add to it. Everyone is thrilled.”
Us Weekly confirmed the happy baby news on Thursday, September 8, when Portman, 35, stepped out at the premiere of her new film, Planetarium, at Italy's Venice Film Festival with a tiny bump visible through her white one-shoulder Dior dress.
The Oscar winner was positively radiant as she walked the red carpet, and an onlooker told Us that the Black Swan actress even rubbed her belly at the star-studded event.
Portman and husband Benjamin Millepied are already parents of son Aleph, 5, who they have carefully kept out of the spotlight. The Star Wars actress even recently told Jimmy Kimmel that she plans to keep her own celebrity status low-key around her son.
“He [hasn’t seen them], but he knows about it, of course,” Portman told Kimmel of her Star Wars films on Thursday, August 25. “It’s kind of a shame because, you know, when I made it, I was like, ‘This is going to be the coolest thing! One day when I have kids, I can show them.’ And boys, of course, are obsessed with it and know all about it before they’ve seen it. Then I realized: I die in the movies. I feel like it’s kind of a scary thing to show your kid.”
Portman played Queen Amidala in three of the franchise’s prequels, Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace (1999), Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith (2005).
Portman and Millepied, 39, met on the 2010 set of Black Swan and tied the knot in 2012. They lived in Paris for two years before recently moving back to L.A.
