Those close to Natalie Portman may want to start checking their mail boxes, as the actress will soon be sending out wedding invitations as well as birth announcements. Portman's rep recently confirmed to People magazine that the brunette beauty is engaged to choreographer Benjamin Millepied, and the two are expecting a child.
Portman and Millepied met earlier this year while filming Black Swan – Millepied choreographed many scenes in the film and even appeared on screen as her dancing partner.
Portman then spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the joyful news that caught many people by surprise.
"I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience," she told the news source.
It seems that 2011 will be a lucky year for Portman. In addition to her impending nuptials and baby, the actress received a Golden Globe nomination for her Black Swan performance and many critics expect her to get an Academy Award nom as well.
