Actress Natalie Portman, who is expecting her first child, announced she will marry the baby’s father.

The Israeli-American actress, 29, is expecting the baby with her fiancée, New York Ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, 33, according to an announcement her publicist made earlier this week. The couple met last year while filming “The Black Swan,” a ballet drama released earlier this month in the United States and for which Portman received a Best Actress Oscar nomination.

Millepied is not Jewish, according to Hollywood insiders. Portman was born Natalie Hershlag in Jerusalem; her father is Israeli and her mother American. She lived in the United States from the age of 3.

Portman told the Israeli news site Ynet in an interview in 2006, “A priority for me is definitely that I’d like to raise my kids Jewish, but the ultimate thing is to have someone who is a good person and a partner.”
