It’s a Boy! for Natalie Portman
The Oscar winning actress and her fiancé Benjamin Millepied are now the proud parents of a baby boy. Born Wed. morning, that’s pretty much all we know for sure. The famously private actress is keeping tight-lipped about the baby’s name and place of birth, and has not released photos of the newborn.
Portman and baby daddy Millepied met on the set of Black Swan, where Millepied served as the film’s choreographer. Portman received the highest praise of her career for her portrayal of the troubled ballerina Nina Sayers and went on to win that golden eight-and-half-pound Oscar.
But all we really care about is the question: To snip or not to snip? Amidst all the recent controversy surrounding circumcision, we’re dying to know if the Israeli-born Portman will wait to name her baby at the bris, as is customary in jewish tradition, or is the couple on the side of the “intactavists” who consider circumcision a form of genital mutilation.
Either way Mazel Tov Natalie and Benjamin!
