A Pregnant Natalie Portman Swims Bare Belly in James Blake’s Newest Video

natalie-portman-2

Days before giving birth, Natalie Portman starred in the recently released music video for James Blake’s  song “My Willing Heart,” released on Monday.

In the black and white video which Anna Rose Holmer directed, the Jackie and The Black Swan actress floats in a swimming pool and is later seen in a room caressing her bare baby belly to the melodic but haunting song.


The Oscar- winning actress and her choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied welcomed daughter Amala days after wrapping up shooting of the video. The couple also have a 5-year-old son, Aleph.


The song appears on the British singer/songwriter’s critically acclaimed 2016 album, “The Colour in Anything.” He is famous for experimenting with different styles of music, including electronic and rap.

Natalie may have been one of the first celeb women to appear in a music video so close to delivery but she wasn’t the first to shoot a video while heavily pregnant.

In 2011, Beyonce was pregnant with her daughter Blue Ivy in her Countdown Video. That year, P!nk was also visibly pregnant with her daughter Willow in her girls empowerment song “F*&>Perfect”.

Before then, Canadian -born artist Deborah Cox showed off her 3rd trimester belly in the later frames of her “Beautiful U R” video” which is also about female empowerment and self esteem.  Finally, Whitney Houston, was also uplifting women in her remake of Chaka Khan‘s “I’m Every Woman” and was pregnant with her daughter Bobbi Kristina. (RIP to both of them)

So Natalie Portman had a 4-day old baby the night of the Oscars which was the real reason the actress missed this year’s February 26th Academy Awards.

A rep for the Black Swan actress told PEOPLE magazine that she and her choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied welcomed their second child together, a daughter they named Amalia Millepied on February 22.


On February 25th, her rep released a statement citing pregnancy for the reason Portman would have missed the Oscars and the Independent Spirit Awards which took place the day before the Oscars

“Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards. I feel so lucky to be honored among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends,” she said in the statement released by her rep Keleigh Thomas Morgan.

“Mother and baby are happy and healthy,” the rep told the Magazine this weekend about the state of the family.

Israeli-born Portman and Frenchman Millepied are already parents to 5-year old son Aleph. They were married in 2012 in Big Sur, California.

Congrats to the family!

Before the Academy Award broadcast on Sunday, February 27 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California, second-time mom-to-be Natalie Portman announced that she was too pregnant to attend.

The Jackie biopic star released a statement about her decision to sit out the award show and stay home with husband, choreographer Benjamin Millepied and 5-year old son, Aleph.


“Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards,” Postman said in a statement to E! News on Saturday. “I feel so lucky to be honored among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends.”

The actress is nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress for her leading role in Jackie. She had previously won an Oscar for the 2010 film Black Swan and was nominated before that for her supporting role in the 2004 movie Closer.

Portman was also nominated for Best Female Lead at the Film Independent Spirit Awards for her role in Jackie. The film also got an Oscar nod for Best Feature, Best Director and Best Editing.

Back in 2011, she accepted her Oscar for Best Actress while pregnant with Aleph and thanked Millepied, a choreographer who worked with her on the film, for giving her “the most important role of [her] life.” Her then soon-to-be-born son. Awwww!

Though not there in person, she was seen in an Oscar night version of  host Jimmy Kimmel‘s popular “Mean Tweets” segment.

She read the first one actually: “I feel like if u went to lunch w/Natalie Portman she would only order a hot tea with Lemon and MAYBE some toast, but definitely not an entree tho,” she read before the camera pans out and she turns to show the silhouette of her big belly.”

“You’re wrong,” she whispers looking the camera dead in the eye! Hilarious.

Pregnant women can do it all. Case in point: Natalie Portman. 

The Academy Award-winning actress had the nerve to look this fashionably adorable in a gorgeous flowing  floral Alexander McQueen frock while accepting the award for Best Actress at this week’s Critics’ Choice Awards this week.


She brilliantly rocked Steve Madden heels, a Christian Louboutin clutch, and Cartier jewelry at the event held this past December 11th.

The Israeli-American star also got a  top actress nod for the 2017 Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild!  This path is reminiscent to the last time she was expecting her first child Aleph, a son with her French choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied.

Portman received the equivalent of the est Actress award for her role in Black Swan at the Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild, Golden Globes and Academy Awards in 2011-2012.

The second time mom-to-be is much buzzed to also be nominated for and to take home a Best Actress Oscar win for her role as Jackie Kennedy in the critically -acclaimed biopic Jackie.

The movie follows the late former First Lady during the days after her husband John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas in November 22, 1963.

The 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards was held at Barker Hangar on December 11, 2016 in Santa Monica, California.

Apparently, she breathed life into the roll and was quite compelling.  

Go Natalie, Go! The stars are aligned for another sweep!

Bellytich Best of 2011: The “Most Watched/Stalked” Pregnant Celebrities

Beyonce, Natalie Portman and Victoria Beckham commanded the most media attention

The Top 3 Most Watched Celebrities
No celebrity commanded more media attention than Beyonce, hands down. Her MTV VMA Awards announcement of her pregnancy garnered the most tweets per second than any other event this year, including the killing of Osama Bin Laden and the death of Steve Jobs.  Since then, many news outlets, print, TV, radio and online, that do not ordinarily cover “bump watch” have spent a lot of time talking about various aspects of Bey’s pregnancy. 
Natalie Portman‘s unexpected pregnancy following her stellar Academy Award-Best Actress winning performance in 2009’s The Black Swan kept her and her bump on the screens of many news outlets as they poked around for news about her fiance, choreographer and Swan co-star Benjamin Milliepied. Portman became watched more after a Ballet Dancer Stand-in claimed that she danced the majority of the scenes without ample credit. Portman’s film co-stars and producers had to jump to her defense.  
Folks were also just giddy over news that Victoria Beckham was pregnant with her and super hunk soccer star husband David’s 4th child, a girl. After 3 boys, many were happy to see Beckham get the “mini-me” she always wanted. She delivered Harper Seven in July. 
Together, all three commanded the airwaves, copy space and online hit counters of many news, blogs and other information sources. Fan and public interest equaled more coverage.

Runner-Ups to the Most Watched and Most Stalked included France’s first lady Carla Bruni Sarkozy, a striking former model and third wife to that country’s embattled president Nicolas Sarkozy. Though Bruni said she would limit exposure of her child to the media, after baby Giulia was born this November, the couple were seen in open areas.  Some say they used the baby to get some sympathy for Sarkozy who faces a challenge to his presidency. 
Selma Blair, Pink, and Kate Hudson were much watched throughout their pregnancy 
After denying being pregnant for months, P!nk revealed that she and hubby motorcross athlete Carey Hart were indeed pregnant, to the delight of many considering the couple had previously split and reconciled before finding themselves “with child.”  
Papps found themselves following actress Kate Hudson and her Muse frontman boyfriend Matthew Bellamy  around. He proposed to Hudson mid pregnancy.
