Second-time mom-to-be Natalie Portman bares her bump inside the Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue in a breathtaking portrait captured by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Portman is nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award for her performance in the Jackie Kennedy biopic Jackie. She and her choreographer and dancer husband Benjamin Millepied are expecting a sibling for their 5-year old son Aleph.

And she was joined on the cover wearing a flowing off-the-shoulder gown by other A-Listers Emma Stone, Greta Gerwig, Amy Adams, Aja Naomi King, Ruth Negga, Lupita Nyong’o, Janelle Monae, Dakota Johnson and sisters Elle and Dakota Fanning.

Second-time mom-to-be Natalie Portman looked gorge in a bright and sunny Prada gown with white embellishments at the cuff and hemline while on the Red Carpet at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. She paired the regal dress with Jimmy Choo shoes, a a Tomansino bag, and jewels by Tiffany & Co.

The Israeli-American actress was favorited to walk away with the Best Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in the biopic Jackie. She didn’t win but she still has the Oscars to look forward to.

The Black Swan actress was joined by her husband, and the choreographer of that movie, Benjamin Millepied. The couple are parents to 5-year old son Aleph Portman-Millepied.

Natalie Portman is Usually Pregnant During her Road to Oscar


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.
