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!
