Academy-Award winning actress Natalie Portman put her bump on full display this weekend during the DC premiere of her latest film Jackie. The Black Swan star went with a figure-hugging grey pencil-length jersey dress with ruching on the side.

Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied are expecting their second child. The couple are parents to 5-year-old son Aleph.

Baby is due in Spring and naturally because Portman has “popped” a lot of people think she is a lot further along that she actually is.

“Everyone thinks I’m about to pop and about to give birth at any minute and I have months to go.” While Natalie looks to be far along in her pregnancy, People reports she told Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday.

Portman correctly attributed it to the fact that she is so tiny and thus looks “more pregnant” than she really is.

“I’m a small person in general. You show a lot faster and a lot more when you’re small.” Last month, she looked radiant in a white Spring 2017 Christian Dior gown at a screening at American Film Institute’s Festival. She paired the gown with a white blazer and open-toe sandal as she promoted her biopic.

This Korean Ballerina’s Maternity Portraits are Breathtaking

I usually reserve my International Bumpwatch posts for Saturdays but I couldn’t help but early share this majestic maternity photography of an expecting National Korean Ballerina, Hyo Seon Park.

Artistic and editorial photographer BAKi captured Park en pointe and looking breathtaking as she balances on her toes whilst adjusting for the added weight in her belly!

It is reminiscent of the photo shared widely of Lumina Belle, taken when the trainer of Natalie Portman for The Black Swan was heavily pregnant but still dancing ballet.

There are also photos of Park with her spouse too in some nice pics.

Natalie Portman is Expecting 2nd Child

Natalie Portman is expecting a second child with husband Benjamin Millepied.

An unnamed source confirmed the news to Us Weekly on Thursday.

Portman, 35, was comfortable showing her new baby bump Thursday during the premiere of her film Planetarium at the Venice Film Festival. Us Weekly reported that the Jewish Oscar winner for Black Swan rubbed her stomach on the red carpet.

Portman and Millepied, 39, who coached her in ballet on the set of Black Swan have a 5-year-old son, Aleph. The family, who lived in Paris for two years while Millepied headed the Paris Opera Ballet, recently moved to Los Angeles.

The Israeli-born actress’ other highly anticipated film, “Jackie,” in which she portrays Jackie Kennedy, premiered at the festival on Wednesday and garnered positive reviews.

Mary Helen Bowers caught many people’s attention with the beautiful photos of herself she shared on her Instagram account of her in graceful ballet poses while 9 months pregnant. 

Bowers, who owns Ballet Beautiful ballet instructions company, got permission from her doctor to dance up until the week before she was scheduled to deliver. 
“I just love knowing that when I’m dancing, the baby is dancing,” Bowers, 33, told TODAY Moms. “It’s just been awesome to know there’s this little life that’s sharing in everything you do every day.”

The Columbia University English literature grad danced for 10 years with the New York City Ballet at Lincoln Center after getting a full scholarship at age 15 to study at the School of American Ballet in Manhattan.  Bowers was invited to join New York City Ballet a year later at age 16.
“I feel like that’s really helped me with my balance and helped prevent back pain and a lot of other aches and pains that are really common with pregnancy,” she said of being able to dance all pregnancy long. “It’s a beautiful time. You feel connected to your body on a level like never before.”
