  • Butter_Fly

    Wow. So unexpected, which I like! Congrats on the news! Good to see celebs not milking every relationship/baby like the countless famewhore’s we’re bombarded with on a daily basis.

  • AJ

    So happy for her! But I hope she’s marrying for the right reasons, for love. And not because she’s pregnant. Either way, that’s great! And no she’s not ruining her career (I’ve read some nasty comments about this). So happy for her. Congrats Natalie! Keen to watch your new movie! I hope she wins her Oscar next year, and imagine how beautiful she’ll look at the Oscars!!!

  • One troll on this thread

  • sexy

    congrats :)
    why is everyone shocked? it’s normal

  • nata

    This is was so unexpected! OMG! Good for Nat, I adore her as an actress and I love the fact that she has such a clean career and image. She is not a fame whore. Congrats Nat!

  • Anastasia

    Congratulations to them both!Really happy news,they must be thrilled.It’s always nice to hear that kind of news instead of all the break ups and the divorces that are happening in celebville the last weeks..

  • Congrats

    Well I’m more shocked she is engaged TBH,as there has been rumors of the pregnancy since the Black Swan premiere, from interviews I always got the impression that she wanted kids, but didn’t want to marry, think Ben is the one that wants to marry maybe to give the child his name, don’t mean it bad against either of them, just IMO

  • Delphic

    @edskee: …because, you see, Natalie Portman probably isn’t that shallow. She dated Devandra Banhart, after all.

  • Delphic

    @Delphic: Devendra*

  • laverdadduele

    I’m disappointed. Getting knocked up…I thought she was smarter than that. What happened to the concept of courtship, marriage, and children?

  • Lexi

    Yeah, congrats to them. But I see her as completely uptight and picky, don’t see it lasting.

  • Carey

    WOW congrats NAT guess the baby will be due around late summer or September. I so hope they have a nice wedding I know it will be small and informal that is what I expect from her. I’m so sure the press will be all over her now that she is engaged and pregnant looking to see her baby bumb. I saw the photo shoot of Ben and trust me is his HOT looking when he is dressed up very tall and very hard bodied. They will have beautiful looking kids.

  • Maria

    Oh WOW congrats to Natalie! Love her! I want her to win best actress at the Oscars!

  • Letisha

    I hope he is better than I heard. He was “engaged” to his live-in girlfriend when he started to cheat on her with Natalie. The poor girl was totally blindsided when she found out about it…from other people. They said he was obssessed with Natalie while they were working on Black Swan. He’s supposed to be a real diva and a social climber with a very high opinion of himself. He didn’t sound like a very nice guy, more like an a$$. Not surprised he knocked her up. Now she’ll never be rid of him. I predict 3-6 years. Unless he starts cheating and abusing earlier.

  • Alana

    Wow, congrats to Natalie and Benjamin. Hope they have a healthy baby and hope she takes the Oscar home next year. She certainly deserves it!

  • Kate

    @ Lexi

    I think this will last she knew what she wanted in a man and Ben is very sable man, Plus I have trust in that she loves him it shows it’s not like the showmance couples that are around all the time on the internet,parading themselves all over daily, weekly or even monthly just to get attention for their going know where careers. So they take up with some celebrity in hopes they will get famous or more famous. At least Ben has a career that is successful he doesn’t need to ride on Nat’s coat tails and vice versa. If she is uptight looking mainly b/c she is on set and you can’t relax when press in your face and people crowding you all the time asking a billion questions. From the time I saw her she was very accommodating, polite and very friendly, gave autographs to as many as she could. Natalie was not rude or unkind so when I hear that she is mean or stuck up guess it’s on how you interpret her to be if you like her or not. I find those who never liked her will always find wrong in who she is. I’m excited for Natalie and Ben and hope they will be happy and have a beautiful healthy baby.

  • Sara

    I saw some comments in Imdb and Youtube saying she is fat…. SEE! She is pregnant morons! And she wasnt THAT fat.

    She will be the most beautiful pregnant in the world!!
    And I want her to win best actress at the Oscar. I love her !!!!

    sorry my english

  • Jones

    I like how her past boyfriends haven’t been those typical types that tend to be “recycled” among women in Hollywood – like the John Mayers or Owen Wilsons (your typical serial daters). Her love interests have fallen outside the Hollywood mainstream which has allowed her to avoid that cliche. I think she and Benjamin make a gorgeous young couple and their children will be adorable. Congrats to Natalie and Benjamin!
