    What a surprise! I wish these two all the best.

  • Gabby

    Wow. Congratulations to them both! I think it was smart of them to release the news on their own terms to avoid press speculation. Good job!

  • difi

    So unexpected!))) I’m happy for them))Congratulations to happy couple=)

  • Andie

  • sexxxy

  • reyes

    Congratulations Natalie! Wish the best for you two!

  • xx

    Smart and talented actress. Very rare these days. Congrats to her!

  • Isaure

    @Carey: You are wrong about the due date..if she was due in late summer/september she would not have made an announcement so early in the pregnancy!!I guess she’s probably 3 or 4 months along so the baby will be born in may/june 2011

  • the truth

    Congrats to natalie . Wish was haydn instead are the guy se is witha better couple. and i know that you all wll say that that she didn’t want hayden anyway. I know that rachel bison is gald are that . so she sthink people will like her now. I still don’t like rachel bilson at all.Rachel bilson still still sucks as an actress and a person. congrats anyway. The guy that is with natalie only wants atention from this.

  • gaeljet

    Benjamin Millepied is not good looking at all, especially compared to portmann, they don’t match at all(physically)

  • Letisha

    I agree with #58. I think she is probably due in May. Maybe even April. I put her at four or five months along. That’s why it was announced.

    I love Natalie but I don’t have a very high opinion of some of the guys she dates. Sometimes guys just want to be associated with her. She is a major film star and one of the world’s most beautiful women. She is Harvard educated and speaks five languages and is a huge activist and a celebrity.

    I don’t think this Ben guy is ready for the total package. No one would know who Ben is outside of the ballet world, if it weren’t for his dating Natalie. He definitely is more “important” now than he was 18 months ago.

    Yes he has his own career, but he’s also very ambitious. My guess is he will be competing with her and it will get ugly. He’s very self-centered, from what I read. He takes advantage of his opportunities. I just hope he is a good person. I’m not convinced he is. Not yet. I hope I’m wrong.

    I’m very happy for Natalie about the baby, though.

    @ Truth

    Bilson is a nothing actress with 0 talent the only reason she is ever in the news is b/c of Christensen who isn’t too smart to have that woman around him who pimps him out when he is supposed to be such a private man..yeahhh nottt. And why do ppl keep bring up Bilson on Natalie’s threads Bilson should never be in the same topic or sentence with Natalie..

    @58
    The idea was she is announcing this on her own terms not some leak that can be disputed I’m saying about summer which is June/or July she might be early pregnant as well my first guess is end of June or july which would make her pregnant in Sept/Oct which is about right. Until Nat and Ben make it known when their baby is due and what it might be it’s anyone’s guess.

  • http://T.com Kaz simply smashing !!!!!!!

    Really

  • Some Bunny

    Many blessings to Natalie. She is a great actress!

  • france

    Natalie is the actress the most endowed with her generation. She undoubtedly has to see nothing more with Scarlett Johansson whom I also liked but now, her movies are uninteresting ! Congratulations to the family by hoping that Scarlett will become better.

  • Aaron

    I’m very sorry to hear about this. She had a great body and this is going to ruin it.

  • nina

    love her!!!! Gongrats to both!

  • anna

    wow! that was completely out of the blue! congrats to the happy couple!

  • wow

    She gets pregnant by a guy who cheated on his girlfriend with her?
    And here I thought that she was smarter than that.
    Why marry a guy who has PROVEN that he is a cheater?
    Once a dog, always a dog.
    He’s going to cheat on her, too.
    She’s just asking for heartbreak.

  • lurker

    @Great!: You should not call anyone monkey. That is an insult to us classy monkies.

  • never gonna last

    Hes a cheater always will be and natalie is an emotional mess forget it 1 maybe 2 years doubt it!

  • tal

    THA’S GREAT

  • lawl
  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    I’m kinda surprised at the lack of “homewrecker”, “man-stealer” and “karma” comments…Anyway, I guess her biological clock was ticking.

  • Alias

    She’s never been a natural beauty, without her makeup she looks ick & ugh!!!

  • Siena

    Well, some people get an automatic pass. Natalie didn’t mind getting involved with an engaged guy. Now, she’s going to have a shotgun wedding. She’s classy, yeah right, anybody ever see Closer and the trailer for the new movie where she’s showing her butt again. I’ll never forget that she said that she didn’t want to play Jewish characters, even though she’s Jewish.

  • too bad

    Guess she can kiss that Oscar goodbye. Shotgun wedding? Hoping it lasts long enough for the kid to be out of diapers and walking.

  • Michelle

    Congrats to Natalie and her engagement & new baby! I’m happy for them both.

  • Maria

    @Letisha: he does look like a self-centered @-ss, all ballet impressarios are. I’m kind of weary about this coupling. But all the best for Natalie and her pregnancy.

  • Lexi

    @the truth: oh shut the eff up. I knew some idiots on here would be crying a river because hayden and natalie will never happen, just a little news flash… YOU HAVE NOO PROOF THEY EVER DATED. Natalie is pregnant and with this guy, Hayden has been with Rachel for over 4 years.. time to move on don’t ya think??? They obviously had no romantic chemistry, get over it and go get your own relationship.

  • Amanda

    This is a woman of substance; deserving of fame in every way. I love Natalie Portman. So happy for them.

  • Vanessa

    It always amazes me how singers get criticized for showing too much, but actresses like Natalie and Angelina Jolie are always naked and doing a bunch of sexual stuff in movies. Cate Blanchett doesn’t have to sink to that level.

  • irene olson

    Is there not anyone in Hollywood that can get married and then have a baby? I truly respect the people that do it the proper way; first comes marriage and then the baby carriage.

  • Gennell

    Nat is so ugly without makeup. And I mean FUG, and Benjamin has a nine head. He is losing his hair and he is SHORT. Ew.
    And he was ENGAGED when he started obsessing and cheating with Nat.
    Nice guy! This won’t last!
    Bastard child and shotgun wedding.
    You can kiss that Oscar goodbye Nat

  • doors

    he is 33?? he will be HIDEOUS at 40.

  • Kate

    I love how ppl assume they know so much about Ben and his past relationship. Gee he was living with a woman that ended like that isn’t heard of in today’s society. Ben was never married he just lived with is ex so big deal if he ended it and who is to say this woman was some gem either she could have been a controling bimbo for all anyone knows. Thing is Ben and Nat have been dating for well over 2 years now and they only went public last year about it. She has known Ben for longer b/c Black Swan took a long time to make and from what I saw it was well worth the wait. It never fails those who HATE Natalie will come and proclaim they know so much about her or her fiance. As for the Bilson comment please she is a know body she copies from other celebrities and tries to emulate them when she has no clue what she is doing. Her relationship with Christensen is a Ryan and Scarlet they are never together and when they are they are some stage show romance. I wouldn’t even call what they have as a relationship they don’t live in the same country. Every time you see him with her he looks like he just had proctology exam. So when ppl complain about Natalie it’s more jealousy then it is anything.

    So happy! We love you Natalie! :*

  • Lexi

    @Kate: i think when pple complain about ANY celeb it’s more jealous than anything, speak for yourself honey.

  • Adams Family Christmas Card!

    Not all male ballerinas are gay. LOL

  • Kate

    Again ppl don’t know these celebrities it’s great they can assume and NO i’m not speaking for everyone but those who complain about Natalie know they do not want to find anything good about her so they troll around the internet slamming the woman for what being talented, Beautiful and now becoming a wife and mom. I’m happy for her and I see Natalie and Ben having beautiful kids.

  • justsayin’

    seriously wish congrats & to a healthy & happy baby!
    p.s. & if its a girl nat can always rely on a a willing & available baby sitter in roman polanski.. especially when nat’s daughter is @ 13 years old. maybe nat will rethink “artist” vs. protecting a child.

  • clmabake

    eeew this guy is really very weird looking and natalie is no beauty at all def not a natural beauty without her makeup ugh gross saw her in LA and she has a body like a boy always did ugly kid for sure and this wont last i give it maybe a year or maybe even before the kid is born this guy is a cheat and shes an impossible person to be around

  • chris23

    People magazine headline: “Engaged and Pregnant” All is good because that doesn’t make her sound like a drunken prom queen who got knocked up in the back seat of her boyfriends car. Disappointing. I thought she was smarter than this.

  • Kate

    It sounded like they might have been engaged for awhile now Natalie said her private live has always been private she doesn’t reveal much at all so even though this is a major shock for us it sounded like they both planned this out. Someone I know said the baby is due in May.

  • Janet

    Everybody knows Natalie is an undercover heaux in Hollywood. She’s got involved with other married men and men with significant others. That does sound like a stupid prom queen to get pregnant before getting married and all before the awards seasons on top of everything. I agree she is average without all the makeup. If I’m not mistaken, didn’t she get a nose job.
