It has been reported that Natalie Portman’s baby with fiancé Benjamin Millepied is a boy. Life & Style magazine reports that a close friend of the couple has revealed that Portman and Millepied have confided in a "very small group of family members and friends that they're expecting a son."

The insider added that "they are so excited. Benjamin cannot wait to be a father." Portman, who is due to give birth in early spring, and her future husband met while filming the highly acclaimed 'Black Swan' which has gained the actress an Oscar nomination.

Benjamin was the choreographer on the film that saw Natalie transform herself into a troubled ballet dancer. The couple announced their engagement and Portman's pregnancy in December and the actress later joked about their relationship while accepting the Best Actress Golden Globe.

"Thank you to Benjamin who is helping me continue this creation of creating more life. Benjamin choreographed the film and also you might remember him in the movie as the guy when they ask 'would you sleep with that girl?' he’s like 'no.' He’s the best actor, it’s not true, he totally wants to sleep with me."

She is currently starring in 'No Strings Attached' alongside Ashton Kutcher.
