Natalie Portman proudly held her Oscar after winning for Best Actress at the Academy Awards on Sunday (February 27).
The actress rocked her baby bump in a flowing Rodarte gown.
During her teary acceptance speech, Portman called her fiancé Benjamin Millepied “my beautiful love.”
She added, “[He] has now given me my most important role of my life.”
In the press room backstage, she spoke more about her pregnancy. Portman said she doesn’t know the baby’s gender and that the baby kicked during the song portions of the ceremony.
When asked what she’d tell her child-to-be about her Oscar experience, her reply was down to earth.
