According to People magazine, Natalie Portman, that little girl we really loved back when she was in that hit-man movie with Jean Reno, who we also love, and then that little girl who was all wise and glorious in the oddly wonderful despite being a little pedophiley when you think about it now Beautiful Girls, and, of course, the not-so-little-anymore girl in the Golden Globe-nominated Aronofsky masterwork Black Swan (in theaters now!), is both engaged and preggers.
The affianced of the young lady (she’s 29 now, can you believe it!?) is choreographer Benjamin Millepied, who she met during the production of that very ballet movie we just mentioned. Does this mean a shift in the wind for celebrities in 2011? Less divorce and sad sack separation, more love and baby-making? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, Natalie, you’ve made at least one former Runnin’ Scared blogger we know and adore very sad, and for that we may never forgive you.
