Black Swan has been good to Natalie Portman. The actress announced that she is pregnant and engaged to choreographer Benjamin Millepied.

Portman, who has received critical acclaim and awards buzz, including a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of an obsessive ballet dancer in the Darren Aronofsky thriller, met Millepied on the set of Black Swan, where he was a choreographer and also had a small on-screen role. Millepied is a principal with the New York City Ballet.

The Israeli-born actress released a statement regarding the news Monday afternoon. "I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience," she said to Entertainment Weekly.

The couple reportedly began dating late last year. This is the first child for both. —ISHITA SINGH
