I’m going to cut right to the chase and say that yes, Natalie Portman is indeed already married to Benjamin Millepied, that dude that knocked her up and asked her to marry him a while back. But why am I jumping to such bold conclusions? Because they’re both wearing wedding rings. I really don’t know what other proof I need to give.
From Us Weekly:
Natalie Portman made a resplendent return to the Academy Awards on Sunday one year after she triumphed with her Best Actress win for her searing performance in Black Swan.
Back in February 2011, the star, now 30, was pregnant and engaged to her Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millepied.
The handsome Frenchman, 34, was once again Portman’s date at the 2012 bash as she presented the Best Actor award to The Artist‘s Jean Dujardin, and the happy parents to son Aleph, 7 months, were more affectionate than ever. (Portman wore a vintage red chiffon silk Christian Dior Couture gown with velvet polka-dot detail.) What was new this year, besides Portman’s slim-again post-baby bod? Both Portman and Millepied — famously private about their relationship and son — were wearing unexplained new rings on their wedding fingers.
Compared with pics from the 2011 Oscars, Portman’s dazzling engagement ring appeared to be flanked by an additional band. Millepied, meanwhile, wore a simple silver band on his wedding finger. Portman’s rep did not reply to request for comment from Us Weekly.
Here’s that comparison picture they mentioned:
And Benjamin’s ring:
These two seem like such a private couple – we’ve only seen Natalie out and about a handful of times since she had her baby – so this really wouldn’t be hard at all to believe. Oh, and did we cover that part where they’re both wearing wedding rings? Because they’re both wearing wedding rings. I think that just about says it all, don’t you?
I think it’s sweet that Natalie kept her wedding completely quiet, but I’ll say this: I’m really incredibly sad that I’m most likely never going to see Natalie Portman in her wedding dress. Come on, you know she had to be unbelievably stunning. Weddings!
