(Newser) – Natalie Portman and fiance Benjamin Millepied have welcomed a son into the world, People reports. Portman, 30, met her choreographer beau on the set of Black Swan, for which she won the best actress Oscar earlier this year. During her acceptance speech, she thanked the Frenchmen, "who has now given me my most important role of my life."

Portman didn't let her pregnancy slow her down during awards season. "It's the most private of experiences, so I'd definitely rather be at home right now. But also, it's my job," she told USA Today early this year. The out-of-wedlock pregnancy drew fire from Mike Huckabee, who accused the happy and successful Portman of setting a bad example for others. Click through for that story.
