On Sunday night, Natalie Portman hit the stage of the 84th Academy Awards to present the Best Actor Oscar. Just one year ago, she was pregnant and accepting the Oscar for Best Actress for her role in Black Swan, accompanied that night by her partner and baby's father, Benjamin Millepied. Behind Natalie And Ben's Black Swan Romance
The couple, parents to 7-month old son, Aleph, made no effort to explain or hide their rings. Could it be they got married and somehow kept it from hitting the press?
Looks that way to us! Nat's gorgeous sparkling engagement ring is now resting above a skinny band, while Benjamin is wearing a simple silver band on his left hand ring finger. Who Is Benjamin Millepied, Natalie Portman's Fiancé?
We're impressed if it's true they really did get hitched! For once, a celebrity couple has managed the near-impossible—a quiet, private wedding that not a single media outlet had private knowledge about. No helicopters flying overhead, no dodging paparazzi on the way into the ceremony. In other words, a normal wedding!
Of course, their reps have yet to confirm or deny the rumors, but we're pretty confident their new rings hint at matrimony. If not, then perhaps they're rocking their new bands as a way to declare their commitment to one another.
Together since they met on the set of Black Swan in 2010, this pair has been going strong—and staying out of the limelight—for two years now. Natalie Portman & Benjamin Millepied Welcome A Baby Boy
Congrats to the happy couple, regardless of their marital status!
According to Us Weekly, who contacted the couple's jeweler in Hollywood, Jamie Wolf, they definitely had a secret wedding!
"I designed the rings worn by Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman," Wolf tells the magazine. "They were made with recycled platinum and conflict free diamonds."
Huge congratulations are in order for the sneaky and happily married Mr. and Mrs. Millepied!
