Natalie Portman has revealed her excitement over the big news that she is engaged and pregnant.

“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,” the Black Swan actress told Entertainment Weekly in a statement Monday.

Portman, 29, revealed exclusively to PEOPLE earlier on Monday that she and choreographer Benjamin Millepied are engaged and expecting their first child in 2011.
