Natalie Portman Marries Benjamin Millepied
The Oscar winner weds choreographer Benjamin Millepied in front of family and friends in Big Sur, Calif.
Here comes the bride!
Natalie Portman said “I do” on Saturday night to her fiancé of two years, French dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, on the scenic central California coast of Big Sur, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
Surrounded by family (even 14-month-old son Aleph!) and friends, including Ivanka Trump and Macaulay Culkin, the pair exchanged vows after dark in a Jewish ceremony at a private home facing the ocean.
The Oscar winner, 31, first met Millepied, 35, on the set of Black Swan in the fall of 2009. He worked as a choreographer on the film and the two started to date during the shoot. By December 2010, the couple announced they were engaged and expecting their first child.
“Nothing is more important than my personal life,” Portman recently told France’s Madame Figaro magazine. “It’s something which comes first, always makes sense, and compared to the happiness of a successful family life, everything else is practically superficial.”
Now that Portman has made her love official, the newlywed may consider becoming a French citizen like her husband.
“I now have the possibility of taking on French nationality. It would accomplish the Francophile dreams of my father and myself,” she told the magazine. “I lived in Paris when I was 12 and my father gave me the name Natalie as an homage to Gilbert Bécaud’s song. Everything in my life has drawn me towards a French family.”
