Natalie Portman has been keeping plenty busy these days. With lots of awards-season buzz circling her eponymous role in Jackie, being a mother to 5-½ year-old son Aleph and another baby on the way, how do she and her husband, Benjamin Millepied, make the time to do it all?

“We are two careers and we find ways to organize ourselves and be happy,” Millepied told reporters before he hosted L.A. Dance Project’s annual gala at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday night. “There is nothing to complain about,” he continued. Millepied, 39, co-founded the artist collective and is excited about continuing this venture. “It’s just beginning, but it seems clear that we are drawing the young audience that I know lives here and is interested in arts and culture.”

While the couple posed together for photos on the red carpet, Millepied was quick to point out that attending the event is not like the couple’s typical date nights. “It’s sort of a date night with hundreds of people,” he quipped.

Their son, Aleph will soon be a big brother, but it’s unclear whether the tyke has any desire to follow in the footsteps of his Oscar-winning mom or his dancer-choreographer father. “He’s very young, so who knows,” Millepied explained.

While Portman, 35, and Millepied’s most recent collaboration is a new sibling for their Aleph, Millepied — who worked with Portman on the 2010 film that would win her an Oscar, Black Swan — is less sure about a creative collaboration with his wife in the future.

“Not in the near future, but maybe one day,’ he says.
