Natalie Portman names son ‘Aleph’
Natalie Portman has been keeping a low profile ever since she gave birth to a baby boy. The Oscar-winning actress has also kept mum about the name of her newborn son. However, People.com has uncovered the name of the baby: Aleph. Looks like he’ll have one less letter to learn from the alphabet. Well, at least the Hebrew one.

According to People.com, a source confirmed to the publication that Portman named her son Aleph, which is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet. Aleph also represents the number 1 in Hebrew.

Aleph is the first son of Jerusalem-born Portman and her fiance, Benjamin Millepied. The duo met on the set of Black Swan; Portman starred in the film and Millepied choreographed the award-winning flick.

Black Swan won Portman her first Academy Award (she was previously nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in 2004’s Closer). The 30-year-old actress won a number of other accolades for portraying a troubled ballerina in Darren Aronofsky’s movie, including a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BAFTA Award and a Golden Globe.

Portman starred in a couple high-profile movies this year, including the romantic comedy No Strings Attached, Your Highness (which she co-starred alongside James Franco) and the superhero box office hit Thor.
