Natalie Portman names son ‘Aleph’
Aleph is the Oscar-winning actress’ first son.
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.
