Natalie Portman must be dancing on air.

The Oscar winner and dancer fiancé Benajmin Millepied welcomed a son today, their first child together, People reports.

The dashing duo met on the set of Black Swan and dropped a major news bomb in December by announcing both their engagement and Portman's pregnancy.

Toting her award-season bump everywhere she went, Portman scooped up honor after honor—including the Academy Award—for playing an ingenue on the edge of sanity in Black Swan, and she credited the experience for bringing her and Millepied together.

"Thank you to Benjamin, who is helping me to continue this creation of creating more life," she said at the Golden Globes. "Benjamin choreographed the film and you also might remember him in the movie as the guy who, when they asked, 'Would you sleep with that girl?' he's like, "Pssh, no.' He's the best actor! It's not true, he totally wants to sleep with me!"

And so he did.

But while the scrutiny has really only just begun—what's your son's name, Nat?!—Portman assured People recently that she's prepared to just be a mom for a while.

"I'll be out of the public eye afterward," said the No Strings Attached star, who added that she'll choose her next project "as it comes."
