Talk about a precious mother-son moment. 

Natalie Portman was spotted giving her 2-year-old son, Aleph, a piggyback ride in Paris, and we can't help but notice how much the little guy's grown!

The Black Swan beauty was sporting a simple mom-on-the-go style as she strolled through the City of Light with her son—whose papa is Portman's hubby Benjamin Millepied—wearing jeans, oxford shoes and a quilted navy coat to keep warm in the fall weather.

Her little man, who appears to have grown a great deal since we last saw him in mid-August, flashed a sweet smile while perched atop his famous mama's shoulders as his cute blond hair was swept back by the wind.

The Israeli-born actress recently told Marie Claire magazine that she will be moving to Paris "at the end of next year" because her French choreographer hubby has been named director of the Paris Opera Ballet.

"When Ben asked me if I wanted to go to Paris, I freaked," the 32-year-old stunner told the mag. "Everyone dreams of living in Paris."

Still, the actress admitted that she will miss L.A.:

"I just really, really love it here [Los Angeles]," said the Oscar-winning star, who was raised primarily on the East Coast. "It's one of the most exciting places to be in the world right now. It's really central in terms of the arts. It feels like things are happening in L.A., you know? New York is more where art is bought than where art is made."

Portman will next be seen alongside Chris Hemsworth in Thor: The Dark World, a sequel to the 2011 superhero blockbuster, which hits theaters Nov. 8.

And she's also reportedly set to direct her first feature film in Jersualem. The movie, which is based on Israeli writer Amos Oz's memoir, A Tale of Love and Darkness, is tentatively scheduled to begin filming in January 2014.
