The Kid-Dish: Natalie Portman Gives Birth!

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

It’s the Jewish celebrity parenting news of the century! Natalie Portman and fiancé Benjamin Millepied have welcomed a baby boy. Word’s still out on whether this day will become an official holiday in the Kveller office. Word’s also still out on what they named him, or what he looks like, or if there will be a bris sometime next week, but we can be patient, can’t we?

We took a stab at naming him back in February, coming up with the ever graceful Pierre Shlomo. Does anyone else have some last minute guesses?

So, a big mazel tov to Natalie and Benjamin, and to their future child, who is surely one brilliant, talented, good-looking babe.
