Why Natalie Portman Bet $1,000 Against Ellen DeGeneres (Hint: It’s Baby-Related!)

We can’t get enough of Natalie Portman lately. Between her role in “Jackie” and her pregnancy with baby #2, there’s just too much good stuff going on with the Jewish actress. Recently, Portman opened up about her pregnancy when she stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” 

During the conversation, Portman, who is already a mom to son Aleph, mentioned that she doesn’t actually know the gender of her second baby yet. Since Ellen wrongly guessed the sex of her first child nearly five years ago, Portman made a bet: She bet burritos and $1,000 that her second child wouldn’t be a girl. Clever, right?

If the baby does turn out to be a girl, however, Ellen wants the baby to be name after her. That’s an even more clever (and tricky!) suggestion than Portman’s. I definitely am eager to know what unfolds in the next few months.
