natalie-benjamin-550rnrnWow! If you thought that the week between Christmas and New Year’s was going to be a slow one in the gossip world, you were sorely mistaken. People just broke the news that Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied are engaged AND expecting their first child. Sounds like someone got a shotgun wedding for Christmas!rnrnThe two were first introduced while on the set of Black Swan, where the ab-tastic Millepied served as the film’s choreographer. He and Portman apparently became very intimate during the filming, for Millepied dumped his ballerina girlfriend of three years, Isabella Boylston, and shacked up with the homewrecker Hollywood A-Lister. The couple has been going steady ever since, and now we have this news to lead us into Awards Season.rnrnOf course, the big question here is this: How will this news affect Portman’s chances at winning Oscar gold? After scoring key nominations from groups like the Critics Choice Movie Awards, she is an early favorite to win the Best Actress award. Will this news make Portman more sympathetic to voters, or will it turn scandalous and ruin her chances? Developing!
