While Natalie Portman, who’s pregnant with her 2nd child, may LOOK like she’s about to pop, the ‘Jackie’ star recently revealed that she’s actually still a long ways away from giving birth! In fact, she has ‘months’ to go! Watch Natalie finally open up about her pregnancy here and find out approximately when she’s due!
Natalie Portman, 35, is not actually as far along in her pregnancy as you may think. Appearing on NBC’s The Tonight Show on Nov. 29, the actress revealed to host Jimmy Fallon, 42, that because she’s small, everyone thinks she’s going to have the baby any day now, but in reality she has quite some time go. In fact, on Nov. 30, Natalie told TODAY‘s Matt Lauer that she’s due to have baby number two in the spring!
“You’re showing and you’re glowing! You look gorgeous. Congratulations. You’re expecting your second baby,” Jimmy said to Natalie as she joined him on his talkshow. Joking about her bump, he aded, “I hate to assume. But I saw you over the summer and you didn’t say a word to me.”
“Well, it was early,” Natalie replied. “I thought everyone would know because I wasn’t drinking.” But while Jimmy did notice she wasn’t drinking, he just assumed she was trying to be healthy! “I just thought you were clean living, you know? I was like, ‘Oh, that’s Natalie, man. She rolls like that,'” Jimmy laughed. “Because you’re a vegan, right? So I was like, ‘Wow, that’s awesome.’ I’m neither a vegan nor not drinking. I was SO not pregnant,” he said. “But this is unbelievable. This is great. Are people treating you differently?”
And as a matter of fact, people ARE treating the brunette beauty a bit differently — especially because they assume she’s super far along. “It’s weird because I’m a small person in general, so you show a lot faster and a lot more when you’re small,” the 5-foot-3 star said.
“Everyone thinks I’m about to pop and about to give birth any minute, and I have MONTHS to go.” Even people at the grocery store are commenting on her appearance. “I went to the store the other day to buy water and the guy at the checkout counter was like, ‘Almost, huh?’ I was like, ‘No! Not at all!'” Natalie laughed.
We definitely can’t wait for Natalie to give birth come spring and we can only imagine how excited she and her husband Benjamin Millepied, 39, must be! After all, they clearly love parenthood as they’re already the proud parents of son Aleph, 5.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — did you think Natalie was ready to pop? Are you surprised by her reveal?
