Natalie Portman’s “Black Swan” character may have lost her mind, but the actress can thank the film for gaining her a fiance and a baby. The actress’ reps confirmed to People that Portman and her boyfriend, Benjamin Millepied, are engaged and expecting their first child. The two met on the set of the film — which is garnering Oscar buzz — in which Millepied was both a choreographer and had a bit part (as the Prince to Portman’s Swan Queen in “Swan Lake”). Millepied had a girlfriend (another ballet dancer) at the time, but working with Portman so closely — she trained for five hours a day for a year — led to the two falling in love. Well, 2011 is certainly looking to be an exciting year for the actress. Mazel tov! [People]
