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”).

I’m a workaholic by nature, but I set aside my writing while he and I stayed up until dawn in fits of side-splitting giggles, thumbing through photo albums, playing music and talking—about everything. Politics, religion, sex—nothing was off limits. He even told me about his ex-girlfriend. She was eight years his senior and ready for marriage and a family. At 25, he wasn’t.
