jordan on

@ Lacey

Think we can ALL say we didn’t see this one coming!

Congrats to the couple!

Katie on

WOW!! Two major announcements I never would of guessed from her! Good for her!!

Crystal on

She is definitely one of my favorite actresses! “Where The Heart” is is by far one of my all time favorite movies!!!! I can’t wait to see her pregnant and to see her little man (I’m predicting BOY)!!!! πŸ™‚

sue on

Congrats to Natalie and Benjamin! Maybe she’ll pull a Rachel Weisz and win an oscar while pregnant too! πŸ˜‰

jessicad on

I agree with you guys, a shocker! Congrats to them! She’s so pretty and a great actress!

alice jane on

Wow, I also did not see this coming! Actually, I had no idea she was seeing anyone.

Many congratulations to her and her fiance! What a year 2011 will be for her!

Ella on

Would’ve loved to see them get engaged and married first! Seems like there are a lot of marriages created due to these types of surprises. Hope it lasts!

Chelsea on

I had no idea she was 29! I love her and wish both her and Benjamin the best! Natalie seems so nice and genuine in interviews, I’m sure she’ll be a great mom!

Katie on

Ella: WWhat an ignorant thing to say!! Just because a baby comes before everything else doesn’t mean the relationship won’t last. We aren’t living in the 1890’s anymore!!!

Melissa on

Congrats to them! I love her as an actress πŸ™‚

ll65 on

WOW so cool and I’m a huge NYCB fan and have seen Benjamin perform many times! Congrats to the couple!

Chelsea on

I’m with Jana! Good grief, Ella! I get the sentiment, but really, if anything, a baby could strengthen their relationship tenfold! Maybe not, but hey, who are you to say?

Lau on

Wow, definitely didn’t see this one coming either! I love Natalie, so all the best for her =)

kathy on

Although it’s nice news, I’m sick of the Hollywood trend of procreating out of wedlock.

Deirdre on

So exciting! I always love when there are unexpected baby announcements, like Sandra Bullock and now Natalie Portman.

Brooke on

Uh, Kathy… is hardly a “Hollywood Trend”. Check the statistics….However – they are getting married, so what is the problem?

Maya on

Ella – I couldn’t agree more. I really thought she’s the type of person who would first β€Žmarry, then have a baby. She seems quite traditional. Really surprised, but congrats to β€Žher.β€Ž

klutzy_girl on

Kathy, it’s not a Hollywood trend. Or a trend at all. Lots of people have kids without getting married and that’s perfectly fine.

Sarah on

Kathy it’s hardly a Hollywood trend, it is becoming more common for couples to have children before marriage. My brother and his wife were together for nearly fourteen years and had two children before eloping last summer. Marriage is just a piece of paper, love is what truly matters

Sarah on

That being said, I am thrilled for Natalie and Benjamin! I have loved her since Leon and they make a beautiful couple

Sky on

AWWWWW!! I love her!

alice jane on

kathy, times are changing. I respect everyone’s rights to express their opinion, but these days, marriage is no guarantee. I think it’s much more important that both parents are happy and have a good relationship, whether they’re married or not.

cat on

Totally unexpected news! Congratulatios to Natalie and Benjamin!

Luna on

Wow that shocks me! I too didn’t even know she had a boyfriend. But this is great news. She seems like such a classy, elegant lady. I’m so thrilled for her and Benjamin. Congrats.

October on

I liked Natalie Portman in the Black Swan. She rocked out the house in that movie. Not a fan of any of her other movies to be honest. She’s just an okay actor. It’s a shame the guy she’s marrying dumped his long time girlfriene of 3 years for her. What goes around comes around. I bet after the baby is born. They will divorce due to his cheating.

Jacqui on

I understand getting pregnant first then getting engaged, or getting engaged and then getting pregnant, but what I completely DO NOT understand are these engagements that go on for four, five, ten years. That, to me, is ridiculous. Hopefully she will go ahead and marry her fiancee within a reasonable time frame.

Shannon on

Would’ve loved to see them get engaged and married first! Seems like there are a lot of marriages created due to these types of surprises. Hope it lasts! – Ella on December 27th, 2010

^^^Who says it was a surprise? Maybe the baby was planned. You never know…

erilynne on

Congrats to her and her fiance! not to be negative but I hope they aren’t marrying because of the pregnancy, would be a shame if the relationship fizzles. If they planned it then planned on getting married I don’t see anything wrong then.

Anonymous on

Jana- Actually Ella (and I) have a reason to feel that way. Everyone knows it’s not 1890 anymore, but the divorce rate is over 50% now-and the biggest reason for divorce is the simple fact that people did not know one another well enough beforehand. Mix in a child, and well-it’s hard. Many people are not up for that challenge. So it is concerning when you hear about people getting pregnant so soon into a relationship then getting engaged, then getting married….it’s backwards. there is a reason why it is more socially accepted to do it the old fashoned way, studies show that the marriage and the child have a better shot!

Erika on

Congratulations to them on both the engagement and pregnancy! What a wonderful Christmas present to both of them and their families!

Carrie Jo on

Congrats to them!

B.J. on

Anon – the biggest reason for divorce is the simple fact that people did not know one another well enough beforehand.

Um, really? In my parents’ generation (I’m 26), you were an old maid if you weren’t settled and popping out babies by my age. My parents became engaged after a few months, married within a year, and have been married 34 YEARS!! Sometimes, you just know! πŸ™‚

Anywho, I LOVE Natalie Portman, have such a crush on her so I was surprised by this as well! I saw Black Swan last week… really creepy but man, Natalie is an AMAZING actress!!

shalay on

Anonymous, the reason for high divorce rates is due to the inability to communicate with one another and also the fact that divorce is very accepted in today’s society. It has nothing to do with whether they were expecting a baby at the time they got engaged or how long they had been together.

Congrats to Natalie & Benjamin! She’s always been very intelligent and poised. Seems like she’ll make a great mom!

Crystal on

I read somewhere that Natalie and her fiancΓ©e have been dating since fall 2009 so nearly a year and a half. Just fyi! πŸ™‚ on

I wonder if she’ll have a Luke or a Leia. (:

Erin on

I hate to break it to Anonymous, Ella, kathy and others – but the main reason for divorce is money. Not getting married too soon, not that the couple didn’t know each other well enough, not that they had a baby first. MONEY. The highest divorce rates in the nation take place where the median incomes are the lowest (the South and Midwest). We’re a nation that likes to spend money, whether we have it or not. (Valid topic of discussion, but hardly relevant to this thread) And by the way, arranged marriages have the highest “success” (in terms of not getting divorced). I hardly think you would suggest Americans go that route. So don’t worry about Natalie or any other person who goes about things “backwards”. Worry about your finances, your ability to communicate with your partner with brutal honesty, and your own troubles.

Superficially – I bet that’s going to be one cute kid!

Toya L. on

I too think you should be engaged, married and then start a family. Congrats!!!

kal on

… and hearts break all around the world! Congratulations to Natalie, such an intelligent woman and talented actor.

Ella on

Erin- the number one divorce reason is money. Okay great. So…how do you think people start fighting over money? Money is short, they got pregnant too early, there’s not enough money…

Natalie is lucky. This is purely anecdotal, but not many women I have seen who have babies before marriage end up married to the father. It’s sad. I just thought Natalie would be a bit more classy and wait until she is married.

Jessie on

Congrats to them. Too bad Natalie joins the “meet a guy and he leave his gf for you…and now you are pregnant with his baby” club.

They are gorgeous couple though. I wish them luck.

Nella on

Congrats!! I am completely surprised by this, didn’t even know she had a boyfriend, but she’s a pretty private person. I actually saw Black Swan last night and she did a great job! As far as divorce goes I thought Money was the number one reason for divorce, then I believe it was infidelity after that. Anyways, Honestly I don’t judge people who choose to have kids before getting married. Different things work for different people. I know plenty of people who have been in long term loving relationships (not married) and have children together and things seem to work. I personally would like to be married first, but I don’t judge others that don’t. Plus you never know where life will take you, maybe that would happen to me someday and the last thing I would want is people judging me and forming negative opinions of me. I’m sure this is a very happy moment in her life, so spoiling it would be a shame.

Alma on

In my opinion there is nothing wrong with having a child without being married.My parents had my brother before they got married and after getting married they had me and my sister and they have been happily married in 26 years. And I have two children and I’m not married.What I’m saying is that although people are not married then they can be very in love and ready to have children together just like me and my boyfriend.
Amazing how people can judge without knowing anything.

But congrats to Natalie and Benjamin, I’ve loved her since I saw her in Where the heart goes.

D's Mom on

I am thrilled by this news. Natalie is an extraordinary talent and so happy that she is going to be able to share all of her imagination and creativity with a little one. Congratulations on your engagement and your best and most fulfilling role as a mother. Enjoy every moment, it goes by so fast!

JMO on

I t hink some people just really find the need at some point in their lives to want to settle and/or have kids! I just turned 28 and finding myself single but at this point I’m ready to have kids! Do I sit around and wait for someone to have them with or do I make a decision somewhere in my life to just go ahead and do it! So far all of my cousins have had kids and none of them have married. In fact my one cousin got pregnant and her and her husband eloped. Fast forward 18 months later and she’s ready for a divorce! She admits she never really wanted to marry him but figured it was the “right” thing to do! In this day and age people don’t have to get married to have children and why should you feel you need to? If it’s something you really want then go for it and if it’s not then don’t. I’m not saying be irresponsible and have tons of babies with all kinds of different people. But if your ready and you find someone you want to have a child with no need to rush the wedding bells. JMO πŸ™‚

Lola on

Jacqui: I’m confused – how does the length of other people’s engagements effect you? Why would you care how long people are engaged for? Some people take a while to get married because of careers or school. A friend of mine went to medical school and got engaged shortly after — she had to wait 3 years to actually get married because she had no time whatsoever to plan the wedding or even attend her own wedding!

Ella: Just wondering…how do you know so much about divorce? Personal experience(s) perhaps?

Rachelsun on

So, because you date someone for 3 years or even get engage and you break it off because you fall for someone else that’s wrong. He is supposed to marry someone he does not love simply because he dated her for 3 years. Give me a break. This is not the dark ages. She is better off knowing it now instead after getting married and having children w/ someone whodoesn’t love you and married you because you had been together for 3 years. You people are ridiculous.

Congratulations to Natalie and Benjamin. They have been together for a year, this is obviously not a couple that barely know each other and they are adults.

Dee on

β€œmeet a guy and he leave his gf for you…and now you are pregnant with his baby” club”

There’s a club for that? Do they have punch and cookies?

CelebBabyLover on

Ella- How do you know it was Natalie’s intention to get pregnant before marriage? Maybe she fully intended to wait until she was married before having kids….but the baby had other ideas!

Anyway, as for her fiance’ leaving his then-gf for her……Was that ever actually confirmed, or was that just what the tabloids said? And why is it that people forget that getting together with someone who left his girlfriend for you does NOT always mean he will leave you as well?

Look at Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, for example. Paul left his first wife for Joanne (in fact, if I’m remembering correctly, Paul and Joanne married literally the day after Paul’s divorce became final)…and, as another post said, they were married for over 50 years, with the marriage only ending because of Paul’s tragic death.

If I’m remembering correctly, Tom Hanks is another celebrity that left his girlfriend/wife (I forget which she was) for another woman. Yet he and Rita Wilson are still married, and have been for several years. πŸ™‚

Anyway, congrats to Natalie and Ben!

CelebBabyLover on

Oh, and the last part of this article made me chuckle: “This will be the first child for the actress, who is due in 2011.” Uh, no kidding, Moms & Babies! Unless Natalie is due any day (which isn’t too likely, since there’s no way she could have gotten away with hiding a pregnancy for that long!), naturally she’s due in 2011 since it will be 2011 in less than a week. πŸ™‚

B.R. on

WOW I am so happy for her and I truly wish her and Ben all the best. Kal I think you are right there are hearts breaking all over the world, now that she has chosen someone to spend the rest of her life with.

As for the rest of the thread. Marriage is no longer needed to have a baby or a house, or each others health insurance, so why do it. Women no longer need a man in order to open up bank accounts, buy a house, or drive and own a car, which was the main reason for getting married once upon a time. So I say all the more power to her for choosing her own way in life. If she wants to have the baby first, wait a few years, have another, then get married, or do it in any other order, I am sure she will be happy and have a great life, and be amazing mother which at the end of it all is all that matters. Congratulations to the couple once more, i wish them a healthy and happy baby and easy pregnancy and deliver of the bundle of joy.


Kathy on

Oh, I’m perfectly well aware that it’s “2000 and blah, blah, blah… not 1860” and that people can have kids without getting married. I personally think a child deserves to enter the world in a loving, committed, strong, formal relationship. If you aren’t married, it’s informal. I just am sick of the Hollywood headlines of couples banging out kids outside of wedlock and then also marrying because they are expecting. Cart before the horse. I’m a traditionalist though.

Amanda on

Chelsea- babies do anything BUT make a relationship stronger. They test relationships to the max, they make you realize how two people feel about life in the long term, different parenting types, and so on. Even the strongest relationships can face hard times after children come along (and yes some of it is about money, but obviously Natalie won’t be facing this). I’m not going to say anything about Natalie’s relationship because she is private and we/I know nothing about it. I think it’s ideal to be married before having kids, but I don’t think it’s a sign of how strong or weak a relationship is.

I am so happy for her, she is one of my favorite actresses and I can’t wait to see her little cutie!

Cici on

I heard he dumped his longtime live-in girlfriend to be with Natalie so hopefully he isn’t just doing all this to glom onto a celebrity or worse is a cheater by nature. I wish her and the baby the best. Not sure about him.

StephanieF on

What wonderful news! Babies are such a blessing, and willing to bet this baby will be absolutely gorgeous! Congrats to Natalie and Benjamin and their families. I am sure they are all elated!

And for all the comments on marriage, and out of wedlock babies…It’s none of our business! I find it hilarious! The speculation of her getting pregnant on purpose, on accident…seriously, none of our business. I can never understand all the negative comments on here. Would you actually say these things to someone right to their face?


Jill on

Yah!!! I am a huge fan of Natalie’s and am so happy for her and her fiance!!

I have to say I find humor in the comments about people hearing he cheated on his ex. Did you have coffee with him and he confided in you? We all know that magazines report so much gossip……so why believe it and spread it at a time of joy in his life.

I have no problems with a baby to a couple not married. I do hope that couples don’t get married just because they are pregnant though…..that seems wrong to me.

Maggie on

You are all joking, right? If your daughter told you she was getting married to, because she was pregnant by, a guy who left his live in girlfriend of three years 11 months ago, and she broke up with her boyfriend, 10 months ago, and hooked up, would you be thrilled? I suppose she is smart enough to graduate from Harvard, but not smart enough to learn how to use birth control? If she was not a movie star, the reactions to this news would be different. Hypocrites all.

JMO on

Kathy I agree children should have two parents who are committed to each other. But it doesn’t need to be through a piece of paper. When you have a child your already committed to being a part of each others lives forever! And kids can be raised in happy loving homes with one or two parents. All that matters is the child is thriving and happy and mom and dad whether together or not respect each other.

Most couples who end up married end up divorced so the insitution of marriage is already broken for many.

I much rather see a father and mother happily raising a child a part then raising them together while being completely miserable. Kids know. Trust me I grew up in a house where I would have loved it had my parents divorced!!!

kai on

Am I the only one who’s actually a little disappointed by the engagement? I remember Natalie being pretty critical about marriage in the past. I realize that she’s allowed to change her mind and that it is really absolutely none of my business, it’s just that I agreed with her.

Selene on

I cant wait to see her at (and hopefully win) The Acadamy Awards with her little bump.
She is such a talented actress and appears to be a lovely person. I am so happy for her and Benjamin,

Dee on

Yeah, the traditional old-fashioned way was to get engaged, married, and give birth 5 months later to a miraculous 9 pound preemie.

melania on

Wow, this is surprising for some reason. Maybe because she seems like such a private person? Not anymore, though! I’m sure she’ll be photographed nonstop for the next year. No need to get married before kids, in my opinion. My husband and I had 3 kids together before we got married and 1 since. It was important to my parents and grandparents for us to get married, so we did it. Going on 10 years this June.

Erin on

Dee, you made me LOL. I did a research paper on childbirth in the Middle Colonies during the late 16th-17th century. And public records show that more than fifty percent of children born were conceived months before a marriage record shows up for his/her parents! Natalie and Benjamin literally did it the old fashioned way!

Kathy on

I’m surprised because Natalie has blatantly said in the past that she’ll never get married because she “doesn’t need a piece of paper”. Why now? Because she’s expecting?

Kristy on

Lola I think its a bit rude to attack Ella because of her knowledge of divorces and suggest a personal experience? Come on ! The news and papers are filled with information about divorces. Didn’t you know? Perhaps you should apologize… You don’t know what background the person has and its not appropriate to rub stuff like that in someone face

carey on

If Natalie and Benjamin get married, the marriage won’t last long. Looks like they both are just interested in each other for physical reasons.
Women are not intelligent/rational/smart beings when they think or believe to be “in love”. The same thing can happen to men.
Marriages do not last long because people are not with their brains in reality, they have these crazy ideals of marriage that do not exist and they want to live up a dream.
If people married for the right reasons perhaps their marriages would last longer…

I’m impressed that Natalie who has put education as an important matter for her to the point of studying at Harvard and being a graduate in Psychology didn’t used her brain before being knocked up and getting engaged.

One thing is sure. The kid won’t ever struggle financially. If along the way he/she gets off the rails (drugs, psych/emotional problems or whatever) he has money to fix what’s possible to fiz with money.

CelebBabyLover on

Kathy- Maybe Natalie *gasp* changed her mind. It could be that, after she met Ben, she realized he’s the guy for her and that she wanted to marry him. Anyway, I have to chuckle a bit at people saying that they got engaged because of the pregnancy. We have absolutly no idea as to when they actually got engaged.

They just announced the engagement now, yes, but for all we know they were engaged before the pregnancy occured. As other people have said, Natalie is a very private person, so it wouldn’t be all that surprising if they got engaged awhile ago and just kept the news secret.

Maggie- How do you know she wasn’t using birth control and/or wasn’t using it properly? The only 100 percent reliable form of birth control is abstinence. She may have been very careful about correctly using birth control for all we know, but it failed. One of my biggest pet peeves about this site is how people automatically assume that any celeb who got pregnant out of wedlock either wasn’t using birth control or was using it improperly.

Also, it wasn’t 11 months ago that they got together, nor did she break up with her previous boyfriend 10 months ago. As another poster said, they have been dating since fall 2009, which means they’ve been together for over a year now.

Jill- Right on! I don’t get why so many people seem to take what the tabs say as the gospel truth!

Amanda- I get what you’re saying, but I disagree that babies can’t make a relationship stronger. I had a lot of health and developmental issues when I was a baby, and that’s the kind of thing that’s either going to tear a couple apart or bring them closer together. Well, guess what? In my parents’ case, it brought them closer together and yes, strengthed their relationship!

Dee- “There’s a club for that? Do they have punch and cookies?” ROFLOL!

rachelsun- You said it! Unless Ben actually cheated on his then-girlfriend with Natalie, what’s the problem with him realizing he’d be happier with someone else? IMO, it’s better to be honest about something like that and end the relationship rather than stay in the relationship because it’s the “right” thing to do and then ultimately end up cheating on your signifcant other.

Nella- Beautifully said! I, too, would personally choose to get married before having kids. Heck, I wouldn’t even choose to sleep with someone I wasn’t married to (yes, in that regard I’m one of the really old-fashioned oddballs of my generation!)! However, I’m not about to judge people that DO choose to do those things before marriage.

In fact, in a perfect example of how different two people, even siblings, can be, my brother has been with his girlfriend for several years….and not only are they not married, but they have no plans to marry either. It’s not the choice I would make for myself, and I’ll admit I was a bit dissapointed when my brother made that choice.

However, I realize that although it isn’t the right choice for me, it’s the right choice for him and his girlfriend. Marriage isn’t for everyone, and I respect that.

Lola- I get where Jacqui’s coming from. I sometimes wonder myself why people get engaged and then take so long to get married. Also, while I see where you’re coming from about people waiting because they don’t have the time, you don’t neccesarily need a lot of time to get married. For example, you can go to a courthouse and get married fairly quickly.

You can even throw together a church wedding in a relatively short time if you have to. My grandparents are a perfect example about that. When they got engaged, it was right in the middle of World War II, and my grandfather had just been drafted to serve in the army and was to report for duty within just a few weeks. They didn’t let that stop them, though! They managed to get a rush on their marriage license and had a church wedding just days later.

Incidentally, a lot of people also thought they were rushing the wedding because they were expecting. Well, that was the longest pregnancy in history, because my mom wasn’t born until over 10 years later! πŸ™‚ Just goes to show that you shouldn’t just jump to conclusions!

Sorry about the novel! I just had to get all that stuff off my chest!

CelebBabyLover on

Oh, and on a lighter note….I loved Natalie in the Star Wars prequal trilogy! It’ll be very interesting the next time I watch Episode III, knowing that Padme is pregnant for real! πŸ™‚

CelebBabyLover on

carey- How in the world can you possibly know that the marriage won’t last or what reasons they’re attracted to each other? When you think about it, we really know next to nothing about them!

CelebBabyLover on

Naturally I meant I WOULDN’T choose to get married before having kids in my first post!

Maya on

carey – loved your comment. Right on sista! πŸ™‚

Luciana on

You people really should learn to take care of your own lives.

crg on

I agree, you can’t assume that it wasn’t a planned pregnancy, but really- what are the chances that it was planned?? Very slim. I don’t care either way, I just hope that they actually get married and that it lasts, for their child. Good luck to them.

Maddie on

I wish them luck πŸ™‚

Why can’t people just be happy for them? My goodness she’s 29 years old. She’s fully capable of having and raising a baby, even if it’s not “the old fashioned way”.

seriously... on

@CelebBabyLover: Yawn. Yeah, we get it. You have a very rosy vision of the world and think the other posters need your brilliant insights on things. Seriously, enough with the super long and super frequent posts over every tiny little thing. No one’s asked your advice and everyone has their own opinion; you don’t need to jump to ‘correct’ it or to find faults in it every time someone posts.

Dee on

She is one of those young actresses who truly loves what she does and has passion for the arts. Her life if never blasted in the tabloids and she is able to thrive professionally and personally.

She is truly an example of class, grace and beauty and all these Hollywood tarts out there in the limelight should take note. ZI am happy for her. She will be a beautiful mother πŸ™‚

jessicad on

seriously, I didn’t even read all the comments but CelebBabyLover is one the nicest posters here and your response was really rude, it wasn’t necessary. She always finds a positive in every situation and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. No need to be a bully.

Shoshana on

Some of you need to get over yourselves and realize that this is a 29 year old woman who is engaged and having a baby!!!! It’s wonderful and beautiful news! If she were your best friend I’m sure you’d all be soooo happy for her and thrilled to be attending a baby and bridal shower in the coming months!! Way to go, Natalie!!!

Jacqui on

CelebBabyLover, I like your “very rosy vision” of things! Don’t go changin’!

Stella Bella on

Totally agree with Shoshana.

Frank on

Wow…They sure didn’t waste any time…lol Seriously Congratulations to them…I’m really happy for them! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Jess on


The highest divorce rates are in the Midwest and South because of lower income? Probably should look into that statistic a little more. It’s not because of low income, it’s because of higher marriage rates. I guarantee you that people in those areas are much more apt to get married…. which, in turn, would skew the stats in the East Coast and West Coast’s favor. It’s not because they have less money.

Cate on

I personally am most excited to see her pregnancy fashion! Especially her choice for an Oscar dress – because let’s face it, she’s going to be nominated. Can’t wait to see how she dolls up that bump!

B.R on

@seriously you may not have a agree with everything that others say, heck you don’t have to read it if a poster upsets you but leave CelebBabyLover alone. She truly is one of the nicest people on this site, she is always respectful of other, and always has something beautiful and wonderful to say. So yes maybe she sees the rosy vision of the world, good for her, she has found happiness in a very harsh world, without ever being ignorant of the true issues in it. She has found balance in her life, which is one of the hardest thing to do. Maybe all of us should be more like her, it would make for a better and happier place to live.

CelebBabyLover thank you for being your beautiful, wonderful, self. For being honest about who you are, your feelings, and opinions. And for always treating others with the out most respect. I for one love reading your posts, and have always had out most respect for you and your vision of the world and treatment of other. On a personal note thank you for believing me, about who I am, about my dear friends, but most of all thank you for standing up for me when my anger was getting the better of me and I was not able to do it myself. That alone shows your true character. Your never ending beauty, goodness, and respect comes true in all of your posts. You truly are an amazing and kind person, please don’t ever change.

Why such a backlash toward Ella, Kathy and Anonymous? If tolerance is the order of the day and “marriage doesn’t matter”, why doesn’t that work both ways? Why can’t you let Ella, Kathy and Anonymous have and share their own opinions without insulting them?

I love Natalie Portman. She is by far one of the best actresses of her age group (which happens to be my age group too lol) and she is certainly one of the most beautiful. And her fiance is just adorable. Congrats to them on the upcoming baby and nuptials. I was surprised when I heard she was preggers but she’ll be an awesome mom for sure.
