Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied are taking another step in their union as it's been reported that the French dancer and choreographer is currently in the process of converting to Judaism.

The couple, who famously met on the set of Black Swan in 2009 and tied the knot in 2012, are residing in Israel with their 2-year-old son Aleph while the actress works on her directorial debut, A Tale of Love and Darkness.

Millepied, who revealed the news to local paper Yediot Acharonot this week, added in his conversion papers he's hoping the process can "come to an end soon and I will become a Jew."

Jessica Biel and Miss Dior Natalie Portman turned heads as each lovely lady arrived for the second evening of the Guggenheim International Gala held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City on Thursday.

For the Dior sponsored event, Portman, who has a major contract with Parfums Christian Dior, donned the brand in a hybrid look featuring a part crepe, part draped double silk duchess satin dress with a sheer embellished hem. The Oscar winner also opted for a wavy 'do as well as Black Dior accessories and a Dior Fine Jewelry Bagatelle ring. We love the subtle twist on a classic look!

Meanwhile Mrs. Justin Timblerlake also opted for Dior, wearing a tiered Christian Dior Couture spring/summer 2013 dress for the glittering occasion. The 31-year-old highlighted the colors in the dress with Dior droplet earrings.

Lookin' good ladies! Do you have any extra Dior you want to lend us? We promise we will give it back!

Natalie Portman and hubby Benjamin Millepied didn't attend the Oscars this year, but they certainly didn't go unnoticed at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party at Sunset Tower on Sunday evening.

Natalie looked incredible in Dior (and have you seen her Miss Dior Cheri commercial?), but the loose fit of the dress has sparked rumors that she might be pregnant with the couple's second child.

Natalie and Benjamin welcomed son Aleph Portman-Millepied in June of 2011, and they got married last August in Big Sur. It was previously announced that the family will be moving to Paris as Benjamin has been named as the new director of the Paris Opera Ballet.

Natalie is currently prepping for her role in Jane Got a Gun and she's rumored to be starring in In the Garden of Beasts, but she doesn't have any other film roles lined up after that...

Natalie Portman And Her Family Are Moving To France

Jan 24, 2013 12:45 PM

portman-moving-230.jpgNatalie Portman's husband Benjamin Millepied has been hired as the new director of dance at the Paris Opera Ballet, and he told the New York Times that he and Portman will move to France with their 20-month-old son Aleph.

The gig starts in September of 2014, and Millepied will replace Brigitte Lefevre, who has been the director of dance at the Paris Opera since 1995.

Millepied joined the School of American Ballet as a teenager, and he was previously the choreographer and a former principal at New York City Ballet. The Times notes that Millepied’s new gig came as a bit of a surprise as a current or former company member is generally chosen to lead the Paris Opera Ballet. Interesting!

Millepied and Portman met on the set of Black Swan in 2009 (he was the choreographer and had a brief role opposite Portman), and the duo announced their engagement in December 2010. Portman, who nabbed an Oscar for her role in the film, gave birth to their son Aleph in June 2011, and the couple tied the knot in Big Sur in August of 2012.
