Although the heavily pregnant Natalie Portman has repeatedly said "I'm due this summer," a source tells X17online exclusively that Portman will actually deliver her first child this spring.

    "Natalie's due this spring," the source says. "This is a really special time in her life and Natalie wanted to try to keep the attention off her as much as possible. She thought lying about her due date might give her some more privacy in the final months of her pregnancy."

The source goes on to say that Natalie is "at least seven months pregnant" and couldn't be more thrilled to welcome her first baby with fiance Benjamin Millepied this spring.
