Natalie Portman is officially a mom! She has given birth to her first child, a son, with fiance Benjamin Millepied. Father’s Day will be extra special for Benjamin this weekend as he celebrates being a dad for the very first time.
Now that Natalie and Benjamin have their baby boy, we can’t wait to hear the details of his birth…and find out his name. Why haven’t his parents revealed it yet?
The reason that this little guy’s name has not been announced is likely due to Natalie’s Jewish faith. In the Jewish religion, the baby is typically raised the same religion as his mother. In Judaism, there is an eight-day delay before a baby boy is formally named. On the eighth day after his birth, the baby will be given his Hebrew name and the regular name he will be called at a Bris ceremony.
Family and friends will gather at the Bris, where the baby boy will also undergo circumcision, performed by a Mohel.
Congrats to Natalie and Benjamin. We can’t wait to hear all the details about their baby boy!
