Jonathan Safran Foer better check his inbox for an email from Natalie Portman, because some carefully worded congratulations are in order. The “Black Swan” actress is reportedly pregnant with her second child with husband Benjamin Millepied, according to Us Weekly. 

Rumors of Portman’s pregnancy started swirling on the red carpet on Thursday, when the actress made an appearance at the 73rd Venice Film Festival to promote the sci-fi flick “Planetarium.” Dressed in a one-shoulder floor-length cream gown, the 35-year-old and her growing baby bump stole the show.

The couple, who met filming the psychological ballet thriller, welcomed their first child, Aleph Portman-Millepied, in June 2011. Portman famously accepted the award for “Black Swan” at the Academy Awards while pregnant with her son and gave a special shoutout. 

“So many people helped me prepare for this role,” she said in her acceptance speech. “My beautiful love, Benjamin Millepied, who choreographed the film and has now given me my most important role of my life.”
