VIDEO: Natalie Portman: Becoming a Mom "Feels Very Natural"

The No Strings Attached star dishes about being pregnant and the Valentine's Day gift that once made her feel like a "beast"


A Golden Globe winner for her dark turn in Black Swan, a mom-to-be and newly engaged to fiancé Benjamin Millepied, Natalie Portman has started off 2011 with plenty to celebrate. Though the 29-year-old actress, who's currently starring in No Strings Attached with Ashton Kutcher, feels "really, really lucky" about her pregnancy, she has yet to wrap her head around the fact that she's going to be a mom. "But it also feels very natural, so it's just very exciting," Portman tells iVillage exclusively.

With awards show season keeping her busy, it will be a while before Portman can actually start planning for the birth of her baby. "I'm just flowing with it," says Portman. "It's a lot happening."

Watch our exclusive video interview to find out how her award-winning role made her nights out not as fun and the Valentine's Day gift that once made her "feel like a beast!"
