Natalie Portman, Benjamin Millepied baby boy's name revealed


Natalie Portman and fiance Benjamin Milliepied have been pretty secretive about the birth of their son. How secretive? They haven't even announced what his name is. Well, not on these shores, anyway.

The couple somehow let the cat out of the bag to Israeli TV show Good Evening with Guy Pines, according to (because who doesn't let Guy Pines know the score first and foremost?), saying the boy's name is Alef. The site notes Alef (or Aleph) is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and can represent "oneness with God." You forgot Nat was born in Israel, didn't you?

The couple haven't confirmed the news as being true, but hey, we've got to call the kid something. It's not like they're going to release photos anytime soon -- although I have to admit, after welcoming Baby Juice* a couple weeks ago, I can understand not wanting to make too much public.
