Millepied also shared the photograph on his own social media and wrote: "Happy Mother's Day Natalie." Portman also took the time to honor her mother, Shelley Stevens, on the special day.

Sharing an image of the two of them laughing together, the star wrote: "My first blessing in life was to be born to my mom.” The actress described her mother as “the most loving, caring, generous, cuddly, funny, smart, talented, creative person I could ever imagine.”


She added how she was now “blessed” with children of her own who turned her into a mother. Portman credited them for making her “smile and laugh every single day."


She also noted how the pair made her “appreciate” Steven’s “even more for all the invisible things she did for me” that she only realized now. The star concluded her post by revealing that she was trying “to live up to her mothering."


On December 28, 2010, the actress got engaged to the “Black Swan” choreographer. She gave birth to her first child at age 30, on June 14, 2011, while Millepied was still her fiancé.


On August 4, 2012, Portman and Millepied got married after being together for three years. They tied the knot in a private ceremony in Big Sur, California.


She was born Natalie Hershlag on June 9, 1981, in Jerusalem, Israel. The star is the only child of Avner Hershlag, an Israeli-born doctor, and Stevens, an American-born artist from Cincinnati, Ohio, who also acts as her agent.
