Aleph Portman-Millepied: Natalie Portman's Baby Son's Name

UPDATE: People.com confirms that Portman's son is indeed named Aleph.


He's Natalie Portman's first child, and, if rumors are true, he has a very symbolic and orderly name.

A report at Israel Hayom relays that the Israeli TV show "Good Evening with Guy Pines," revealed that Portman named her and fiance Benjamin Millepied's first son, born in June, Aleph, which is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Portman, of course, is a native Israeli, having originally been given the name Natalie Hershlag.

The report on the TV show aired last month; The Huffington Post also received a tip last month that Portman had indeed named her son Aleph, but her representatives declined to confirm. HuffPost has reached out once again for comment, and will update when more is known.
