The very pregnant Natalie Portman gorgeously flaunts her baby bump in James Blake’s latest music video for My Willing Heart. The artistic creation is directed by Anna Rose Holmer. It does not only serve as a dazzling illustration, but also a precious pregnancy keepsake for the mom of two.
By now, the Oscar winner has already given birth to her second child. Although her daughter is out now, Blake’s music video is a priceless remembrance of Natalie’s final weeks of pregnancy.
Blake’s music video was released on Monday, March 20. Only a month after the star gave birth to her daughter.
In the black and white video, the Jackie star’s silhouette is the centerpiece. The 35 year-old celebrity is seen swimming, sitting and lounging with her bare bump in full focus. She gracefully moves through the water wearing a two-piece bikini. She is also seen sitting on a bed wearing lingerie and a comfy coat while caressing her bump.
Furthermore, it is uncertain if her son, Aleph makes a cameo in the music video. A toddler makes a brief appearance to embrace Natalie’s bump. In a different shot, the actress’ belly moves as her baby seems to change positions inside.
Even though most of the actress’ second pregnancy matched with a press tour and award season for Jackie later, many cannot figure out when exactly she was due.
“It’s weird because I’m a small person in general, so you show a lot faster and a lot more when you’re small,” the petite celebrity told Jimmy Fallon.
Natalie continued, “Everyone thinks I’m about to pop and about to give birth any minute, and I have months to go…I went to the store the other day to buy water and the guy at the checkout counter was like, ‘Almost, huh?’ I was like, ‘No! Not at all!'”
According to a press release, the video was shot only a few days before Natalie actually gave birth. Also, the actress wasn’t able to attend the 2017 Independent Spirit Awards and the 2017 Oscars. Both were scheduled a few days after she delivered her daughter.
Natalie was nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for her role as Jackie Kennedy Onassis. However, she was eventually defeated by La La Land’s Emma Stone.
The award-winning actress and husband, Benjamin Millepied welcomed a baby girl, Amalia Millepied, on February 22. Benjamin is a dancer-choreographer who worked with Natalie on Black Swan. He is the former dance director of the Paris Opera Ballet as well.
A rep said, “Mother and baby are happy and healthy!” The couple are also parents to 5-year-old son Aleph.
