Natalie Portman and her fiancé Benjamin Millepied have apparently come to a domestic arrangement.
The actress gave birth to the couple’s first child, Aleph, in June and she has taken some time off to spend with her family.
But when the Oscar winner goes back to work, Benjamin will be putting his own career on the back burner to look after their little one.
The 34-year-old is one of ballet’s most sought after choreographers and he met Natalie while working on her critically acclaimed movie Black Swan. But his priorities are now said to have changed.
“Benjamin retired from his position at the New York City Ballet so Natalie could get back to her career,” a source close to the actress told In Touch. “He wants to support her.”
The hands on father thought that it would be difficult to give the five-month-old baby the attention he needs if both parents were super busy working all the time.
“He understood that one of them was going to have to make a sacrifice, so he gave in,” the source added.
This week, Natalie participated in a live reading of play The Apartment in Los Angeles alongside Steve Carell and Pierce Brosnan.
