Congratulations to Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied on the birth of their new son! According to People Magazine, the Oscar winner welcomed her first child on Tuesday (June 14th). No word yet on any other details – including the name!

Portman, 30, first announced she was pregnant back in January, saying how much she was looking forward to this new part of her life. ”I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience.”

Ellen DeGeneres kicked off tweets of tribute to the actress saying, “I’m so happy for my dance protégée Natalie Portman and her new baby boy! Congratulations!”

While Portman has been an advocate for the vegan diet, she did revert to being a strict vegetarian while pregnant. “I know there are people who do stay vegan, but I think you have to just be careful, watch your iron levels and your B12 levels and supplement those if there are things you might be low in in your diet,” she said in April.

Congrats to the new family!
