L'chaim, Natalie! Portman's been spreading the good news - her hubby's converting to Judaism!
How far would you be willing to go to gain the hand of the great Israeli beauty Natalie Portman? Her husband has proved his love knows no bounds - not even his personal religion - and has taken the leap of faith to join her belief system.
Benjamin Millepied has gained more than a wife out of his holy matrimony to the Hollywood actress - according to Haaretz.com, the starlet's hubbie of two years has taken on her religion and is on the path of conversion to Judaism.
After falling in love with Benjamin on set the hit film "Black Swan", which he choreographed and co-starred in, the Jewish actress wedded the choreographer and actor in a traditional ceremony according to her faith at a private home in Big Sur, California back in 2012.
Benjamin soon became enamored with Israel as well and has said that he is excited about becoming Jewish.
The happily married twosome are actually traveling through Natalie's homeland right now with their young son Aleph, according to The Times of Israel. Born in Jerusalem, Natalie is no stranger to Israel, but this is her spouse's only second time to travel the region. It was love at first sight for both woman, country, and faith system it seems.
