Natalie Portman reunites with Benjamin Millepied after affair
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied are excelling at co-parenting despite their estrangement. The former couple was spotted reuniting at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup final on Sunday, following reports of Millepied’s alleged affair. In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, they were seen sitting on opposite sides of their 12-year-old son, Aleph, while cheering on England’s Lionesses against Spain’s La Roja at Stadium Australia in Sydney. Portman, 42, looked stylish in a tan coat and white shirt, while Millepied, 46, opted for a dark jacket. This rare family outing comes two months after sources revealed that Portman had discovered her partner’s infidelity with a 25-year-old woman named Camille Étienne, who is a climate activist. The couple, who tied the knot in 2012, had separated last year but were determined to work through their marital issues. An insider shared that Millepied is doing everything possible to win back Portman’s forgiveness as he deeply loves her and their family. Portman, being incredibly private, prioritizes the protection of their children, Aleph and 6-year-old Amalia. Although Amalia was not present at the World Cup final, the trio enjoyed watching the game together. Despite the alleged infidelity, Portman appeared cheerful at a soccer match in Paris and was photographed wearing her wedding ring at the French Open. However, she was seen without the ring on her 11th anniversary earlier this month. Us Weekly reported on August 7th that Portman and Millepied had separated, but their representatives have not responded to TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment. It is worth noting that the couple’s reunion at the World Cup final follows recent reports of their separation. The alleged affair between Millepied and Camille Étienne has been a significant challenge for their marriage, and they are currently going through a difficult phase. Portman and Millepied began dating in 2009 after meeting on the set of “Black Swan.” They tied the knot in Big Sur, California, three years later and welcomed their children, Aleph and Amalia, in 2011 and 2017, respectively.
