Although Natalie Portman gave birth to her son Aleph in New York, she and fiance Benjamin Millepied have since moved back to LA. If you want to pursue a career in arts, New York is the place to be. So why would Benjamin, a successful ballet dancer, relocate to Los Angeles? He quit. That’s right. Ben quit his job to be a stay-at-home baby daddy and so that Natalie can “focus on her career.”
Benjamin, 34, is one of ballet’s most in-demand choreographers, but since Natalie gave birth in June, his priorities have changed.
An In Touch magazine source reveals: “Benjamin retired from his position at the New York City Ballet so Natalie could get back to her career. He wants to support her.”
Natalie reportedly wants to start working again and Benjamin “understood that one of them was going to have to make a sacrifice.”
This is bullsh!t. Natalie doesn’t have to reside in Los Angeles to be an actress, and they could have tried to work around each other’s schedules. Ben is an effing choreographer, he could easily pick projects that don’t require an intense schedule, like shooting movies would require a lot of hours for Natalie. Sh!t, he could even keep modeling if he wanted to contribute, but I think that this was all part of his master plan. No matter how much Benjamin loves dancing, he probably loves Natalie’s bank account more. She’ll be knocked up again by Christmas if she doesn’t watch it.
