Actress Natalie Portman has described her children, five-year-old Aleph and her unborn baby, as her "good luck charms".
The 35-year-old actress is currently expecting her second child with husband Benjamin Millepied and she won the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in "Black Swan" in 2011 when she was pregnant with their son Aleph, now five, and whilst she admits she doesn't think her pregnancy won her the award, she does think her children are "miracles" who make her so happy, reported Entertainment Tonight.
"I think [children are] good luck charms in life. They're the best things. The best main miracles. I don't necessarily connect it [to winning an Oscar], but it is certainly a joy."
The Hollywood star first showed off her baby bump back in August, when she sported a pink one-shoulder dress on the red carpet at the premiere of her film "Planetarium" at the Venice Film Festival.
