Natalie Portman's Baby A-list Name 'Alef' Revealed
According to the Israel's Israel Hayom, the Oscar-winning actress gave birth to fiance Benjamin Millepied's child last month and she has honoured her Jewish roots by naming the boy after the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. As first reported by the Israel Hayom newsletter, the name was revealed on the Israeli TV show Good Evening With Guy Pines.
Aleph, born on June 14, will also take both his parents' surnames - Portman-Millipied. "Aleph" is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and has possible meanings including "leader" and "the oneness of God." Closer to its religious roots in Judaic Kabbalah, it translates to "primordial one that contains all numbers."
