Portman and Millepied initially began their relationship in 2009 after they met on the set of Black Swan.
The two went on to date for three years before they tied the knot during an intimate ceremony that was held in the getaway destination of Big Sur, California.
Prior to their wedding, the happy couple welcomed Aleph, who was 13 months old at the time of their nuptials, into their lives.
The pair notably waited six years before adding Amalia to their family.

Last year, Portman penned a collection of updated children’s stories entitled Natalie Portman’s Fables, which were released in October.
Shortly before her book’s publication, the actress spoke to Fatherly and revealed she took on the project in an effort to provide her kids with edited versions of classic tales.
‘It was so exciting to get to make a book for them. Obviously, I have an extreme love for them. And to have this tangible form of what I value and what is important to me that I hope inspires them — at the core is really empathy,’ she said.
The V For Vendetta actress also pointed out that she noticed that her children were reading completely different stories and wanted to level the playing field for them.

‘I realized that the books aimed at my daughter were so different from the ones aimed at my son. I wanted classic stories to read to both of them,’ she stated.
Portman then expressed that she modernized the classic tales featured in her book in an effort to provide stories that treated people of opposite sexes equally.
She remarked, ‘I wanted regular stories with characters that reflect the way our world is, which is about half male and half female.’
Portman changed the topic of conversation to how she was raising her children and pointed out that she was waiting to introduce them to major problems present in the world.
‘For me, I don’t really want to talk about the big issues right now with them. I think it’s too early. I started talking to my son a little bit about how to treat people nicely,’ the actress said.

The Closer actress then pointed out that she was interested in how Aleph and Amalia were completely dissimilar in terms of their personalities.
‘I feel like the most surprising thing is how different kids are from each other. They’re just really different people,’ she said.
Portman also noted that she was trying to keep her professional life away from her children, as she wanted them to perceive her solely as a mother.
‘It’s so fun to be part of something that kids relate to so much. I haven’t shown my kids the movies yet — I think it’s so weird for them to think of me as anything other than their mom,’ she remarked.
