His name is Benjamin Millepied, he is a dancer and choreographer of French descent and was born on 10 June 1977. Millipied has lived and worked in America since 1995, after joining the New York City Ballet. His mother is Catherine Flori, a former ballet dancer, and she began training him at the age of 8.
Millipied and Portman met on the set of the Black Swan in early 2009. There he proved that he could do more than just dance, according to E!News. The role of Portman and Mila Kunis’ dance partner came after he volunteered for the role in which he convinced the audience that he didn’t want to sleep with his co-star.
He also flexed his acting muscles in Time Doesn’t Stand Still, a romantic short film he made with director Asa Mader. In addition to his acting, dancing and choreography, he paints and considers himself an amateur photographer. In January 2011 Millepied stopped dancing with the NYCB.

Natalie Portman’s husband told The Times about his retirement: “I danced for a large ballet company because I danced for so long for the work of others while making my own that these one and a half years were really a cleansing for me and my body, I had to start with a clean slate.
Natalie and Benjamin got married in August 2012 after they had been together since 2009. In 2010 they were engaged and expecting their first child. It was not until two years later that the couple exchanged vows in a Jewish ceremony in a private house overlooking the ocean after dark, and from that moment on he became Natalie Portman’s husband.
Portman recently told the French magazine Madame Figaro: “Nothing is more important than my private life, it is something that comes first, always makes sense, and compared to the happiness of a successful family life, everything else is practically superficial.
In addition, Portman is considering becoming a French citizen, she told the magazine.
I now have the opportunity to become a French citizen. It would fulfill the francophile dreams of my father and myself. I lived in Paris when I was 12 and my father gave me the name Natalie in homage to the song by Gilbert Bécaud. Everything in my life has attracted me to a French family”.
