Natalie Portman's fiance opens up about fatherhood

Natalie Portman's fiance has opened up about family life following the birth of the couple's first child.

The actress became engaged to dancer Benjamin Millepied after they met on the set of her Oscar-winning ballet movie Black Swan, and she gave birth to a son, named Aleph, in June (11).

Portman has remained out of the spotlight since the birth, but Millepied has now spoken of his joy at becoming a father.

He tells Britain's ES magazine, "The responsibility feels really wonderful and I am very proud and excited to watch his every step. I am absolutely hands-on. Being a dad is fantastic."

Millepied is already sure his little boy won't be following him into the world of dance, adding, "Oh no, no, no. He already has his own personality. He'll make his own choices."
