Natalie Portman named her baby Alef — maybe

Update: People is reporting that the baby’s name is spelled Aleph.

The name of Natalie Portman and fiance Benjamin Millepied’s baby boy has remained unknown since his birth in June — until now?

Newspaper Israel Hayom is reporting, via “The Guy Pines Show” “Good Evening with Guy Pines,” that the couple named their son Alef. The name, also spelled “Aleph” and pronounced “All-Eff,” is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Portman was born Natalie Hershlag in Jeruslaem.

Requests for comment from Portman’s reps have not been returned. And considering there hasn’t been official confirmation that the baby was even born, just a report from People, getting it may be tough. The Huffington Post said it received a tip last month that this was the name.
