Although the star is normally very private about her personal life, she couldn't help gushing about her impending Motherhood recently, saying;

"I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience,"

She also admitted she would likely make "lots of mistakes but I am open to learning"

Father to be Benjamin also added;

"I'm going to take a lot of time off to enjoy this new stage of life that I'm really looking forward to," he said.

"It's the unknown and there's something so exciting when you know life one way and you can do all kinds of projects and exciting things, but this is going to be so different and new and I love that idea."

Congratulations to both new parents, we've no doubt that these two are going to do a great job, and we can't wait to see the pics of the new baby Portman.
