Los Angeles: She had earlier predicted that her unborn baby will be a girl but Natalie Portman is expecting a son with her fiance Benjamin Millepied, according to a report.

The pregnant `Black Swan` actress and her dancer partner found out the news at their scan and are said to be "excited" about the boy, due in early spring, reported
a magazine.

"They`ve only told a very small group of family members and friends that they`re expecting a son. They are so excited. Benjamin cannot wait to be a father," a source close
to the pair told the magazine.

The 29-year-old was awarded a Bafta this week for her role in the thriller `Black Swan`, but due to her pregnancy was unable to attend the ceremony.

Director Darren Aronofsky accepted the Bafta on her behalf, saying she "shared her heart and soul and spirit with me and the world".

Portman is tipped to collect a best actress Oscar at next week`s ceremony to complete her set, after already taking home a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award.
