Natalie Portman filmed a music video days before giving birth to her daughter, Amalia.
The video for James Blake’s song “My Willing Heart” is filmed in black and white, and features Portman and her bump. The Israeli-born star swims, rubs her belly, dances with a toddler, and watches her skin ripple as the baby kicks inside her womb.
The 35-year-old Oscar-winning actress attended the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards in January but was unable to attend the Oscars, held a few days after Amalia’s birth, where she was nominated for best actress for her performance in “Jackie,” about the late US First Lady Jackie Kennedy.
Amalia, born on February 22, is the second child for Portman and her husband, French choreographer Benjamin Millepied, six years after the birth of their son Aleph.
The song is from Blake’s third studio album “The Colour in Anything,” released in 2016, which reached number one in the US Dance/Electronic Album charts.
The song was co-written by Blake and Frank Ocean, and the video was directed by directed by Anna Rose Holmer.
