Natalie PortmanPregnant actress Natalie Portman has credited Darren Aronofsky with her current happiness - insisting the director gave her the "greatest gift" by introducing her to fiancé Benjamin Millepied on the set of Black Swan.

The Closer actress announced last month she and choreographer Millepied are engaged and expecting their first child, and she subsequently revealed she is "indescribably happy".

The couple met during the filming of Aronofsky's ballet movie Black Swan, and Portman admits she has forgiven the moviemaker for forcing her to lose weight for the role, because he is responsible for bring her together with Millepied.

She tells Extra, "I told Darren, I was like, 'First you got me skinny, and now you're getting me fat', because he introduced me to my fiance. It's the greatest gift he ever gave me."
