She won the top honor at last night’s Academy Awards, and Natalie Portman was glowing for more reasons than one.

After nabbing the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in “Black Swan,” the 29-year-old beauty spoke of her pregnancy while telling reporters, “One of the most exciting things about being pregnant is that I'm accepting the complete unknown. It's a complete mystery and miracle. It's really just accepting that I have no idea, which is what all of us live every day.”

The actress added that being pregnant reminded her "where your meaning is, what is actually important in the midst a lot of shiny stuff that is more superficial."

Natalie also mentioned that her unborn child morphed into a “little dancer” during the ceremony.

"I don't remember anything that happened. But the baby was definitely kicking a lot during the song portion of the show."

Portman is engaged to 33-year-old choreographer Benjamin Millepied.
