Natalie Portman filmed music video days before giving birth


Natalie Portman may have skipped the Oscars this year due to her pregnancy, but that didn't stop the "Jackie" actress from filming a music video just days before giving birth.

James Blake featured the expectant mother in his video for "My Willing Heart," released on Monday.

In the black and white video, directed by Anna Rose Holmer, features a very pregnant Portman swimming in a pool and later caressing her baby bump.

Later, an dramatic first-person perspective shot shows her baby squirming and kicking in utero.

Portman gave birth to her daughter, Amalia, on February 22 — days after the video was shot.
