Natalie Portman may be thrilled about her upcoming role as a new mom, but she isn't rushing out to buy baby clothes just yet.
“I’m very superstitious. I'm very Jewish that way," she tells CNN. "We don’t do that."
Portman, who is reportedly due this summer, also appears to be in no hurry to fill her closet with maternity wear.
"I wear sweatpants on a daily basis," she told TV's "Extra." "I just want to be in things that are comfortable now – loose!"
The "Black Swan" star, who is engaged to the film's choreographer, 33-year-old Benjamin Millepied, added that she is excited to be eating for two.
"I told [director] Darren [Aronofsky], I was like, 'First you got me skinny, and now you're getting me fat,' because he introduced me to my fiancé," said the 29-year-old Golden Globe nominee. "It's the greatest gift he ever gave me."
