As per People, according to a friend of the couple, the separation has been challenging for Portman, following reports of Millepied’s extramarital affair in May 2023.

“It was initially really tough for her, but her friends rallied around her and helped get her through the worst of it,” the insider revealed.

“Natalie is coming out of a really tough and painful year but she’s come out the other side of it stronger and is finding joy in her family, friends and work.”

Throughout their split, Portman and Millepied, 46, have remained united in their commitment to their children, son Aleph, 12, and daughter Amalia, 7.
