Natalie Portman and husband Benjamin Millepied host an outdoor birthday party for their daughter Amalia in Sydney’s eastern suburbs

Natalie Portman arrived in Australia in September ahead of filming scenes for Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder.

And on Sunday, the Hollywood actress and her husband Benjamin Millepied hosted a party for their daughter Amalia’s fourth birthday in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The 39-year-old Black Swan star was every inch the doting mother as she carried gifts, arranged drinks, and set up a piñata for guests to enjoy at a local park.

Natalie dressed for the occasion in a pink and white floral frock, adding black strappy sandals and designer sunglasses to the look.

The brunette swept her locks into a sleek chignon at the nape of the neck, and looked to have worn minimal makeup, allowing her natural beauty to shine though.

Very much a hands-on mother, Natalie helped set up a food and drinks table, as well as a cake stand for her daughter and their guests to enjoy.

Ahead of filming scenes for Thor: Love and Thunder, Natalie has been thoroughly enjoying her time in Australia.

In November, she was photographed sipping a glass of wine at Nielsen Park Beach in Sydney’s Vaucluse.

And just recently, she enjoyed some down time and went horse riding in Centennial Park.  

The latest instalment in the Thor franchise is only just starting to take shape as filming began at Fox Studios in Sydney last month.
