While many couples opt for lavish, tropical honeymoons, Natalie Portman and new hubby Benjamin Millepied have decided to keep things low-key.
The two were spotted enjoying an LA Philharmonic concert with 1-year-old son Aleph on Tuesday night.
"[Natalie] looked pretty chilled-out," says one source. "She was wearing jeans and a T-shirt, her hair was down. ... She looked more concerned about keeping [Aleph] quiet and not disturbing anyone, than anything."

The wedding between Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied reflected not just the bride's Jewish faith and the groom's French nationality, but also the couple's outlook on the world.
Instead of having flowers flown in, the ceremony featured wildflowers indigenous to the Big Sur coast where the ceremony took place, and instead of "fish or steak" the menu was strictly vegan in keeping with the bride's diet.
Portman, 31, chose a traditional white gown from Rodarte, the same house that made the purple dress that Portman wore to the 2010 Oscars, and wore a crown of white wildflowers in her hair. The groom, 35, wore a midnight blue tux.

Here comes the bride!
Natalie Portman said "I do" on Saturday night to her fiancé of two years, French dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, on the scenic central California coast of Big Sur, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
Surrounded by family (even 14-month-old son Aleph!) and friends, including Ivanka Trump and Macaulay Culkin, the pair exchanged vows after dark in a Jewish ceremony at a private home facing the ocean.
The Oscar winner, 31, first met Millepied, 35, on the set of Black Swan in the fall of 2009. He worked as a choreographer on the film and the two started to date during the shoot. By December 2010, the couple announced they were engaged and expecting their first child.

A is for ... adorable!
Natalie Portman was happy to lend a helping hand – or two – to her son Aleph during a recent playground visit in Los Angeles.
First-time mom Portman, 30, steadied her barefoot son at the top of a slide and held his hand as they walked through the sand earlier this week.

Natalie Portman didn't let her baby son Aleph out of sight on Saturday when she took him out while she grabbed lunch with another woman at Serafina Fabulous Pizza in New York City.
The Oscar winner kept her little one on her lap the entire meal, feeding him a few bites and waiting for him to fall asleep before she began eating her own meal, a salad.
An onlooker tells PEOPLE Portman was "doting on him the entire time."

For nine seasons, Top Chef fans have known Gail Simmons to be a thoughtful and incisive judge, a dessert enthusiast (she does host Top Chef: Just Desserts, after all) and a friendly, familiar face.
But for Simmons, being a TV personality was never in the cards. In fact, after graduating from college in Montreal, neither was a career in food – initially.
In her new book, Talking with My Mouth Full: My Life as a Professional Eater, Simmons shares "the story of my life – so far – and the mentors and the adventures I've had along the way," as she tells it in her warm, conversational voice.
