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.

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.

Apparently you're never too young for a little ballet: Natalie Portman and 6-month old son Aleph attended the premiere of Benjamin Millepied's latest pieces at the Opera de Lyon in Lyon, France. The two came in "just after the curtain," a theatergoer tells us, "and stood in the aisle by the back row." Portman was holding her son and he was smiling and gazing at the stage. Afterward, the casually-dressed actress brought her son backstage to congratulate his father. – Peter Mikelbank
