Tuesday gossip roundup: Did Natalie Portman marry Benjamin Millepied?

Portman arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards.

Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied set off a wave of speculation that they’ve already tied the knot after donning what looked like wedding rings at this weekend’s Academy Awards, according to Us Weekly. Last year, Portman donned the sparkling engagement ring her “Black Swan” choreographer and co-star had given her, and this year that ring was flanked by a second, while Millepied wore a simple silver band on his wedding finger. Portman’s rep didn’t respond to requests for comment.

David and Victoria Beckham may be adjusting to having a fourth child with 7-month-old daughter Harper, but that doesn’t mean they’re necessarily done procreating. “We might have one more or two more, you never know,” David says, according to Hollyscoop. “We’re not thinking about it yet, but if it happens, great. We’re enjoying the kids as it is. It’s always a thought.” And Victoria, who has complained recently about being exhausted from work and having a newborn, is still up for more: “I’m not against having more children. I feel lucky having the kids I have and I guess I do like being pregnant,” she says. “But definitely not just yet.”

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are trying to keep their engagement quiet, but the senior citizens in their lives aren’t really helping. First, Timberlake’s grandmother spilled the beans about the singer’s proposal, and now Biel’s “New Year’s Eve” director, Garry Marshall, is gushing about their renewed romance. “We talk about it a lot. I hope it all works out. They are terrific kids,” Marshall tells Us Weekly. “I love them both. I’m happy for her.”

Uma Thurman is expecting a baby with financier Arpad Busson, her rep confirms to People magazine. And while the actress wasn’t necessarily ready to talk about her pregnancy, her friends were more than happy to. “Yes, Uma is pregnant,” a Thurman pal tells Life & Style. “She hasn’t announced it yet, but a lot of her friends were asking her, because they could tell the difference when they saw her at New York Fashion Week. She’s usually so skinny, but now she has the cutest little bump and a glow about her.” Thurman also has two children with ex-husband Ethan Hawke.

While Blue Ivy Carter is just 7 weeks old, some of the adults in her life already have a career picked out for her. “She is going to be an entertainer,” Gwyneth Paltrow, who is pals with parents Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z, tells Hollywood Life. “She just has this glow around her like her mother. She’s stunning. She has the most beautiful eyes.”

“Blade Runner” and “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” star Sean Young was arrested after trying to sneak into the post-Oscars Governer’s Ball Sunday night, according to TMZ. The actress, who recently appeared on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” made it into the party initially and hobnobbed with the likes of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie before being asked to leave, as she didn’t have a ticket for the event. Sources say she then tried to get back into the party, leading to an altercation with security personnel. Young was booked on a misdemeanor battery charge.
