See James Blake's Tender 'My Willing Heart' Video With Natalie Portman

More

A very pregnant Natalie Portman stars in the stunning, black-and-white video for James Blake's "My Willing Heart," a track off the singer's 2016 LP The Colour of Anything.

In the Anna Rose Holmer-directed video, the Song to Song actress is shown submerged underwater alongside footage of Portman at rest and caressing her stomach; at one point, the camera captures the belly tremor and quake as the baby kicks from within.

The video was filmed in Los Angeles prior to Portman secretly giving birth to a daughter on February 22nd. Just days before, she announced she would miss this year's Academy Awards, where she was nominated for Best Actress for Jackie, due to her pregnancy.

Blake is currently working on new material following his mammoth 17-track The Colour of Anything, ahead of a run of European shows over the next few months that include festival stops and a few dates opening for Radiohead in Italy.
