Natalie Portman Is Ready for Motherhood

Natalie Portman has already conquered so much in her life, she feels like she's finally grown up and is ready to take on the next chapter of her life. And that chapter has a baby in it.

Portman, 28, says she's finally at a point in her life where she feels responsible enough to take on motherhood.

She said: "I feel like I'm coming into my womanhood, and I'm less afraid or maybe I'm just getting old. I think about having kids, but I think you can't plan for that sort of thing. It's not like you can work at it."

Portman explains that she started to feel maternal after playing Grace Cahill in her latest flick Brothers alongside Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal.

She explained: "It was such a fantastic opportunity because so many parts written for females my age are just like the cute, girlish love interest. To get to play a real woman who's really strong and a good mother was really a great opportunity.

"It was not that challenging to be mother-ish because I have the most maternal mom in the world. So I've had a role model for my entire life."

She seems like she would make a great mother! Which celebrity would you love to see get pregnant in 2010?
