Did Natalie Portman slyly reveal big news before more than 1 billion TV viewers?

On Sunday night’s 84th Academy Awards, the actress appeared to be wearing a wedding ring set as she clutched an envelope onstage.

And her French fiancé, Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millepied, was photographed with a band on his wedding finger.

Was there a secret wedding? That remains a mystery for now, as the Oscar winner’s rep hasn’t commented.

Portman, 30, announced in December 2010 that she and Millepied were quietly engaged and that they were expecting a child. PEOPLE confirmed last June that they had welcomed a son, Aleph.
