For his latest music video, James Blake tapped Natalie Portman in all of her pregnant glory. The stunning black-and-white visual was filmed only days prior to the actress giving birth earlier this month. "My Willing Heart," directed by Anna Rose Holmer, sees Portman wading through a pool and lounging on a bed in what becomes a simple ode to maternity. In a particularly touching moment, around the 2-minute mark, you can even see the baby kicking. While the video is void of a complex narrative or an intense script, things Portman has tackled in her long career, it is a refreshing reminder that sometimes a simple role can be the most powerful.
