Did Natalie Portman secretly tie the knot?

Something you'd like to share with us, Natalie Portman? Or are you letting your finger bling do the talking?

Portman and fiancé Benjamin Millepied have set tongues wagging after they were snapped sporting what appeared to be wedding rings at the 84th Annual Academy Awards.

Eagle-eyed viewers watching the telecast spotted that the couple, who got engaged in December 2010, had new bands on both of their ring fingers.

On her left hand, Black Swan star Portman, 30, wore a pair of new bands next to her diamond engagement ring, while Frenchman Millepied also sported a silver band on his ring finger.

So have the notoriously-private pair tied the knot on the sly? A rep for Portman has so far declined to comment on the marriage rumours.

'I can neither confirm nor deny ...'

But while the couple has yet to make any official comment, the jeweller who designed the rings appears to confirm that they have indeed tied the knot.

Jamie Wolf, one of Millepied's dancer friends, dished earlier today: "I designed the rings worn by Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman. They were made with recycled platinum and conflict-free diamonds," adding that the rings were, by definition, wedding bands.

Wolf, who also designed Portman's engagement sparkler - an antique diamond surrounded by certified conflict-free stones and made of recycled platinum - played it coy when asked to confirm the nuptials.

"I designed the rings worn by Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman," the designer told E! Online.

"The style of the rings by definition are wedding rings. However, we cannot confirm a marriage between Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied.

"I can neither confirm nor deny the marriage of Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied, as that is not information I am privy to. I designed rings for the couple and cannot attach meaning to those items."

Portman has largely been keeping a low profile since giving birth to the couple's son, Aleph, in June. A plan the actress had in motion while she was still pregnant.

"I hope I'll get to lie in bed and eat popcorn and watch TV for the rest of it," she told People.com. "Not always be out in public looking like a whale."

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Millepied? Certainly looks like it.

Props to them for keeping it on the down-low and eschewing a Kim Kardashian-style pomp and ceremony.

Speaking of KK, she's officially pulling the plug on all means of self-promotion.

Yeah, right.
