Multitasking mom! Natalie Portman goes shopping with daughter Amalia sitting snug on her front

Natalie Portman stocked up on organic produce in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

With all that heavy shopping, the 36-year-old Oscar winning actress needed all the help she could get to lift the bags. 

And eight month old daughter Amalia was only too happy to give her famous mom a hand lifting the groceries into the back of her SUV.

The Black Swan starlet stayed cool in the sweltering Los Angeles heat in a white t-shirt, blue jeans and flip flops.

She shielded her eyes with oversized sunglasses and her wavy brunette tresses were worn untied and with an off center part.

Her baby daughter Amalia was slung to the actress' chest in a Baby Bjorn. But the restricted movement didn't stop the eight month old trying to assist, as she reached for a bag as Portman deposited it in the back of the vehicle.
