Mike Huckabee has spoken out amidst the controversy surrounding comments he made about Natalie Portman's pregnancy.

The former Arkansas governor criticised the Black Swan actress during a radio interview earlier this week, saying that it was "not admirable" for she and fiancé Benjamin Millepied to be starting a family outside of wedlock.

However, speaking to Us Weekly, the politician insisted that his comments had been taken out of context and directed critics to his new book A Simple Government: Twelve Things We Really Need from Washington (And A Trillion That We Don't!) for more details on his political ideas.

"These people should read my book and they would know what I said instead of what some left-wing partisans are attempting to put forth," he explained.

" I do appreciate the attention to the book as it is sparking interest in it dramatically."
