Baby on the Way for Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez!
Halle Berry is pregnant! A rep for the actress confirmed to People magazine that Berry, 46, is expecting a child with her fiancé, French actor Olivier Martinez, 47.
The rep also confirmed that Berry is three months pregnant and already knows that she is having a boy.
“I can confirm that Halle and Olivier are expecting a child,” the rep says.
“Halle is feeling great. It’s a very exciting time,” a source tells People. “This happened naturally—everyone is really happy.”
“She always talks about being a mom and she definitely wanted this for a long time,” a friend adds.
Berry is already mom to five-year-old daughter Nahla Ariela, from her previous relationship, with Gabriel Aubry. The couple made news recently for their nasty custody battle over Nahla.
After a more than a year of dating, the Oscar-winning actress and Martinez were engaged in January 2012.
Last fall, Berry admitted that her little girl was hoping for a sibling.
“Every night, we do our prayers,” the actress explained at the time. “She says, ‘God, please bring me a bunk bed and a baby sister.’ And I say, ‘I can do one of those things, I know for sure. The other one, we’ve got to keep praying on.’”
Looks like their prayers were answered!
Even with medical advancements in fertility, I was pretty shocked to hear that she managed to get pregnant–at 46 years old, that’s not so easy for many women. Berry joins a long list of other celebrities who became moms after 40, including Mariah Carey, Uma Thurman and Tina Fey.
