Halle Berry Expecting a Baby With French Actor Olivier Martinez
Berry and French Actor, Olivier Martinez, Are Expecting
Ooh-la-la. Halle Berry and her hunky French fiancé, Olivier Martinez, are expecting their first child together.
Berry, 46, has said that Nahla, her 5 year-old daughter with Canadian model, Gabriel Aubry, has long wanted a baby brother or sister and now, well, the little girl's wish is about to come true -- Berry's publicist has confirmed that she's pregnant with a boy.
"This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth," Berry says in an interview that aired this morning on CNN. "Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it's been a big surprise and the most wonderful."
The expectant parents met in 2010 on the set of "Dark Tide" on location in South Africa. They've been engaged since January of 2012 and will now welcome a boy to their fold. This will be the first child for Martinez, 47, who's perhaps best known for his role as the "other man" in the Diane Lane/Richard Gere movie "Unfaithful."
For years, Berry had been fighting for custody of Nahla, with Aubry - at the center of the debate was the fact that she wanted to move from Los Angeles to Martinez's native Paris. Things got so heated that Martinez and Aubry came to fisticuffs and restraining orders were issued to them both. Eventually, on November 29, 2012, came the announcement via Berry's lawyer that the ex lovers had reached a "amicable custody agreement," though details were not provided.
