Yes, yet another A-lister is having a baby in 2013: Halle Berry! The Oscar-winning actress, 46, is pregnant with her second child -- a baby boy! -- and her first with fiance Olivier Martinez, a source confirms to Us Weekly, adding that she's "elated." According to TMZ, which first broke the news, the Call star is three months along. UPDATE: Berry's rep tells Us: "We can confirm that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are expecting a child."
The baby-to-be will join big sister Nahla, Berry's 5-year-old child with ex Gabriel Aubry. Us Weekly was first to break news of Berry's engagement to her hunky Dark Tide costar, 47, back in January 2011. Berry and the Frenchman confirmed their happy news a few months later, but have yet to set a wedding date.
Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show last fall, the Cloud Atlas star admitted that little Nahla was pining for a sibling -- but a sister.
"That's the thing. [My daughter is] asking me," Berry admitted. "Every night we pray to God, and she's so sweet. 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 have to keep praying on.' What do you say to her when she wants that and can't understand why God's taking so long, you know?"
And Berry added in the same interview that she's grateful that she became a mom past 40. "I'm a much better mother at 46, or 41 when I had her, than if I were 21 or 25. I was just a little baby, just trying to figure it out, trying to figure out who I was, let alone have the responsibility of trying to help another little soul develop and grow," the world famous star said. "I'm so glad I waited."
