Halle Berry is officially pregnant with her second child, a boy, at 46



It’s official, Halle Berry is knocked up at 46 with her second child. TMZ broke the news that Halle is expecting with her fiance, Olivier Martinez, and that she’s three months pregnant with a boy. Halle’s rep confirmed that her client is expecting a baby so it’s on. US also has the detail that Halle’s daughter Nahla, with her ex Gabriel Aubry, has been asking her for a sibling.

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?”

[From US Weekly]

That’s pretty surprising. I would have guessed that Halle and Olivier were on the outs before I would think that she was trying to get pregnant. (If she was trying.) Maybe this is why Halle and Olivier just took that Hawaiian vacation, to celebrate. I wonder if Halle went to see a fertility specialist, which seems likely given her age (although it happens), or if it just happened naturally for her. Congratulations to Halle and Olivier on their happy news! Hopefully they can avoid the drama that seems to follow Halle and her exes.

    Way to old to be having a baby. Way to old

    • em(original) says:

      They have many resources, and if they’re happy, more power to them.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      Agreed…plus there is the crazee factor to consider. No just no!

      • Amanda says:

        Omg its a baby, a happy occasion come on! Who cares if she is a little older plenty of women have babies at an older age these days. People here are so mean and bitter about halle. I get that she isnt the most likeable character in the world. But its like she is being demonized on this site. Its way, way over the top.

    • Erinn says:

      *too

      And really, I don’t think she, or anyone else, needs your permission on whether they are allowed to conceive.

      • Spooks says:

        I don’t think she needs permission, but having a baby at that age is quite dangerous.

      • jaye says:

        @Spooks…women her age have healthy pregnancies and babies all the time. Of course the risk factor goes up as you get older, but I think “quite dangerous” is an overstatement.

      • K-MAC says:

        totally agree with @erinn

    • Nev says:

      Word. Wow.

      Congrats!!!!!

    • Izzy says:

      Excuse me, but who the hell are you to decide if she’s too old? She’s not.

      She may not be able to provide the most stable home environment, given her dramarama… but that’s another thing entirely.

      Ageist much?

      • lkaye says:

        considering the average age of menopause is 51, she is too old. she will be 64 when her kid graduates high school. is that fair to a child to have a baby and you are closer to a grandma’s age?

      • Emily says:

        @ Ikaye – if the average age of menopause is 51, she still has 5 good baby-making years in her.
        Or are you suppose to ‘prepare’ for menopause ten years prior?????

      • ya says:

        I don’t necessarily think 64 is too old to have a kid be graduating high school… especially considering that people are living active lives much later now.

      • lkaye says:

        Emily, your body actually does start to prepare itself for menopause.

      • dorothy says:

        Way to old for me, but she has resources to pay for nannies, etc.

      • Spooks says:

        I don’t think she is too old to RAISE the baby, but her pregnancy is a high risk one. Women over 45 have about a 14 in 1,000 chance of having a baby with Down Syndrome. Women who get pregnant later in life are also significantly more likely to miscarry or have a stillbirth than those who do so earlier.

      • DGO says:

        At age 46, she’s already been going through perimenopause, which means her hormones are all over the place, and her risk for birth defects are much higher than a younger mother. Add to that the fact that her sister has a child with Down Syndrome, and that Halle had trouble conceiving Nahla and had to resort to IVF, and I think it’s safe to say this is a high risk pregnancy. I’m betting she used some of the eggs she had frozen when she was struggling to conceive Nahla.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        So she’s “too old” because her child may or may not be born with a birth defect.

        I’m sure Halle’s doctor informed her of the risks involved and at the end of the day it is HER choice. It’s ok to have an opinion-why not phrase it like Dorothy did: “It’s way too old FOR ME” instead of stating it like it’s empirical fact.

      • Layale says:

        I’ve also read the older the man is the more chance of a birth defect. So, I am sure her doctor told her the risks. I don’t personally like her, but I wish her a healthy pregnancy and baby. I also agree she has resources, so that does help.

      • linlin says:

        To all of those people stating how her age is a problem because the chances that her child will have down syndrom are higher: AND? Did you ever consider that maybe she doesn’t care that much? Children with Down Syndrom can be healthy & happy too! Of course they are usually more time consuming for parents and often will not be able to work for a living, so I can see how a child with Donw Syndrom would be a problem for many families- but she does have the ressources and maybe would be just as ahappy with a child with down syndrom than with one without.

      • Sabrine says:

        I’m sure Halle had every kind of high tech medical test imaginable to determine the health of the fetus. After it was determined the baby was healthy, they announced it to the public.

        Why do people say there will be a custody battle down the road? Not necessarily. She’s getting along with Aubry now and in the process has learned something. I just wish her well and hope the baby is healthy.

    • OutstandingWorldCitizen says:

      Look, I know I’m in the minority here. I mean we have all been on HB’s case for her ridiculous treatment of Gabriel but as a woman heading toward a certain age THEY CAN STILL HAVE A HEALTHY BABY. They also have the resources as most of you have said.

      I just hope there is NO MORE drama.

      I wish them luck. That’s it. Nuff said.

    • Emily says:

      People somehow still feel pregnant women’s bodies are public property and can be humiliated, shamed and judged as much as they want. Don’t go near the microwave, don’t ever drink a drop of alcohol, don’t weigh too much or too little, don’t dye your hair, don’t ever be within 50km of cigarette smoke.

      Yet somehow there are millions of orphans in the world. No one gives a SHIT what happens once the kids are born yet they feel it is their right to judge BEFORE it is born? Piss off!

      • WTF says:

        ^ What she said!!

      • Alana Fajina says:

        Heck yeah Emily!!! I agree 100%

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @DGO, I’m guessing she had CVS in order to determine whether the baby has downs etc. how else would they know the sex of the baby so early?

      • Jenny says:

        Not saying she is too old, my dad was nearly 50 when I was born, but there is something to be said for being able to live to see your kids graduate from college, get married, meet your grand kids. I know life to a certain age is not guaranteed, but having kids later means less chance for all that.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        PREACH, Emily. Everything you said x 1,000,000

        Jenny-I totally hear ya and respect what you’re saying but we know what the “ideal” is-it doesn’t always pan out that way for everyone ya know? At the end of the day, it’s their choice.

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        Exactly! Thank you!

      • beanie says:

        Absolutely, Emily! I agree with 1000%.

      • Seagulls says:

        @Morticians: there are a number of new blood tests used to screen for various defects that test fetal DNA; they can reveal sex really early (relative to the 20 week scan).

    • Amy says:

      Of course she doesn’t.

      But they are celebrities, and as such we can speculate about their home life and have (negative) opinions about them and their choices. It’s called Celebitchy, not Celeb-onlysaynice,supportivethings.

    • pf says:

      I don’t think she’s too old given the fact we are not her doctor. I know a woman who just turned 57 years old, and like clockwork, she still gets her period on a monthly basis like she always has, no slowing down or anything with no significant health problems. Of course she would throw herself down the stairs if she ever got pregnant. But just because a woman turns 40 doesn’t mean it’s over. We’re all different. But given the fact we know Halle and Gabriel have the crazy factor that in itself is a reason not to have a kid. So age has nothing to do with it, if you’re physically healthy and love life, you can be a well-functioning person until your 80s. But Halle’s mental health is something I worry about.

      • SageM says:

        My mother had me at 37, in the days when women mostly had kids at 20 to 25. She was 15 years older than the rest of my friends mothers. I have to say it was not easy in any way. Her view of the world and opinions were from a different generation, and I was never allowed to do anything my friends did. The generational gap really showed, and I resent her for not trying to understand how the girls of my generation were being brought up, but instead insisted in doing things like they were done 20 years earlier. I couldn’t get away fast enough, dropped out of high school and moved out as soon as I was 18. Thank goodness I have had a couple of lucky breaks and have done very well in life, but my life started when I left my mother.

      • Liberty says:

        I don’t know if I am correct, but I thought I read she was diabetic? I would assume that would create some concerns, but obviously she can afford great medical care and doesn’t have to work during the pregnancy.

    • Mazunte says:

      No, she is not. This pregnancy will require a lot more careful surveillance, of course, but human beings (especially women) are living longer and with a much better life quality until the end of their lives. My father is in his middle 70s and he still works full time because he wants to. A woman of her age still has the energy to raise a child and, if nothing bad happens, enough life left to follow her kid’s growth and adulthood.

      Okay, she won’t be able to follow her grandchildren. But, believing in an ideal family has always been an utopia since man appeared on Earth. There are wars who kill parents, mommies and daddies who abandon their children or, worse, abuse them emotionally and/or physically.

      It seems pretty ideal to me that a woman and a man try to do their best to be good parents regardless of how much time they have.

    • Lukie says:

      Why is that too old?
      My dad was 45 when I was born. I am 40. When I was a teenager, a few of my friends with much, much younger fathers died, nbut at the age of 85, my dad is still here.

      Halle is healthy, albeit crazy. She could die in a year, she could live to be 100. She has money and eats super healthy and probably has fantastic health insurance. I think believing she is too old in this day and age is an antiquated way of thinking…

    • Rosalind says:

      I couldn’t have a baby in my 40′s, especially since my 2 teenagers run me ragged. But it does happen. My Great-Grandma had my Great Aunt when she was 50! And my Aunt L is 4 years younger then my Mom. Strange, I know, but Grandma lived into her 90′s and knew her Grandchildren, her Great Grandchildren, even her Great Great Grandchildren! So even though I can’t stand Halle Berry I do think people shouldn’t be so judgemental about her age.

      • Riff says:

        Thanks, Rosalind, I am 48 and I had my third son one year ago, after 14 years from the second one. It just happened.
        This discussion was making me nervous. I have to say this child is a precious gift for me and my husband. I lost 10 years during my pregnancy, I think all those hormones did stop my biological clock. And I am a far better mother now, more patient and calm, less focused on my career because I already achieved my professional goals.
        This is my personal experience, of course. Btw my grandma had her third daugther at 46, as well, and she had a long and happy life.

      • Birdix says:

        What a happy story Riff, it’s nice to hear that perspective. :)

      • Rosalind says:

        No problem Riff, just had to throw my 2 cents in there since I knew my Great-Gran very well. L was a definitely a “surprise” but in no way was she not adored, loved, and wanted. I hate the “but she’s over 40″ label. It’s ridiculous, especially like you said with many women wanting to be secure in certain areas of their lives first. Men have children we’ll into their 40”s and beyond and it’s rare to hear the same criticism.
        Also, again stating before I get jumped…..I am in no way a Halle Berry fan.

      • Rosalind says:

        Well. Not we’ll. Thank you auto-correct.

    • Anonny says:

      Kim, first of all, it’s “too,” not “to.”

      Second, STFU. Srsly.

    • Lishka says:

      I dunno. I think that’s pretty Frikken old! When the kid is 18 she will be in her mid 60′s. my mother is 63 and is showing her age. My mum is also a grandma to 7 kids! So yeah…lol

    • Joanna says:

      People die every day in car accidents, murders, etc. long before 80 years of age. What about their kids, should they have skipped having kids? oh,no, wait, that’s life, you never know how long someone is going to live. who cares if the parents are on the old side? they can’t take care of them? are you gonna tell a 30yr old paralyzed woman she can’t have a baby? who are you to decide who can and can’t have a baby? my mom is 70 and way more active than many people in their 30s. quit being ageist.

    • Nonan says:

      totally agree.

    • It’s not her age I have a problem with, it’s her personality. Crazy people shouldn’t be allowed to breed.

    • Loulou says:

      If she gave the scoop to TMZ, her favourite media mouthpiece, you know already it’s not about the baby…

    • SamiHami says:

      What a dumb comment. My husband’s mother was 39, 42 and 45 for her pregnancies. She gave birth to three healthy boys. My husband (the oldest) will be 55 in a few days. His mother? Still alive.

      Yes, some risk factors goes up when you conceive at a later age, but that doesn’t automatically mean that you are going to have problems. It just means that the pregnancy needs to be monitored more closely.

      Now, my only objection to this pregnancy (not that it counts…) is that she is nuts and should not be procreating any more, especially with that violent SOB. That kid is going to inherit some seriously bad mojo from those two.

    • Janet says:

      Forget her age, what about her CRAZY mind. She is such a manipulative psycho….that POOR CHILD.

    • HoustonGrl says:

      That’s what people used to say to women who had kids at 35. I think times are changing. That said, better her than me!

      • Seagulls says:

        I’m not going to agree with Kim’s rather broad societal statement, especially in regards to one particular person, but there is a vast gulf between the eggs and health of a 35 year old and a 46 year old. No shortly upcoming medical or technological innovation is going to change that for the vast majority of women. Obviously, individual cases will vary.

    • Ceeber says:

      My mother-in-law had my husband at 45. My grandma had my dad at 44. WAY too old?? Really?? Seems like a bizarre reaction.

      • Seagulls says:

        Just out of curiosity, had they had children previously? From what I’ve read, having children when you’re younger sort of primes your body to be able to do it more easily later.

    • Tori says:

      She is so beautiful !! and who cares if shes 46 having a baby .. welcome to 2013 where people are living passed 100 , if you feel young and able to take care of a baby at 46 then more power to you. I know that I am waiting as long as possible to have a child.

    • Really? says:

      Kim, you’re entitled “to” your opinion, but i just can’t resist:

      It’s “way TOO old,” not “way TO old.”

      “To” is a preposition, “too” is an adjective.

      If you’re going TO say something that’s not TOO nice, at least have know how TO say it correctly.

  2. Pixie says:

    Please. Another child for her to act crazy over when things with Olivier end.

    • annabelle says:

      Exactly.
      I don’t give a $hit about her age or her ability or the possibility of birth defects and complications. How is that the take away here?

      I give a $hit that she is a crappy co-parent, she is with a man who clearly has some anger issues and she herself uses her current child as an emotional pawn in her narcissistic games.

      Ugh. This woman is just vile.

      • Vera says:

        I’m more concerned about the drama that goes down with Halle than concerns about her having a baby at 46. She will have the best health care and support available, but the craziness…

      • RocketMerry says:

        @Pixie and @Annabelle: nailed it.
        That child is in for a daily-cray ride.
        Let’s hope someone in these children’s life has a bit of sense.

      • Janet says:

        100% AGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT.

    • stinky says:

      thisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthis

      seriously.

    • Pandy says:

      Agree – I could care less that she’s a medical marvel or whatever. She has serious issues and you know this won’t end well. I guess it’s good for gossip in a sad way …

    • Malak says:

      I would agree. He is a ladies man.
      Good luck to her.

  3. gloaming says:

    Surprising news.

  4. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    Forget the short temper and the violent urges – she is procreating with a man who tucks his shirts into his athletic shorts.

    *sigh* Oh Halle.

  5. Alexis says:

    No. Just, no.

    • Janet says:

      Who are you to tell her no? She doesn’t need your permission to have another child.

      • annabelle says:

        Why are people being harassed for having an opinion HERE???

      • drdoolittling says:

        And who are you to try and tell other people what to post? She is a HORRIBLE human being who killed someone with her car and had her thug of a boyfriend beat the crap out of her ex because she didn’t get her way.

        That poor poor child. And poor poor nahla.

    • beanie says:

      Hallie received three years probation and fine for leaving the scene of an automobile accident. You need to check things before you type and slander someone by saying they killed someone. That is vile.

      • beatrice sparkplug says:

        Left the scene 3 times. That’s serial behavior.

      • beanie says:

        You need to learn how to read. She did not leave the scene of accidents 3 times. She had three accidents between 1997 and 2007. She left the scene of the accident of one accident. Even if you what you said had any truth to it, serial behavior and calling someone a killer are two radically different things. Read about it here if you care to.

  6. JL says:

    The drama those two have continually is more of a concern for me than the age.

    Good for her if she can have a healthy child at that age.

  7. ParisPucker says:

    she is still smokin’ even if she cray

  8. Nessa says:

    Usually you can’t really tell what the gender is until 18-20 weeks?? If she is only just out of the first trimester, how do they know?

    • Emily says:

      With new technology you can tell at 12 weeks.

    • Erinn says:

      I think there are tests for high-risk pregnancy that can tell sooner. Going by her age, it’s probably a high risk pregnancy, and they’ve done some checking to see if there are issues with the fetus. I think those tests can determine it at around 10 or 12 weeks.

    • AmyR says:

      It’s possible. Especially if it’s a boy, the *ahem* anatomy can be determined earlier. I have a friend who found out at 13 weeks she was having a boy. (It helped in my friend’s case that her little guy is apparently well endowed for a toddler! It’s become a joke.)

    • chi says:

      The mother’s blood carries some cells from the fetus. Genetic testing. It’ a fairly new technology, but very useful, because it’s not invasive (for the baby). Or it was sex-selected IVF. As for the ultrasound, no matter how good the technology is, it’s never 100% at 12 weeks, because at that stage girls and boys still can look perfectly alike from the outside.

    • Belle says:

      You can tell earlier, even through ultrasound. Most doctors like to wait for the (apprx) 20 week mark since that is when they want to do an ultrasound to check measurements, etc., and they feel more accurate with their prediction of the baby’s sex. A good ultrasound tech or doctor can tell much earlier though (12-13 weeks) as long as they get a good view/angle.

      Oh, and I found out with my second child (11 years ago) through ultrasound at 13 weeks that ‘it’ was a girl, so not just for boys… early ultrasound pics of a baby girl’s baby bits usually show 3 lines. ;)

      I’m guessing that Halle probably had an amnio, or some other testing though, as is usually recommended for women over a certain age.

    • JenD says:

      There’s a blood test to check for chromosomal abnormalities that is offered at 8-10 weeks, and it can tell you the gender of the baby. We had it done so we knew the gender in the first trimester.

    • trillian says:

      I am pretty sure that at her age she had an amniocentesis. I would.

    • Itsa Reallyme says:

      With my last one, I had an u/s at 13 weeks and could CLEARLY see he was a boy. The new technology is fantastic.

      • Isa says:

        Wow I didn’t know so many people found out that early! When I went in for my 13 week appointment the dr did an ultrasound to check my due date. He told me I was really 15 weeks and that the baby was a boy. However when he was born he spent some time in the NICU and they said his first due date was correct. I never really knew what was right.

    • Feebee says:

      Yep it’s a CVS test done usually between 9-11 weeks, an amnio is done later, in second trimester. The CVS is recommended for women over the age of 35. As it’s a chromosome test, the gender is identified in the last pair.

      That is if it was a regular conception as opposed to IVF, when I think the gender can be selected?

      • Sarah says:

        ^^ this is why I’m guessing she already knows

        ETA: the CVS. I think even she’s not crazy enough for ivf gender selection

    • Stephers says:

      Assuming she utilized a fertility treatment such as IVF (and I am not saying she did, just assuming based on her age) she may have done PGD (pre-implantation genetic diagnosis) on the fertilized eggs prior to transfer. If they transferred only male fertilized eggs and she became pregnant it is safe to say she will be having a boy! I had PGD done and knew, for obvious reasons, that I was having a boy :)

    • Anonny says:

      Take it from someone who is 46 and 38 weeks pregnant, you can opt for a CVS test (chorionic villi sampling) as early as 10-11 weeks and get the preliminary results, including gender, within 72 hours. No ultrasound guessing; it’s either XX or XY.

      As for those who think it’s too old, can I come into your house and judge you, your lifestyle, the way you live, the choices you make, the way you’ve raised your kids, etc.?

      No? THEN EFF OFF.

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        Congrats annony.

        A friend of mine became pregnant with her first at 47. No intervention whatsoever. In fact she never had an amnio either (I didn’t – my first pregnancy was at 39, but I didn’t want to risk a miscarriage that an amnio can cause).

  9. Annie says:

    Best idea ever. That child is coming into a house of drama and violence, really old parents.

    I seriously don’t get people. A child doesn’t fix a marriage/relationship/life.

    • Amy says:

      I’m with you!

      Everyone’s jumping on the critics in this thread, but what she and Olivier can provide is the farthest thing from a healthy environment for a baby/child.

      Sure she can provide financially for the children, and she’s undoubtedly a loving mother. That’s a lot more than innumerable other babies have. But Olivier Martinez is a ticking time bomb…who dresses like the lost member of Color Me Badd.

      Hopefully she’ll grow up (at *smh* 50) and gain some perspective. And if Olivier ever threatens her or the children, I hope she shows him the door.

      • Annie says:

        Right? It’s just absolutely ridiculous. The father she’s giving to that kid. Like she wasn’t bad enough on her own, she has to get pregnant with his spawn, because they’re such a stable happy couple that can totally welcome a baby to a healthy home. Babies don’t fix things, and I bet Olivier is just pissed that he didn’t get to take Nala away from her father. So here’s your own baby, Olivier.

        Just because you can do things doesn’t mean you SHOULD. Just because you have the money to get fertility treatments doesn’t mean it’s a terrific idea to go at it at 46 years old and give birth at 47 to please your partner, who is a raging violent alcoholic asshole. Those treatments are expensive as hell, OF COURSE doctors are going to be all “Sure! Go for it!” There’s risks and they’re always especially optimistic when it comes to people spending their money. Like it or not, women have their perfect age for that stuff. Almost 50 is far from that. There’s women who still have their periods at 50+. That doesn’t mean they should totally get pregnant. Think where you will be when your child is in their 30′s.

        But putting all of that aside for a minute, choosing to give a violent, ragey father to your future child? Absolutely horrible. As if she’s not ruining the childhood of her one daughter already, please, by all means bring another unhappy child to your family.

        Some breeders are 100% selfish individuals. Reminds me of my sister’s friend who keeps losing baby after baby. The doctor is begging her to give her uterus a break because it’s very dangerous for her BUT NO, she wants a second kid, damnit! Nevermind the first one who’s always there watching mommy bleed and be hospitalized every year.

    • Lisa says:

      I agree wholeheartedly!!! There are scumbag at work impregnating their gf’s/ wives and all I can think is, ‘poor child doesn’t deserve to be born into those messes….’

    • hazeldazel says:

      yeah best idea evar! have a baby with a rageholic baby daddy, and dramarama mama whose pregnancy will be at risk not only because she’s pretty old for a pregnancy but also because she’s had numerous complications with her diabetes. Way to think ahead!

      I sincerely wish a healthy pregnancy a healthy baby for her, but not the wisest decision. Wouldn’t be the first time someone tried to fix a relationship with a baby.

        Kitten, how so? Please explain. Long day and I definitely don’t want to read a post on Brandi :P

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Mira-we collectively determined there is a new “age”–it’s called “alien”. Ok so maybe I decided that on my own but Tiff and a couple other posters made some great observations about how injections/ps procedures used to make women look “younger” often just make them look strange in the sense that their age is almost indeterminable. Like they could be 36,45 or 57…who knows? Halle might have had work done but if she did, it’s amazing because she just looks youthful but not scary and strange. In short: BITCH. ;)

      • Mira says:

        Kitten, thanks for your post. Well, moderation is the key to almost everything in life including injections/ps. Hollywood is an exception to this like most institutions in the world, unfortunately. Like you said Halle hasn’t gone overboard with anything plastic. I mean, I can’t even make out if she has tried botox or whatever. She looks fine, amazing rather. I can only tell or spot plastic on reality tv stars. I don’t know why but these people binge on plastic and they look downright scary. I guess they are the most insecure people on the hollywood food-chain. The pecking order is stage actors >> film actors >> tv actors >> reality tv stars.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        She’s batshit crazy, but man she is gorgeous.

        Kitten is so right in that she is the polar opposite of all those fake women and she looks fabulous. This is the way to age-at least on the outside.

        Her insides are a whole other topic. Poor baby, being born to these two lousy, crazy people.

  12. oh snap! says:

    she probably genetically selected the sex so she knew from the beginning. this is very possible nowadays. If she did IVF with Nahla, most likely she froze some eggs at that time or even prior. it would be well advised for any woman with the means and no prince charming in sight to put some eggs on ice if between the ages of 34 and 40.

    • F5 says:

      Menu baby.
      Wish her well.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Oh Snap! …

      (rolls eyes) If Halle selected the sex of her baby (man, people are really reaching on this thread) why in the world would she choose a boy when it states above that Nahla desperately wanted a little sister?

      The more logical scenario is that Halle’s doctor performed a test to determine if the fetus had down syndrome and the text reviewed the child’s sex.

  13. Elizabeth says:

      And that’s WHY it is called a blessing.

      Congrats Halle! Having a child IS a blessing.

      I bet they are over the MOON about bringing a child into the world.

      Nahla is about to have a sibling. Halle is growing her family. And now you can understand why Martinez is going to be protective about his lady.

      Something about very beautiful women with talent having babies on their own terms brings out the envy and jealousy in OTHER women!

    Not buying this for one sec. First, she is a serious diabetic which makes any pregnancy high risk. Second, ask any reproductive endocrinologist the likelihood of a safe and healthy pregnancy for a 46 yr old diabetic?
    Only possible explanation is that she is going the pillow/beyonce route.

      Ooohhhh, I wonder if this is a part of her long game to win the battle to move?

      • jaye says:

        I’m not sure I get your logic. How would her having a baby w/OM affect the courts decision that she can’t move to France? As far as I can tell, that wouldn’t seem to make a difference.

      • Lucinda says:

        I could see her thinking that. Her history certainly shows logic is not always a part of their thought-process. I for one am not happy for them. I weep for this child. Seriously.

      • annabelle says:

        @Jaye *sorry, I can’t reply to you directly under your post.

        Essentially I think she could have her child in France, giving it dual citizenship. Giving her and even better and more far reaching reason other than “my boyfriend lives there.” I think it would give her more sway with the courts.

      • Girlattorney says:

        She doesn’t have to have the baby in France in order for it to have dual citizenship. I should know — I’m American with a French husband, and 3 of our kids were born in America, 2 of them in LA. All you have to do is trot down to the nearest French consulate (which is in Westwood in LA) with the proper paperwork (essentially, that Olivier is the father and that he is a French citizen) and you can get the baby its citizenship and French passport very easily and quickly. Our fourth child together was born in France, and doing the same thing in reverse (getting her U.S. citizenship) was, in comparison, H*LL.

      • msw says:

        @annabelle, that’s not how citizenship works. Their kid will be eligible for French citizenship no matter where she gives birth due to her father’s citizenship, cause that’s how France works. Only four countries in the world give citizenship solely because a person was born there, the US being one of them. It’s a common misconception a lot of US citizens have about global citizenship politics because we’re used to it.

  29. Faye says:

    There’s a small part of me that hopes she doesn’t use this as an excuse to take Nahla to France – I can see her telling a judge she has to go to France so Olivier’s family can spend time with the baby, and of course she shouldn’t be separated from Nahla, right?

    Also, while obviously she can do what she wants, it seems to me that having another kid when you haven’t learned to co-parent your first one like a normal person is a very, very Bad Idea. Oh, and apparently privacy from the media isn’t a concern when it’s time to announce your pregnancy, including the child’s gender, hmmm? And it’s not as if the press suspected, even.

  30. gg says:

    Oh great, couldn’t happen to a nicer, more stable person. I bet Gabriel is just thrilled he’s connected to Mr. Rage for the rest of his life.

    • skuddles says:

      ITA gg.

      I can’t help but think this is just one more play on Berry’s part to persuade the courts to let her move to France.

      So how long do you figure before things disintegrate between her and Martinez and she’s whining to the world that he’s a racist, violent, lying POS?

  31. Hipocricy says:

    I don’t agree with the ambient negativity concerning this pregnancy.

    So far, Nhala seems like a relatively normal and beautiful child and this is thanks to BOTH of her parents who raise her well despite the circumstances.

    Just for her to have a sibling to share her emotions with would be a good thing. Hopefuly, that new baby will give more balance and peace in this family unit.

    As for Olivier, it will be his first child…you never know how people turn when they have their children. He can even feel what it is to be deprived of his own child and be more sympathetic towards Aubry.

    Anyway, that child will be Nhala’s sibling and will obliged all three adults to behave with more civility because wether they like it or not, they will be all part of the same extended family through both those children….Imagine Aubry playing with both children at some point because brother and sister would probably want to be together.

    And maybe, some day, Aubry will too create another family with possibly another child too.

    • Sarcasmo says:

      The sentiment in your 5th paragraph is lovely, but (speaking from experience) please don’t hold your breath.

      Adults often behave worse than children in these types of situations, and Heaven help the children involved.

      • Hipocricy says:

        Maybe but one thing i am nearly sure of, Nhala will be elated to have a sibling to be with and whatever wrong, mistakes adults do, it’s always better to have someone else to share tears, happiness, fears, hopes and dreams…

        She will have a baby bro to be with, someone who may become the closest person to her, someone who may grow the more protective figure she will ever have when parents fail and i know how much more happy it can turn a single child to not be alone anymore.

        After peace and good relations between parents (which i know isn’t set yet between Aubry and Berry), that’s the second more important gift she could give to her daughter, a companion to play with, a future protective figure, a best friend, a confident.

        Just for that reason alone, i say congrats for that pregnancy.

      • Sarcasmo says:

        I hope you’re right, but that kid is going to be 5 or 6 years younger than Nahla, and just because they’re siblings doesn’t mean they’ll mesh.

        (Spoken as the mother of four [and an "only" myself], two of which are 3-and-a-half years apart. So I know of what I speak. Oil and water doesn’t even begin to cover it.)

    • Emily says:

      I don’t think you can really comment on how ‘normal’ a stranger’s child ‘seems’. It is nothing more than wild speculation.
      She could be a tantruming terror.

      • Hipocricy says:

        Well so far nothing suggests that and everything point to her being well adjust and at ease with both her father and a ‘step father’ figure.

        And it’s not like she isn’t under the radar. She doesn’t seems showing stress and tantrums (a la Suri) even when under the flashes.

        Besides, i am sure, with all the hopla surrounding her parents case, we would have heard about her emotionals problems by either the Court, either one of the parents who would have used that against the other.

        She seems a well adjust child to me, who seems at ease with ALL 3 adults, which in itself is very telling in the fact that at least ALL three do something right with her, making sure that she doesn’t feel any animosity towards anyone of them even if between them, its another story.

    • lucy2 says:

      I hope you’re right, it would be nice to see them all mature and stop all the drama. Unfortunately I don’t think that’s very likely.

      I won’t be a bit surprised if in a few years Halle is going through a similar custody thing with Olivier.

    • Lauren says:

      We see Nahla looking like a lovely, adorable child in photos – *in spite* of her parents, not because of them. Multiple studies have shown that the amount of strife and parental discord children are exposed to when there parents separate is damaging. Halle is taking that to extremes.

  32. Tiffany27 says:

    A baby is a blessing so congratulations, but why bring another soul into your world of crazy?
    You’re in a custody battle with your first baby daddy and your current baby daddy seems to have temper issues and is willing to beat someone’s a** on sight. How is this any different from an episode of Maury?

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      Bingo.

    • dorothy says:

      Exactly.

    • BeachBell says:

      Things may turn out OK. You just never know.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah…I echo this sentiment. I don’t jump on the “Halle is an evil witch!!” train (I think she has issues but I don’t think she’s straight-up evil) or the “Olivier is a rageaholic!” train (I probably would have FUCKED some paparazzi up if I was in his situation) but there is WITHOUT QUESTION a lot of instability there. That being said, this is Olivier’s first child correct? Maybe having a little one will help him be more….centered?

      Also re: the paparazzi incident: I have to add that I don’t have kids-and I understand the perspective of peoples’ criticism of Olivier’s behavior around Nahla. He should be setting a better example. I wonder if he knew Halle was preggo at the time and was just being overly protective too? Not defending him-just trying to be objective….

      • Amanda says:

        was oliver known as as “unstable” prior to his rs with halle. I have only heard his ex’es like kylie minogue speak well of him I think the image people have is a bit over the top. I think he has come into a really unfortunate situation and admittely dealt with it at times badly. But its not like he is notorious for running around getting into fights before Halle, And what he did with the paps wasnt anything worse then what Chris Martin or Ben Affleck i have seen so many people make excuses for Ben. I actually think Gabe and Halle has the unhealthy dynamic here and Oliver found himself in the middle of it and for a long time kept his cool until finally one day he exploded. A lot of pressure when you come into such an ugly divorce situation.

      • Liv says:

        What?! He beat the shit out of Aubry, that’s so not okay! Especially when one was a professional boxer. He should know better! Seriously, I don’t care what’s going on between Halle and Gabriel, but this was Martinez fault.

      • Loira says:

        Halle and Gabriel seemed to be getting along unil she started drama and wanting to leave for France (after Martinez came into the picture)

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Amanda-ITA completely. That’s another reason why I reserve judgement. I never heard of him having rage issues prior to the incident with Gabe. I mean, that was f*cked but hell, I’m from Boston-it’s not unusual to see dudes get heated over a girl and resort to fists (probably not unusual to see anywhere really). I think that is VERY different than someone who has displayed consistent temper/rage issues like a Chris Brown or a Mel Gibson for instance-blowing up and becoming verbally/physically abusive at the drop of a hat. I mean, maybe he does–I just don’t think you can make that determination based on those two incidents. He should have known better than to react like that in front of a child but I think the paps were completely at fault in that incident.

        @Liv-I wouldn’t wanna date a dude that does shit like that but I have male friends that have come to blows over stuff like that. They’re not terrible people and I wouldn’t say they have”rage” issues. I hope you don’t think I’m defending him-I swear I’m not trying to-I’m just trying to apply my own experiences to what I’ve seen with Martinez. Maybe he is a ragey asshole-I’m just not 100% convinced. Regardless, ITA that it’s not a stable/idea situation to raise a child.

      • Liv says:

        I know what you mean, my brother got involved in a fight a couple of times too. But look at the photos of Aubry after the fight – I doubt that your friends or my brother looked like that after it. Martinez has skills and he used them. I think they wanted to teach Aubry a lesson, which I find disgusting. Plus he’s 47! He’s not getting wiser with age, that’s for sure ;-)

      • bluecalling says:

        I started taking a Thai boxing class. In LITERALLY 3 seconds you can: break someone’s face, ribs and knee. I really mean 3 seconds. And yes they can be taller than you, just punch up. So you don’t have to be a rage monster. You have to be provoked to protect yourself and its pretty much done.

        So sorry to all the Gabe apologists.

      • jwoolman says:

        Blue- yes, if trained you can do a lot if damage in 3 seconds. Hope the class instructor explained how much time you can spend in jail or prison for it anyway, even if you claim you’re defending yourself. Gabriel didn’t have a gun, wasn’t robbing anybody, didn’t have any physical evidence of hitting anybody or even trying to block anybody. He had injuries consistent with being punched and kicked multiple times. He had just dropped off his daughter to spend a holiday with her mother. Olivier would be in jail if this had happened on the street with proper witnesses or even without them. There is nothing Gabriel could have said that would justify such an attack. My guess is that Halle almost lost custody over all this, because judges aren’t stupid. That’s why she has been relatively quiet since. Who knows? Maybe that’s why she tried to conceive a child soon after. Maybe she’s figuring Olivier won’t be so attached as Gabriel is and she will have full control over this one. I would be surprised if she’s angling to go to France, though. She doesn’t know French and this is a high risk pregnancy because of her Type 1 diabetes and to some extent her age (she looks otherwise quite physically healthy).

    If Olivier hasn’t learnt a single thing observing the Gabriel drama, well…Poor him.

  36. TG says:

    I wouldn’t think a court would allow her to move her first child to France just because she has a second child. After all she has to consider her first child’s needs and not just the second one and a father shouldn’t be punished just because the mother decides to start a second family. Why does she get to move wherever she wants? What if Gabriel had more kids and lived eitehr in LA or elsewhere? Would he get to move his first child whereever he wants? Doubt it.

  37. andrea says:

    I guess this explains why she kept a shirt in her hand in front of her stomach much of the time they were getting pap’d on the beach a few days ago (this was in the half open black cover-up). I thought it was odd that she would keep it there even when she was trying to get up off the sand. Well, mazel tov!

  38. Loulou says:

    Anything to rehabilitate her image. The woman is unfit and can’t chose a proper mate. What will Martinez show the child? To scrap?

  39. Relli says:

    Oh OK good luck with that.

    Also did anybody read Lainey’s post on this? Since when did Gabriel have a difficult time getting over Halle? If my gossip memory serves me right he was the first to walk away from the relationship… I just didn’t understand the inclusion of that on her post.

  40. Leek says:

    For someone who so fiercely protects her privacy it is a bit surprising to let the world know she’s pregnant with a boy at three months. That’s just a lot of info to share and it will be like flypaper to the paps. Why?? She doesn’t make any sense. At all.

  41. Bridget says:

    I’m pretty surprised, not only because she’s 46 (which is really up there for pregnancy) but she had a really difficult time getting pregnant with Nahla. She’s talked about how it took them a good couple of years to get pregnant, so even with reproductive science I’m kind of shocked.

      Like with LiLo, the drama will go on and on.
      Poor Nahla and poor future baby, at least they will have money, and Nahla has her own father who seems to be less crazy than OM. I hope he can manage the new situation well.

    • Polk8dot says:

      I agree that Olivier will definitely want to raise his child in France.
      And given how CRAZY Halle seems to have become since taking up with him, as proven by the custody battle etc, I do not see her leaving him any time soon.
      Since there is no way she would be allowed to take Nahla with her to Europe, I think this is actually a ‘SOLUTION’ she came up with to fix her onging relationship and image issues.
      Here is what I mean:
      * She will move to France with Olivier
      * She will explain to us all that she can’t have this baby live away from his father.
      * She will leave Nahla here in the US, with Gabriel, in his sole custody, with clear conscience and easy heart. Nahla fulfilled her purpose in Halle’s life, now is the time to give the new baby a shot at making Halle’s life better.
      * She will cry long and hard in PUBLIC about being broken for having to leave Nahla behind; she will blame Gabriel for her heartache and the child’s.
      * She will use this pregnancy to save face, and free herself from an unteanable situation the custody fight got her into.
      * She will hope to avoid public backlash, by blaming Gabriel for keeping Nahla here, and then blaming Olivier for wanting to live in France.

      She is such a sweet, demure, polite, accomodating little wallflower , she always submits to the will of a man in her life, no matter how much it hurts her – that will be the spin, and the ploy for public sympathy and forgiveness.
      I’m already shaking my damn head so hard I gave myself a migraine…
      Oh, the crazyness to come! It is going to be EPIC, and the only winner will be Halle, no matter what the true outcome is. The kids are just collateral in her thinking. Nutjob!

  49. Oyn says:

    So THIS is why we saw Olivier hitting up the liquor stores nearly every day and 7am THREE months back! Dude, you in for nightmares now.
    Somehow I think he will just probably run though and let Halle have this one all to herself.

    • Amanda says:

      Oliver is almost 50 and childless. He seems to love carrying Halles girl around. I wouldnt be surprised if he is the one that wanted a baby. A lot of men who cant be tied down in their youth mellow down around that age and starts wanting babies to carry on their genes as mortally creeps in.

      • Lady D says:

        Don’t they usually pick younger women to have babies with though? I think this pregnancy was a (happy) surprise to Halle. I can’t stand her but I wish her joy and luck with the bambino. I think she is one of the most beautiful women in HWood.

      • Lauren says:

        Hopefully he’s “mellowed out” some more in the months since he beat Nahla’s dad to a pulp! The cynic in me sees this as a further custody ploy to get Halle and Nahla to France.

  50. Luxe says:

    And here I thought the TG brawl was the countdown to the end of this relationship. Hopefully history won’t repeat itself, but she has not changed her pattern since she became Hollywood. So God bless the baby.

    I was gonna make an eyes wide open joke about Martinez, but I will keep it to myself. :-D

  51. Mr.Smurf says:

    Ugh, I was hoping this would be a rumor. Halle Berry is just so crazy, and in this relationship she really strikes me as someone who puts her relationships over her kid…might not be true, but that’s the impression that I get in this relationship.

    I’m not too worried about her age. For all those who think it’s selfish, because she’ll be in her sixties and all that other crap……my grandma has a friend in her late fifties, early sixties. This friend is raising her seven grandkids from her daughter, who can do absolutely nothing but get high and pop out babies. The kids range from 18 to two….and it’s just her raising them.

    I don’t think celebrities, or people really can win when it comes to pregnancy. If she was 25 people would say she’s too young, can’t focus on her kid-the same with being 45….when is the “correct” age to have kids?

  52. Bijlee says:

    Congrats Crazy!

  53. Ag says:

    If they know the sex, she’s further along than 3 months. 18/20 weeks or more.

  54. ceilie says:

    anchor baby. definitely an anchor baby.

    • betty says:

      That makes no sense

      • ceilie says:

        he could very well want to leave her because a) they’re obviously never moving to france and/or b) the woman is so obviously all about drama. so she could have gotten pregnant to keep him around. a valid theory so yeah it makes total and absolute sense.

      • lena80 says:

        So she “forced” OM to get her pregnant? I get that they have had a questionable history with Nahla’s father (really, WE do not know the truth)BUT this argument is disgusting. OM is grown and can leave IF he wants to. HB can’t force OM to do anything he doesn’t want to do, let alone forcing his seed in her uterus.

  55. Alana Fajina says:

    Yipes!! Uh.. congrats?

  56. tia says:

    Hmmm I wonder if she had an egg donor.. mixed race babies are always so friggin beautiful.. curly wavy hair, light Green eyes, best of luck to them.. :)

  57. k.d says:

    THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!!!
    Poor future baby… Having to deal his whole life with crazy mama Berry, hell no !

  58. DIANE says:

    Wow. Just wow. Has this guy not been paying attention lo, these past few years? What does he think is going to happen when they can’t stand each other anymore? He’s already seen his future.

  59. TOPgirl says:

    I personally think 46 is too old to have another child. Also, considering her drama with her ex….and her trail of drama with exes in general. Maybe this will work for her, but I seriously don’t think Olivier is going to stick around.

  60. Becky1 says:

    There’s a lot of criticism on here about Halle’s age. I’m curious…how old do people think is too old to get pregnant? What about a woman who gets pregnant naturally/unexpectedly (no IVF, etc.) in her early to mid 40′s? Is that “too old?”

    I know a woman who never planned on having kids who got accidentally pregnant at 42. She’s having the baby but sick of people judging her for being “old.”

    • TG says:

      My mom had me at 38 (36 years ago!). She went on to have my brother at 41 and my youngest brother at 44. She never went to a single doctor the entire pregnancy and we were born at home and all of us were and are healthy. She also had had 8 children prior to me and they were all healthy too.

      So while I despise Helle and I think she is having this baby as a backup to try to get to france and take Gabriel from his duaghter, age isn’t one of the things I am concerned about.

  61. Ruyana says:

    I see another custody battle in the future.

  62. jaye says:

    As a woman in her forties, I resent the implication that forty is “old”. I see and hear that comment all the time and it pisses me off. So what, just because I’m forty I should just go ahead buy my rocking chair set it up on the porch and shake my cane at the young whippersnappers and warn them off of my lawn? GTFOH.

    • Becky1 says:

      Agreed. It’s ridiculous. I’m 40 and I don’t feel or look old. I can see thinking 40 is old when you are in your 20′s but once you hit 30 you should realize that 40 (at least today’s 40) is not at all old. Yeah, technically I’m middle aged but I certainly am not old!

      • maria says:

        I’m 48, and look and feel much younger, and I recall at 40 thinking what the big deal was…HOWEVER, 45 can be a slap in the face……when the hormones start fluctuating, it does change everything a little. Of course, state of mind is crucial, but I was quite cocky until I hit 45…and then…YIKES..just a little warning to 40 year olds out there…and I’m a personal trainer, doing all things right.. *sigh*..nothing lasts forever.. ;-)

    • Sugar says:

      lol. Yes Mrs. DuBose….

  63. Amanda says:

    So much ageism here.Maybe people could be equally concerned about the fact that we live in a culture that glamorizes teen pregnancies with tv shows. I have a few friends who had parents that werent “ready” to be parents when they were born am pretty sure they would have rather have an older parent that were there for them all the way, even if that made them a little old at graduation. Smh.

  64. truthful says:

    now she will be apart of Oliver’s life for a long time, even if they break up..

    goodluck to her with that one.

    maybe now he won’t drunkenly rant about not being Nahla’s real dad (cause she has a daddy)

  65. Nicolette says:

    Wow. Congrats for getting pregnant by a guy that’s obviously got some major abuse/anger issues. Wonder how calm and understanding he’ll be when that baby wakes up in the middle of the night crying and disturbs him.

  66. CaramelKiss says:

    Sooo, they have these specialists called Perinatalogist who do nothing else but deal with high risk pregnancies. I had a specialist, had my kid at 39 and they definitely can rule out birth defects and determine the sex very early in the pregnancy. With that being said, they need a test for that bat-shit cray cray gene that is running rampant in her system. LOL.

  67. TG says:

    So basically this guy tried to kill the father of her first child and she was so pleased about it she decided he was father of the year material and got pregnant about a month later. Coincidence? I think not. Gabe better be worried and get lawyered up this woman will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

  68. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Im shocked at the amount of ageism on here!
    I can see getting down on Halle for trying to alienate Gariel from his daughter, and I can see getting down on her for clearly trying to bulldoze him out of Nahlas life. I cant however see critiszing her for getting pregnant at her age which isent even THAT old for modern sensibilities! Gosh, havent we moved on beyond the 1970s thinking and medicine ladies?
    Not very sophisticated opinions in my estimation. Judgy-judgy and agist. I think a bunch of MEN would sound more liberated on this topic!
    Wow! No one judges women more harshly and bigotedly than OTHER WOMEN.

    • Nonan says:

      I agree. Its ageism. It is her business if she wants a baby at 46. Everyone else needs to mind their own affairs.

      Besides, its obvious Halle can provide for a child!

    • decorative item says:

      Perhaps when condemning others over being judgmental, you should not judge 50% of the population as being judgmental. Unless of course you are a woman and are just trying to prove your point;-)

      (Wanders off into the forest scratching head)

  69. Me says:

    I love how everyone on here thinks Gabriel is some kind of saint and without fault. LOL. Okay.

    Congrats to Halle, Olivier and Nahla.

  70. Violet says:

    I’m happy for Nahla, but wow — the custody battles with Olivier will be EPIC when they break up. They’ll make her exchanges with Gabriel seem positively civilized.

  71. Bread and Circuses says:

    I always forget she’s that old. She looks ten years younger and fabulous for that age too.

    I hope the baby is healthy and grows up in a happy, peaceful home.

  72. embra says:

    I can not stand this woman- that being said, she has type 2 diabetes and has been very vocal about maintaining her health, I’m sure they did genetic testing, her age and diabetes will be risk factors but i always wish pregnancies go well.

  73. Cinderella says:

    Good luck little baby. You’re going to need it.

  74. Anon says:

    The couple is set to welcome their first child together this fall, Berry’s rep tells PEOPLE.

    “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.”

    • la chica says:

      Notice that it was Halle’s rep who made the announcement. Not Martinez’. Not a JOINT statement. This is all Halle’s doing. She is desperate to hold onto this man.

  75. Maritza says:

    A baby is a blessing so congratulations to them.

  76. Melissa says:

    trainwreck!!!

  77. apsutter says:

    Damn…if I was Halle with her body at 46 I would NOT be having another baby. Sueprficial I know but, yikes!

  78. Samtha says:

    I’m still stuck on the fact that she is 46. And she does not look nipped and tucked and botoxed into oblivion at all. She may be cray cray, but she has some seriously stunning genes.

    • Asdfg says:

      Agree! I wonder what race she is? African american? Her complexion is flawless!

      • Nonan says:

        She looks younger than her age, nice skin. Black don’t crack, as the saying goes.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Asdfg, who wrote: “Agree! I wonder what race she is? African american? Her complexion is flawless!”

        Halle Berry (and her sister) has a white mother and a black father.

      • Janet says:

        She is biracial. Her mother is white and her father is black.

    • Janet says:

      Most black women have good skin. There is an old saying among black people that “good black don’t crack”.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        It makes sense. Most skin aging is caused by day-to-day exposure to the sun, and the melanin in our skin is what protects us from the sun. More is better–as long as you take your vitamin D supplements.

      • A says:

        Black people need sunscreen too…we are not immune to skin damage, wrinkles, sagging and skin cancer.
        We can also get sun burned and get skin discoloration.
        “Black skin” is actually very “fragile”, we (can) get melasma and other skin discoloration after zits and therefor need to be extra careful with the sun because we want an even skintone.

  79. Christo says:

    I’ll be honest: I have never been a fan of Halle Berry. Her treatment of Gabriel and her predilection for problems with most men make her every action very suspect in my mind. That being said, I can separate my distaste for her from the fact that I sincerely hope she has a healthy baby boy with Olivier. In addition, I’m hoping we don’t see the Gabriel situation play out with Olivier in the coming years—though I can’t see myself liking Olivier in any regard; he seems short-tempered, and that could always be a precursor for possible abuse. Congratulations Halle.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      To be honest, I don’t understand why so many woman blame Halle for the breakup of ‘all’ of her past relationships.

      The problem is that Halle so messed up by the way her father treated her mother and how he left the family when she and sister were young, she chose men just like him. Her mother once said that her daughter (Halle) always seems to find the worst man in the city and fall in love with him.

      I also don’t understand why everyone gives Gabriel Aubrey a pass. We know nothing of his dating history or how his prior relationships ended or if ‘he’ has anger issues. If you Google him for ex-girlfriends all you get is Halle Berry and his two-date experience with Kim Kardashian.

      • jwoolman says:

        Emma- I heard that Halle pursued Gabriel after seeing an ad with him in it (he’s a model). Maybe she was scouting for a sperm donor and so chose him just for his looks… So he might not have fit her usual pattern. And nothing coming up on google probably means there’s nothing to report. Halle is the only one claiming bad stuff about him, but she does that about all her exes. Before breakup, they’re wonderful. But she was pretty specific about her praises of Gabriel pre-breakup, about how gentle he was . She just didn’t predict how attached he would become to the kid. Before Nahla, Halle was on some talk show with someone who was openly gay and she said something about he (the gay guy) would be the ideal guy to have a child with because he wouldn’t hang around and she would have the kid to herself. The guy told her it wouldn’t work that way, he would be the dad regardless- but it showed how Halle was thinking.

  80. jc126 says:

    Can’t stand her, but I wish her and all involved the best. The ageist comments from some posters here are just idiotic.

  81. Memphis says:

    A new baby to fight with her soon to be ex over.

  82. als says:

    I can’t believe she is 46, she looks amazing, especially her face looks much younger.
    I don’t know about Halle as a mom or a woman, but people should get over the idea of ‘she’s too old” – times are difficult, people are difficult, maybe there are women that want to be young moms at 20 or 25 but they just can’t because they can’t afford it or they don’t have anyone in ther lives – that’s just how life is, so we take what we get, when we ge it.

  83. derpy says:

    my mom was 43 when she had me. And she is still awesome. Halle is crazy as fk but her age is not the issue with being pregnant her crazy is

  84. Jennifer12 says:

    Not very likely that she became pregnant naturally, considering her age. And at least Nahla has one sane parent. This little boy?

  85. Karolina says:

    Waaaay too old. To me, mid to late 30ies are the absolute limit. Best would be late 20ies imo. my best friend had parents who were at the age of my grandparents and it was horrible for her. When she was a teen her mum died at the age of 62 because of cancer and now she is in her mid twenties and constantly worried about her dad because he is pushing 80 and in bad shape. You should not need to deal with age related diseases or death causes of your parents when you are a teenager or a college kid. Of course people die, but she lost her mum in the most important phase in her life, left behind with a dad who was not able to help her at all physically and mentally because of his old age. Good for you if you feel a wave of youthfullness and decide to get pregnant in your late 40ies, but really think of your child. Chances are very high you won’t be around when your kid turns 30 and won’t ever meet your grandchildren.

    • hopperlea says:

      Hogwash!!

      Halle Berry is downright more healthier than your average fast food eating, overweight, drinking and financially bankrupted 25 year old anyday who will probably outlive 25% of them in today’s world.

      Age limit on being a parent? Give me an effing break!

    • maria says:

      exactly. There’s a reason that ‘most’ older women pursue fertility treatments. They can’t get pregnant because their body is preparing for menopause and the end of fertility. When one seeks treatments, it isn’t natural, not to mention the eggs are quite old so the risks of issues arises. Hollywood stars especially, wait longer, to preserve their careers and bodies, and then pay the price by getting older and less fertile…desparation ensues to get pregnant and medical intervention is necessary. Nature knows best but people just have to do what they to have a baby. and true, Halle may never meet her grandkids.

    • Dawn says:

      There are no absolutes in life. I have a friend whose dad died at the tender age of 24. She was 3. As for me my grandparents were in their 70′s when I was born and they got to meet my son..their great grandchild. I think life is a gift and to get that life from your parents at any age is something to be grateful for and this all I will say on the matter.

    • chi says:

      “Chances are very high you won’t be around when your kid turns 30 and won’t ever meet your grandchildren.” Sooo what?

      My Dad was an avid smoker for 40+ years. He loved it so much. He knew the consequences. It was his choice, he was happy with it. He died when he was 57 (I was 24). I was never angry or hurt or something. I understood. Parents are individuals too, they are not supposed to organize their entire life around their progenies.

    • jc126 says:

      Good thing your friend’s experience doesn’t apply to everyone else, then.

  86. JulieM says:

    First, I wish the two of them a healthy baby. Can’t stand H/O together, but there you go.

    Second, Halle will use this as emotional blackmail against Gabriel. Nahla prayed for a sibling and you (Gabriel) are keeping her from being with her little brother. As others have said, hope Gabriel stays lawyered up.

  87. Dawn says:

    Congrats to them. And I am sure the baby will be healthy and if it helped settle things down between her and Gabe regarding the custody of Nahla that’s great. As far as age goes and birth defects I’ve known three couples who were all in their early 30′s who had DS kids and I’ve have one friend who had a meno baby (she was 48) and the kid was just fine. So no judgement here and I’m just happy for them is all and I hope Ollie works on that temper.

  88. paranormalgirl says:

    Congrats to them on the baby. That said, they are both beautiful pieces of homemade bread wrapped around a creamy filling of aggression with a schmear of crazy. Hope it all works out for them.

    • Oops says:

      +1, I have the impression they all (Halle and Gabriel of course and Olivier) love Nahla and I hope it would be the same for the baby and that they would change their behaviour for the kids happiness and health

      • TG says:

        If you loved your child you wouldn’t constantly be scheming to remove the father from your child’s life. Narcissists are incapable of love for anyone but themselves.

  89. juju says:

    who are u people to say that anybody is too old to get pregnant ????? bunch of jealous heffers !!!!!!

    • Ugh. I’m not jealous. Kids aren’t for me and I know nothing about pregnancy, so I can’t judge anyone. BUT, I do feel badly that the kid will have two lunatics for parents.

  90. Brina says:

    I have no issues with her age, or how she did or did not get knocked up.
    I have an issue with this woman PERIOD…
    This is someone who cannot responsibly raise the daughter she has and she is adding to the hot mess of her life by having another child??
    She already needs serious counseling, need I remind everyone about the Thanksgiving fiasco where the father of her daughter got beaten in her driveway????
    She takes no responsibility for her own actions, its always the mans fault, she just goes on TV and cries about it and poof she is absolved.
    This woman is a classic case for the reason I think we should have to have a license to breed.
    She is so drastically removed from what a responsible parent is that any child (ren) she has should be removed from her custody immediately.

    • Annette says:

      Yep, this, +100. Murphy’s law seems to apply when it comes to fertility. Those people who always make you go “gah, please, please don’t bring a kid/more kids into this mess” always seem to have this sort of teflon fertility. They’ll get knocked up at the drop of the hat, even under the most statistically unlikely conditions. So even though Halle is 46 I was actually expecting her to get knocked up again one way or another. The way she uses Nahla as a pawn in her selfish game just disgusts me, and, I know I’m not a fly on their wall or anything but I can well believe she doesn’t really love that kid except when it’s convenient to her. This is just another kid to drag through the mud.

  91. maria says:

    I wonder, somehow, if Oliver, having his OWN child, might empathize more with Gabriel. He may realize the love a Father can have for his child and understand why Gabriel will fight for his rights.

    • Annette says:

      Well, that would be the highest possible outcome but unfortunately we are dealing with emotionally stunted adults here. I think Halle got pregnant as part of some delusional new plan of hers to move to France.

    • Feebee says:

      Give it five years, one of them may be buying the other a drink as they bond over similarities in their lives.

  92. Ann says:

    She should have chosen a much younger father to improve the odds of having a healthy child.

  93. Dap says:

    So, she ‘s making a baby with a man who doesn’t like to live in the US and wants to go back to France while she’s forbidden to go live in France. More drama to come…

    • paranormalgirl says:

      SHE isn’t forbidden from living in France. She’s not allowed to move Nahla to France.

  94. alex says:

    Funny how TMZ had the first exclusive of the pregnancy. The same outlet that sided with Halle and bashed GA during all the custody issues. TMZ is not the outlet actors use to make baby announcements, UNLESS they had a previous agreement. You scratch my back, I scratch yours.

  95. Kat says:

    I don’t know what to think, i mean, good for them, bad for the baby? What is happening when they split? Maybe this changes their lives and they become great parents and better people, but if not, the fight will be EPIC.

  96. LAK says:

    If I were Halle’s PR agent, these comments,bar the age ones, would give me cause for worry.

    Older vs young mothers is a societal debate that is not Halle’s problem.

    What is a problem is that, age issues aside, there is hardly a comment on here congratulating her without the caveat of hoping for better parenting next time.

    She’s lost so much of the public’s respect going by these comments that a new baby is greated with consternation and pity for the baby rather than the white washing of Halle’s image. She probably told TMZ the news thinking it would help her image.

  97. J7 says:

    I really feel sorry for Nahla and that baby…there is nothing more damaging than having a nut case for a Mother.

  98. Isabell says:

    Wow…a lot of the comments on here are over-the-top. She’s pregnant. Her choice, her body. Why are so many women criticizing another woman about her choice of what she does with her uterus? If you’re a Pro-choice women, be pro-choice and don’t judge women for deciding to have babies late in life.

    • msw says:

      What people mean when they talk about “freedom,” or “choices,” is “freedoms or choices that I personally agree with.” Trufax.

      • Isabell says:

        What I mean, let her make her own choice. She’s an adult woman. She chose to get pregnant and have a baby. Let her be. Thought this was America?

  99. Mar says:

    Wow- I am surprised with a lot of you!!

    First of all- we shouldn’t judge anyone that has the means to raise a kid and wants another-

    Secondly- you guys act like you hang out with this couple well enough to judge them.

    I am happy for her- and as long as she is able to have kids and wants them- all the power to her!

  100. Sabrine says:

    People don’t know Halle personally but they think they are more than qualified to judge and condemn her from what they read in those “factual” online entertainment sites and in sleezy tabloids. I think it’s safe to say these people are not the sharpest knives in the drawer….

    • LAK says:

      Many people’s opinions are drawn from court documents [leaked by Halle and Gabriel themselves] and Halle’s own interviews over many years.

    • TG says:

      You think we aren’t sharp? Just watch what happens in the next few months or year when she yet again tries to take her daughter to France thru the court. She will because this time she will use the fact that her new child is French and they want to live in France or some kind of nonesense. Then you will believe that we know what we are talking about. I remember after it came out that the court had shut her down re her move to France I don’t think I even posted a comment because I knew this wasn’t the end. I knew something bad was going to happen and sure enough a few months later she had her hired thug of a boyfriend beat the crap (attempted murder in my opinion) out of the father of her daughter when he was dropping the child off on his own days doing this witch a favor. Olivier, by his own admission, approached Gabe first and said something about them needing to move on. Why would Gabe need to move on he had just one a huge court battle and was voluntarily handing over his child on his own custody time. Also, the LAPD work as Halle’s security so they are paid and in her back pocket that is why no charges were filed against that thug and no further investigation was done to prove that halle was also involved, which I believe she was. Also, she only became ingaged to this thug after awhile when it wasn’t working in court to just have a boyfriend. She has no intention of marrying this thug. The only way she will marry him is if somehow it can help her court case. This woman is so predictable. Many of us on here have been watching this case and have been able to predict her actions from a mile away since she is so transparent about her intentions. She is vile.

  101. HappyJoyJoy says:

    Of course she has all sorts of resources available to give the baby the best possible care needed. However… you can’t buy patience & energy. I stopped having children by the time I was 24. And now at 30 I can see how ones energy decreases. It seems a bit unfair to the kids who are born to older parents. By the time I’m 40 I will have two kids in college :) FTW!

  102. Original A says:

    That will be one beautiful baby. Well, best of luck to everyone involved. Hopefully, they’ll all come to their senses. This also explains Oliver kicking out at that pap.

  103. Maria says:

    I had my second child at 44 years old. When I was 31, I had 2 years fertility to get pregnant, medium pregnancy, 27 hour labor.

    At 44, I got pregnant naturally, worked full time until two weeks before birth, had a 100% natural birth without as much as an aspirin, and the nurses in France where I had the baby said I was the oldest but strongest woman having a baby that day…All these 20 year olds around me having C sections. not a hitch, no mind you I had all the tests they told me to do beforehand. It is not young but you are a more patient mom I think and also you care less about being trapped at home and not able to get out etc…good for them,,,

    Some people here are so ageist, sexist and chauvinist, not to mention ignorant.

    Let’s begin with 2 simple matters:
    Down Syndrome can be detected nowadays during pregnancy.

    That means, that a woman can choose not to carry on with the pregnancy.

    I don’t recall so many comments about the age of a parent when a male celebrity is having a child while 50-60 years old and certainly hardly any comments about male celebrities having children in their 40s.

    Halle seems in great shape and if she wants to have another child and build a family at 46- then good for her (and her daughter).
    More power to her.

    Other than congratulations, I can’t see any decent comment in such happy and fortunate occasion.

    • Bijlee says:

      I definitely see a ton of comments when there’s old men…Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, and some other guy Hugh grant I think.

      • mimi says:

        Those men are much much older than 46.
        One of them is in his 60s or 70s if I am not mistaken.

        Can you compare that with a 46 fit and healthy woman?

        No one ever comments on the guys who are becoming fathers in their 40s.

    good god people you know nothing about human reproduction?? you can keep having your periods but with advanced age, less and less of your eggs are viable. this is why birth defects and miscarriages increase with age.

    by age 46, a woman’s chances of getting pregnant with her own eggs is miniscule, even with fertility treatments. my sister just did IVF at one of the best clinics in the country and over 45, they give you less than 1% with your own eggs. it’s possible of course, but 99% of the time a woman at that age has gotten pregnant with donor eggs.

    whatever the situation with halle, she’s going to be the mother of this child. she has the resources to be an older mother. congratulations to the whole family.

      Women are very uninformed about reproductive health & fertility. Bet a lot of people think a period equals fertility.

    • HK9 says:

      There are a whole lot of people on the planet today whose chances of getting here were “miniscule”. Guess it makes them extra special. :-)

      Those of us who do know something about human reproduction know that young or old, you’ve got to jump through some hoops to get here and if you’re on the planet you’re meant to be here.

      I know lots of healthy young couples who can’t conceive or miscarried many times, and I also know lots of women in their 40s who are pregnant without IVF. I’m not even going to try to figure it out because according to conventional wisdom this shouldn’t be happening…..

      • moot says:

        No one’s saying it *shouldn’t* happen or that it never happens. People say there’s a *very low chance* of it happening. There’s a huge difference in those words. “Unlikely chance” is not the same as zero chance.

        There are a lot of lottery winners around the world, too, but that doesn’t make your own odds of winning one any better. And yes, that makes all those winners out there extra special.

    I’d worry less about how old she is and more about the fact that momma is batsh*t.

  107. april says:

    I respect everyone’s opinion on this, however, on behalf of women I say Go Halle! I’m tired of all the old men becoming fathers like Bruce Willis, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, etc. I hope she has a happy and healthy pregnancy.

    Diabetic and already poor circulation and weak bones with frequent injury.. , not to wise to have a baby..
    Diabetes is a disorder that occurs when a person’s body does not process sugar correctly. This is caused either by an inability to produce enough of a hormone known as insulin, or the inability for the body’s cells to respond to it. Diabetes poses a risk to babies who are still in the womb, as women who have diabetes and get pregnant have an increased chance of miscarriage, birth defects and stillbirths. Women who have diabetes should contact a doctor before becoming pregnant to help lower this risk.

    With mothers over 35, there is a greater risk of hypertension and diabetes troubles for themselves, and likely a greater risk of juvenile diabetes for the children.

    I’m gonna get right on knitting those little boxing gloves I mean baby booties.

  110. Cletus says:

    Sheeyit, I’m about to be 37 and I’M too old to have a baby. WEll, maybe not to have one, but sure as hell too old to take care of a baby. Go ‘head, Halle- you’re a better man than I am. So to speak.

  111. Mom says:

    Never mind her age, this mother requires daily insulin. The repeated injuries,casts, etc. are a result of her long-term diabetes. Even with the very best of care, this is a high risk pregnancy. She needs to be around for Nahla.

    • lena80 says:

      I’m sure her doctors are monitoring her closely. She appears to be in good health overall and she did carry Nahla to term while having diabetes. I think she’ll be just fine…as well as the baby.

  112. Sabrine says:

    Halle Berry has Type 2 diabetes. She was misdiagnosed as having Type 1. The Type 2 she has is a rare form where you don’t have to be obese to get it. She takes very good care of herself. It’s not going to affect her pregnancy all that much.

  113. embertine says:

    I wonder if bathing in the blood of virgins is considered a risk factor in pregnancy because DAMN, I can’t believe she’s 46.

    I wish them all well, although I am preemptively cringing because Olivier Martinez is pretty high on the list on men I would never consider having a child with, just below Jesse James and Satan.

  114. Aurelia says:

    I am 40 and thinking of having a second baby. My fertility specialist told me amniocentesis does not detect DOWNS SYNDROME with 100% accuracy. I was shocked. I was going to rely on that. He also said this only picks up about issues in a sea of about 1000 possible defects. It gives people a false sense of security.
