Halle Berry, 47, delivered a healthy baby boy yesterday, at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. This is her second child and her first child with french actor Olivier Martinez, also 47. She married Martinez in July of this year in a small ceremony in France, after they met in 2010 while working on the film "Dark Tide". This was the first marriage for Olivier Martinez and the third marriage for Halle Berry.
"Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez welcomed their son yesterday," the spokeswoman, Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson, told AFP in an email, without providing any further details.
"This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth," Berry told CNN when discussing her pregnancy in April. "I 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."
Halle has one other child, a daughter, Nahla, who is 5, with Canadian model Gabriel Aubry. A source at the hospital told People magazine on Saturday night, "Olivier hasn't left Halle's side. Nahla visited her baby brother earlier today." On Sunday, the big sister was seen skipping and prancing in the corridor of the maternity floor.
You may remember the bitter custody battle over Nahla that was fought between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubrey last year after their split. The battle culminated in a fist fight in Berry's Hollywood driveway on Thanksgiving Day last year, when Aubrey showed up to see his daughter. The squabble resulted in Aubry sporting a black eye, along with some bruises and cuts. However, it also spurred an amicable agreement between the two a week later.
Now that all that nastiness is in the distant past. Halle, Olivier, and Nahla can hopefully relax and enjoy the new baby in their lives.
