You’re not the only one surprised that Halle Berry is pregnant again! In her first interview since confirming she’s pregnant for the second time, the 46-year-old actress tells CNN, “I feel fantastic!”
Halle is expecting the new baby with fiance Olivier Martinez. Berry sat down with CNN’s Alina Cho, and said “This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth. 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.”
When asked if she knew if she was having a boy or a girl, Halle responded, “I don’t know, I don’t know. But the baby is healthy!”
At Berry’s side for the CNN chat with fashion designer and Project Runway judge Michael Kors, who both work with the United Nations World Food Program to fight hunger. (Berry was the guest of honor at the Four Seasons in NYC on Saturday for her work with the program.)
Berry explained that her pregnancy reminded her that many expectant women across the world struggle to feed themselves and their unborn children. “Especially now, being a pregnant woman and already having a child … it’s so important what happens to the baby while they’re in utero. And the first 1,000 days is fundamental,” said Berry, revealing her baby bump in sexy black dress by Kors. “Good nutrition during that time period is fundamental for your baby to develop properly and normally,” she added.
“I’m a mom, and that’s first and foremost, but it gives me another reason to exist, another purpose,” she said of her work with the charity. “And if I know that I’m helping one person every day in some way, that really makes me feel good, and that’s a legacy that I can leave to my children.”
The interview airs on CNN on Tuesday, April 8 at 12pm EST.
Congrats to the couple! Hopefully they’ll be more happy than Halle and Gabriel Aubry were! *gulp*
Here are some new(ish) pictures of Halle at the end of March. You can see she’s trying to cover that bump! I can’t imagine she’d announce her pregnancy (at her age) until she was 3+ months along, so she’s gotta be in her second trimester already!
Will Halle have better pregnancy style than Kim Kardashian? Do I even need to ask?? Check out some more pictures of Halle and Olivier after the jump! (more…)
