Oscar-winner Halle Berry and her fiancé, fellow actor Olivier Martinez, recently surprised fans with their pregnancy news. But no one was more shocked than Halle herself.
“I feel fantastic,” the actress, 46, tells CNN. “This has been the biggest surprise of my life to tell you the truth,” she adds. “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.”
But she’s keeping mum about the baby boy rumors.
“I don’t know, I don’t know,” she said when asked if it’s a boy, stressing that all she wanted was for the baby to be “healthy.”
Interviewed alongside Michael Kors, the two spoke on behalf of the U.N. World Food Programme.
“Especially now, being a pregnant woman and already having a child, that it’s so important: what happens to the baby while they’re in utero,” Halle explains.
She adds: “And the first 1,000 days is fundamental. Good nutrition during that time period is fundamental for your baby to develop properly and normally and to live a normal life.”
