Halle Berry: 'I Thought I Was Past The Point' Of Another Pregnancy

Halle Berry’s news that she is expecting a second child came as a bit of a shock to the actress herself.

“I feel fantastic. This has been the biggest surprise of my life to tell you the truth,” the 46-year-old star told CNN.

Last week, Halle and fiance Olivier Martinez, 47, announced they were expecting their first child together – something she thought might not be possible.

“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,” she continued.

Halle shot down reports that she and Olivier are having a boy, telling CNN they do not know the gender yet.
