Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez Expecting A Son

It’ll be a boy for Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez.

Just hours after spotting the pair strolling hand-in-hand in Paris, Olivier told PEOPLE, “My son will be an American, but I remain French.”

The actor, 47, confirmed their baby’s gender at the opening night of the Champs-Elysées Film Festival, where he is serving as this year’s honorary president.

In terms of walking the red carpet in America versus France, Olivier said there is a difference.

“I’m French — it’s less important,” he said.” Meaning, I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there — but I’m still a foreigner.”

He then went on to proudly repeat, “My son will be an American.”

The couple expect their son to arrive this fall.

    Olivier says his son will be an American, guess they plan on raising him in the Ol’ US of A. Still he will have dual citizenship in France and America. So happy for him, he seems to be pretty excited about becoming a father. It would take a man like Olivier to make a boy. Olivier and Halle are so good looking, know that’s going to be a gorgeous baby.

      Yes, because it’s most important that the baby be gorgeous.

      “It would take a man like Olivier to make a boy”

      What is that supposed to mean? Less attractive men are not capable of making boys? Can an overweight man not produce a boy? Or a short, scrawny man? I didn’t realize that sperm carrying a Y chromosome were limited to such an elite group of men.

    Nice that he did not insist on Halle having the baby in France.

    As a french girl, nobody know Olivier Martinez over here. He is not living here for over 2 decade, so who cares if the baby is living in USA ! Hope the baby will be healthy, that all !
