Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez Welcome A Son

Congratulations are in order for Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez.

The Academy Award-winning actress, 47, and her actor husband, 47, welcomed a baby boy on Saturday, October 5, Us Weekly reports. No further information has been announced at this time.

On Friday, we spotted the X-Men actress lunching in L.A.

In April, Halle announced the pregnancy saying it was “the biggest surprise of [her] life.”

“Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me,” she said at the time. “So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.” She went on to say the pregnancy was a “miracle.”

“I feel really happy. It’s one of the best things that happened in my life, for sure,” she added.

The pair were wed in an intimate ceremony in France this past summer, on July 13.

Halle also has a 5-year-old daughter Nahla with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.

    Congrats to them I know Halle is glad it’s over she was as big as a whale.

  • Joey

    I’m wondering if this child gets a normal name or not!

    • klutzy_girl

      I think it’ll be something French. Hopefully not Olivier Junior, though.

        I’m also thinking it’ll be a French name. Possible Jean-Pierre, Michele or Claude. Of course there’s the possibility of Simba!

        • annefan

          hmm I’m French and I can confirm that names like Jean-Michel, Claude or Michel are not given to French babies… or that was 50 years ago °_°

          And i’m sure his parents put a beret on his head the minute they saw him….

          • Lauren

            Simba maybe?

        • Laurie

          What a stupid cliché…Nobody under 60 is named that in France!

      Me too! Hopefully nothing stupid like ……JOEY.

  • klutzy_girl

    Congratulations to them! Felt like she was pregnant forever.

    Cannot wait to hear the name.

  • Isabella

    He may not have a French name Nahla’s name is Arabic I think. However, Olivier agreed to have his child born in America so he may not compromise and will insist on a French name.

      Nahla’s father wasn’t born in France…

      • Meliss

        I think she’s saying Nahla’s name is Arabic in spite of her parents’s nationality.

      Pretty sure Olivier HAD to accept wherever Halle decided to have the child.

  • Martha

    If his name isn’t Simba or Mufasa, then Halle has wasted a golden opportunity!

  • SiervaMaria

    So genuinely happy for her, him, them.

    ~CONGRATULATIONS~ to Halle, Olivier & Nahla… I bet little man is beautiful!

  • Albus

    Congrats to them. But i know this is beating a dead horse but why are people having kids at such old age? Early 40s i get it but late 40s? By the time the kid is 10 they’re gonna be pushing 60. An age people usually become grandparents.

    I don’t know. Sometimes i feel some people are obsessed in becoming parents no matter what and don’t care how old they are. That can either be good or bad.

      Why are you even thinking about the reproduction of OTHER people?

      Do you want me to decide at what age YOU should have children?

      No? Then how about you stop judging at what age OTHER people should have children.

    • SiervaMaria

      But are you basing this all on the fact their child will be 10 when they’ll be 57? And? Look at it from this pov. Halle just gave birth “herself” to her child. She didn’t use a surrogate and to our knowledge she had no fertility issues. Halle was/is more physically fit than most 20 year olds. She and Oliver are financially secure, and in a committed relationship. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring be you 20 or 60. It’s her body, her life, her choice.

    Albus here was sharing an opinion and I fully understand him. My parents were in their 40s when they had me and sometimes its been really tough.

    • SiervaMaria

      No disrespect, but it is in fact an opinion and shouldn’t be expressed as if it’s the rule and not the exception because just as you had tough times sometimes, I know way to many older parents who put younger ones to shame in all ways. I don’t like this ageism negativity that’s sprung up ever since Halle first announced she was pregnant. Its wrong. Its stamping mostly women with this expiration date that’s unfair. No, I wouldn’t expect becoming a new parent at 60 to be a prudent undertaking but 47?! Please. No one told Larry King or Bobby Deniro to stop at over 60! Steve Martin just had his first kid and he’s 67! I’m sorry, but My paternal grandmother didn’t even start having children until she was 41, had four in quick succession and didn’t pass until she was 101 and I’m here; me and mine.

  • A

    His name is Maceo Robert. I like it.

    • Veep

      Lovely name. I’ll wait to hear how they choose to pronounce it.

      • SiervaMaria

        It’s generally pronounced “may-see-oh.” It was really not a rare name in African America prior to the 60’s, The most famous person I’ve ever known to have it is Maceo Parker whose played sax with James Brown (I’m a MAJOR JB fan) until JB passed away. I didn’t know the history of the name and I love it.
