Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez welcome first child together
The 47-year-old has given birth to a baby boy
Monday 07 October 2013
Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry has given birth to a baby boy, her first child with husband Olivier Martinez.
A representative for the 47-year-old confirmed that Berry gave birth on 5 October in Los Angeles.
The baby is Berry’s second child. She also has a five-year-old daughter, Nahla, with former boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
It is her first child with French actor and husband Olivier Martinez. The couple, who are both 47, married at the Chateau des Condé in Burgundy, France, in July.
The Ohio-born actress has previously been married to baseball player David Justice and R&B singer-songwriter Eric Benét.
Martinez has dated Kylie Minogue and British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, but has never been married before and has no other children.
Halle Berry said earlier this year that pregnancy would not stop her filming the role of Storm in the new X-Men film.
The actress said X-Men: Days of Future Past would be shot “around the bump”.
She also revealed she took four years off to raise her first child Nahla.
Berry won an Oscar for best actress in 2002 for her performance in Monster’s Ball. She is the only African-American woman to win an Oscar for a leading role.
