Actress Halle Berry, 41, has confirmed that she is three months pregnant with 31-year-old boyfriend Gabriel Aubry‘s baby.

In an email to close friend, Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell, Halle writes,

Yes, I am three months pregnant! Gabriel and I are beyond excited, and I’ve waited a long time for this moment in life. Now the next seven months will be the longest of my life!

Can’t wait to see you and give you a squeeze and see a pic of your little sweetie. Until then, you heard it from ME first!

Earlier today, it was announced that her next film, Tulia, had been delayed, sparking pregnancy rumors yet again — and this time, they were true!

That kid is going to be gorgeous!

esmeralda on

Congrats!!! I am so excited for them.

CTBmom on

Yea!! I am so happy for Halle, and I bet this is going to be an absolutely beautiful baby.

lizzie on

Congratulations to them both! A little confusing though, how she says she’s 3 months pregnant then says the next 7 months will be the longest of her life – has no one told her pregnancy lasts 9 months?

Sarah’s note: Actually, she’s technically right. If you go full term, you are pregnant the FULL 9 months — 40 weeks — which is pretty close to hitting 10 months.

YAY! I am SOOOO happy for her!!!

Hope she has a healthy pregnancy and an easy delivery. We already know the baby will be a knockout.

Sam on

This is WONDERFUL news. I am so happy for her. I remember reading that she said she wanted children at least by her 40th birthday. I’m doing a happy dance for you, Halle! Love this gorgeous and talented actress!

kim on

I also was very excited when I seen this..Love her. She has been waiting for this for a very long time..

gabriella on

I’m so happy for halle, I knew she was pregnant in the recent pics I saw of her. Salma hayek and halle berry were the two ladies I was hoping would get pregnant this year since they are both 41, and have always said they wanted a child. Halle and gabriel are gorgeous, can’t wait to see their baby. I think it will be a boy for some reason.

Megan on

Oh this is absolutely wonderful news! We all know how long Halle has wanted this and her dream has finally come true–that’s absolutely amazing! So happy for her and Gabriel! And yes there is no doubt that this baby will be one of those ones that takes your breath away…can’t wait to see the progression of her pregnancy and to meet that little one…YAY for Halle and Gabriel!

landroverdisco on

Lynn on

Well – finally a celeb who will actually confirm & not leave us hanging!!

Devon on

Congrats Halle & Gabriel!!!

Sneaky CBB! I wrote in a tip about a week ago that Jonathan Jaxson has confirmed that she was pregnant and you guys told me she wasn’t!

Anyhoo, this baby is going to be GORGEOUS!

Sarah’s note: Yeah, we had source tell us she definitely wasn’t, per Halle’s rep, then wrote us back to say she wasn’t sure. So we never posted anything on it since we didn’t trust the source. Sorry we emailed it to you!

FC on

I’m happy for her! She’s finally going to have the chance to be a mom! This is going to be another pregnancy I want to watch, and be anticipating the baby’s birth like a son of a gun! :)β™₯

Cyndi on

That’s great news for the couple. I hope she has a happy, healthy 9 (10) months.

Ashley on

That is so great for her! One question though, is she still in her step-daughter’s life? She used to call her her daughter, didn’t she?

Cath on

I am so happy for her! She is one of my very favorite celebs and always seems so kind and gentle. She’ll be a wonderful mom!

Campbell on

This is going to be a HUGELY watched pregnancy, and I couldn’t be happier for her. Her being diabetic AND 41 I’d say she has worked very hard to be healthy and make this happen. I really don’t know much about her beautiful model manfriend(boyfriend just sounds funny). Other than the obvious. Couldn’t you all just imagine how truly beautiful this baby will be.

Ali on

WOw this baby is going to be beyond stunning, I am soo excited for Haley and Gabriel. I hope everything goes smoothly, and I can’t wait to see her as a mom! Congrats!

Campbell on

Oh, and I was pregnant w/ my son Jacob for a VERY LONG 44 weeks. This was back in 1985, thank goodness they don’t allow that anymore!

Lola on

Aww. Congrats.

Kim on

yay!!! congrats.

MommyX1 on

Congrats to her! I wonder what her exact due date is…I’m also 3 months, so we could have a similar due date. It’s going to be exciting watching her grow and comparing to myself. Lol.

Devon on

hahaha, no worries Sarah!

It’s great news for Halle and Gabriel.

Aaron on

Yay for Halle! Yes, it will be one heckuva gorgeous child! I am so happy for her! She’s been diabetic for a very long time, and as such, she really shouldn’t have a problem with the pregnancy–she knows how to take care of herself. It’s much harder when you are diagnosed during pregnancy and really don’t take it seriously. She’s been insulin dependant for a long time, she knows what she’s doing. As long as you maintain a normal blood sugar level during pregnancy, you should have no more complications than a normal pregnancy. When you don’t is when you start to have some of the complications associated with a diabetic pregnancy.
Congratulations to both of them! Super exciting!

Renee on

Congrats for her!

Tam on

Wow I am so happy for Halle! Ever since I read on this site that she was going to start trying for a baby I’ve been anticipating the announcement. I think it’s pretty cool that she’s biracial and her boyfriend is (French)? I can’t wait to see what the baby looks like!

lj on

I’m so excited for both Halle & Gabriel.

I wish her a happy & healthy pregnancy. It’s been a long time coming!


Sasha on

Slightly off topic, but does anyone know how expecting unmarried couples (or unmarried couples in general) reply to the questions regarding marriage, ie “when’s the big date” or “why not”, “isn’t it better for the child” etc?? I am looking for a few perfect replies that don’t get into the long, drawn out actual reason πŸ™‚ TIA! AND Congrats Halle!

J.M. on

I am so happy for Halle. I know she’s been dying to be a mother for a long time. All I have to say is this baby will be the most gorgeous baby ever!! I hope it’s a girl with mama’s striking features!

lena on

i want this child to grow up and date one of angelina’s kids, lol. congrats to her and gabriel, hope everything goes smoothly for them

J.J. on

Congrats!! FINALLY Halle’s having a baby!! Can’t wait to see the little boy or girl next February/March!!

Heather on

Ahhh! I’m so happy for them. I heard the rumor earlier today and I was hoping it was true. I can tell how thrilled she is. Good luck to her and Gabriel.

Luciana on

Finally!!!!!! I can’t wait to see her with a big belly!! She must be soooo happy!!

Congrats Halle!!!!

J on

Wow, Congratulations! I bet she’ll have a nonstop grin, like Naoni Watts does, from now on. πŸ˜€

Jen on

OMG, Gabriel Aubrey is so freakin’ GORGEOUS!! Halle Berry ain’t too bad herself, I know, I know. She is soooo lucky! Congrats to the happy couple.

Kelsie on

WONDERFUL! I’m so happy to hear this! I’m sure the two of them will be wonderful parents. I couldn’t agree with the previous posts more, he or she will be an absolutely beautiful baby! Move over Shiloh Jolie-Pitt…lol

Kimber Christian on

Congrats! That is great news! It makes me so happy to hear of “older” mothers (not 23 like Britney) having their first babies. It gives me hope that I still have time.

Doreen on

You go girl!! πŸ™‚ Congrats Halle!! The baby is going to be beautiful. πŸ™‚ Most of all I pray it will be healthy!

nanny on

I’m so happy for Halle after all the heartache she had for years. I’m just so giddy that she finally her wishes are coming true. I agree that baby is going to be gorgeous/handsome. (since we don’t know if it’s a boy or girl yet. She’s gonna be a great mom and I’m just so happy that her dream is coming true.

Sara on

I too hope she has a healthy pregnancy. As a fellow diabetic, I hope she at least considers sharing about her diabetes will affect her pregnancy. She she hasn’t really shared in the past, I doubt she will in the future, but a girl can hope! πŸ˜€

Rye on

CONGRATS TO THEM!!! I’m sure this baby is going to be just beautiful!!! I am very happy for them both! πŸ™‚ For some reason, I am feeling like it’s going to be a girl…but, I am ALWAYS wrong, so now I am thinking because I think it’s a girl, that it is definetly going to be a boy. lol.

yaosa on

I am sooooo happy for her! I’ve been waiting for this news for her and Gabriel ! What a lcuky and beautiful baby for sure he or she will be!

I look forward to watching her pregnancy style!

The only appropriate answer to such an incredibly rude and presumptuous question is “None of your business.”

That said, I am delighted for Halle and wish her a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery. She has been wanting a child for ages and I am sure the baby will be fantastically beautiful.

The prospective grandma must be ecstatic.

Dawna on

Oh that’s wonderful news! Congratulations to Halle and Gabriel and positive thoughts for a healthy and uncomplicated pregnancy.

Rebecca on

Congratulations to them! Halle seems like such a lovely person who’s had a string of bad luck in relationships, she deserves all the happiness in the world. This baby will be so cherished.

holly on

Im so happy for the both of them…I hope halle and the baby will be healthy

Brianne on

Congrats to them- I think she will be a wondeful mother- I’ve always been a fan of hers and she’s looked so much happier since she’s been with Gabriel. What a beautiful baby that is going to be!!! i can’t wait to see how great she looks as her belly grows.

i bet she’s due in mid-late march. I’m 5 months along and due right after new years with NR and CA

Evie on

Congratulations to them, wow this baby is going to be gorgeous.

Berry, 41, and her boyfriend, 32-year-old model Gabriel Aubry, met shooting a Versace ad in Los Angeles in November 2005 and first stepped out publicly three months later at the February opening of a Versace boutique in New York City.

eoinA on

Conratulations! I’m so happy for them πŸ™‚

Talulah on

Yeah, finally!!
I’m so happy 4 them!

Elies on

Ashley, I was wondering the same thing! She used to call India her daughter and because India doesn’t have another mother anymore. I believe she even adopted here. Does anyone know about this? Because she rarely speaks of India anymore.

Andrea on

I am so excited and happy for her!! She’s been wanting a child for so long, and now that she has such a great man, she can have a baby with him! I hope everything goes well in the pregnancy and during delivery seeing as she’s over 40 and diabetic. She will be a wonderful mother and I know she can’t wait until her beautiful baby is here. Wanting a child for so long makes you love and appreciate that child ever more! Congrats Halle!

Katie on

Awwww, I’m so happy for Halle! What great news. I’m sure her kid will be gorgeous. I’m sure she’ll also be a great mom. Congrats to her and Gabriel!

marie rizzo on

Wishing Halle the best of luck. My daughter also is expecting around the same time and also has diabetes. I’m praying for both of them.

Emma1231 on
