Halle Berry hoping for organic nursery

10/16/2007 at 03:46 PM ET

Hallebump2 First-time mom-to-be Halle Berry is beginning to plan her nursery, and the Oscar-winning actress is keeping the planet in mind.  At the premiere of her new film Things We Lost in the Fire last night, Halle said the baby’s room is "going to be organic and eco-friendly."

There are so many things out now that you can use…They even have organic disposable diapers…I’m going to really try hard to make it all organic!

At the after-party, Halle clutched a book of motherhood blessings given to her as a gift, and told reporters that her role as a mother in the film only reinforced her long-held belief that she was meant to be a mom, herself.

I do have a really strong maternal instinct and I really do need to have children.

In agreement is director Susanne Bier, who noted that Halle "had no issue with being [a] mother" in the film.   

The kids on-set were calling her mom. I think that proves it pretty much, that there was a natural thing where they were calling her mom.

The baby — due in March 2008 — will also be the first for Halle’s boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubry.

Doesn’t she already have a daughter? I could’ve sworn she adopted her ex’s daughter. Suddenly she’s forgotten that she’s already a mother?

Halle Berry says she intends to use “organic disposable diapers”. Does such a product exist? I’d also prefer to use organic disposable diapers, but I can’t find any. Seventh Generation has “Chlorine-Free” disposable diapers, but they do not claim to be organic. Any ideas what she’s talking about? Thanks!

Maybe she’s mistaken and thinks the Seventh Generation diapers are organic? She should really check into cloth diapers.

Emily- I believe the diapers Halle was talking about are G-diapers, which have a flushable, organic liner. There is a website for G-diapers, but I can’t remember the link.

I love that Halle Berry is going organic for her baby! Maybe she will try Green Apple Baby’s organic baby t-shirts!

@ Marissa I’m pretty sure you’re thinking of someone else!

Halle’s kid is gonna be gorgeous!
