Halle Berry on Gabriel Aubrey: "He will be a wonderful father to our child"

Halleberry_161742_cbbActress Halle Berry, 41, and her partner, model Gabriel Aubrey, 31, are expecting their first child in March and the mom-to-be is not worried at all about the type of dad Gabriel will be.

Take it from me, he’s a wonderful man and he will be a wonderful father to our child.

Halle, who is currently promoting her new movie Things We Lost In the Fire, knew that she always wanted to be a mother and the movie only helped intensify that feeling.

I’ve wanted this for so long and I feel happier than I’ve ever felt before in my entire life. I knew from playing a mother in this movie and having two adorable, smart children around me all the time that I was meant to be a mother. It’s no mystery that right after we finished the movie it manifested itself in my life because I think I subconsciously knew, `Yes, I can do this. I’m really, really ready.’

The actress, who was diagnosed with adult diabetes, is using her time preparing to be a mother.

I’m just focusing on a healthy pregnancy and learning all I can about motherhood and getting the stroller and crib I’m going to need and all that kind of stuff. I want to keep working, but my dream is to become the mother I am dreaming to be and I believe I can be, so I’ll probably be working on that for the rest of my life.

Halle just seems so incredibly happy to be expecting. When you’ve wanted something for so long, you just want to share it with everyone. Here’s an example of a star who revealed her pregnancy early, but I heard her say on Tavis Smiley that the paps are stalking her more than ever. Maybe this is why J-Lo and Christina, et al, keep it quiet? It’s like with Salma Hayek, everywhere she went, the paps took a picture of her belly. I don’t know, I guess the paps will show up whether they announce it or not, hard to say.

I guess Halle will have to see a perinatologist during her pregnancy because of her diabetes, so she will have to take it easy. Much happiness to her!

I thought you’d like to know that Halle has type 1 diabetes which is normally diagnosed in children and is also called Juvenile Diabetes. It’s not common for adults to be diagnosed with type 1 but from what I have heard this is true for Halle. Type 2 is what you were referring to and can be helped with diet and exercise. Halle has always required insulin.

Is adult diabetes the same as type 2 diabetes? If so, wow, I would never expect Halle to have that.

There’s no such thing as adult diabetes. There is Type 1, typically diagnosed in children and so it used to be called childhood diabetes but can occur in adults; Type 2, which usually occurs in overweight people and typically in adults although now it is occuring in children as well; and Gestational Diabetes. I thought I had heard that Halle had Type 1 diabetes.
