Five months after giving birth to Maceo-Robert, Halle Berry is back to work filming her new CBS television show Extant, premiering July 9.

The actress says one of the main reasons she decided to take on a TV role is so she can be closer to her 5-month-old son with husband Olivier Martinez and her 6-year-old daughter, Nahla Ariela.

“I no longer can afford to have the gypsy life,” she tells PEOPLE. “This [show] allows me to stay home and still do something really creative and cool that I love.”

The actress, 47, is also busy promoting her film Frankie & Alice and says thinking of the other working moms out there helps her get through the long days.

Halle Berry Nahla Big Sister to Maceo-Robert Splash News Online

After becoming a mother later in life to daughter Nahla, Halle Berry never believed more kids were in the cards for her.

But in July 2013, the actress married Olivier Martinez and the couple welcomed a son, Maceo-Robert, in October — an unexpected blessing that Berry never saw coming.

“I just feel great because I have another baby. I never thought that at my stage in life another baby — and a baby boy — was coming to me,” the Frankie & Alice star, 47, tells Extra.

Not only does she feel wonderful, but Berry — who showed off her svelte shape less than four months after childbirth — has already bounced back from her pregnancy.

She credits her quick turnaround to nursing and healthy eating habits.

“Every mother should breastfeed. It’s the quickest way to shed the initial weight and then you have to eat right,” she explains. Read More

Her X-Men alter ego controls the weather, but Halle Berry seems to have an even more amazing superpower: looking fitter than ever post-pregnancy.

The mother of two hit the red carpet at the Acapulco Film Festival on Wednesday — less than four months after giving birth to son Maceo-Robert.

Berry, 47, smoldered in a black-and-metallic AllSaints dress and her signature cropped hairdo. At the festival, she won the coveted Silver Jaguar Award. But we say her killer body-after-baby is the real prize.

The night marked Berry’s first public appearance since she and her husband, French actor Olivier Martinez, welcomed their baby boy on Oct. 5. He joined big sister Nahla Ariela, Berry’s 5½-year-old daughter with ex Gabriel Aubry.

We’re pretty sure Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez‘s son Maceo-Robert has everything he needs, but that doesn’t mean his parents’s friends aren’t excited to gift him luxe goodies to welcome him to the world.

And this luxe basket from Bellini is no exception. Worth over $500, it includes everything from Little Giraffe hooded towels and Barefoot Dreams‘s Monkey Pocket Buddy to Trumpette socks and aden + anais muslin blankets in soft grays and blues.

Halle Berry‘s big surprise has arrived!

Berry and her husband Olivier Martinez welcomed their first child together — a baby boy — on Saturday, Oct. 5 in Los Angeles, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The American actress and French actor, both 47, have named their son Maceo-Robert, a source close to the couple confirms to PEOPLE.

The “Maceo” part is said to be of Spanish origin — Martinez’s father, Robert Martinez, was a Spanish boxer — and means “gift of God.”

Berry — who is mom to 5½-year-old daughter Nahla Ariela from her previous relationship with Gabriel Aubry — has said that she didn’t expect to have a second child.

Great minds think alike — especially when you’re expecting. Just a few days apart, moms-to-be Halle Berry and Dania Ramirez wore the same tie-dye print maxi ($199) by Seraphine. And they both looked gorgeous.

Berry paired hers with a straw fedora and aviator sunglasses on Sept. 16 to walk daughter Nahla to her Studio City, Calif. school, while Devious Maids‘s star Ramirez donned the dress to her Sept. 21 baby shower in West Hollywood.

Made of silk, the chic gown can either be worn as a halter or strapless. Either way, the flowing chiffon fabric is guaranteed to beautifully drape your bump.

Twice As Nice: Nahla Aubry’s Pretty Dress

08/27/2013 at 02:00 PM ET

Nothing makes us smile more than adorable kid fashions. So you can imagine our glee when we spotted Halle Berry‘s little girl, Nahla, in her Lemon Loves Lime Fairy Petals dress (now $25, originally $58) on July 25 while hanging at L.A.’s Century City Mall with her mom and stepdad Olivier Martinez.

Pretty and super soft, the fun frock is part of Lemon Loves Lime‘s Spring 2013 collection and is made of 100 percent Supima cotton. Our fave feature is the multi-colored tiered skirt, which really takes it up a notch.

The 5-year-old loves the style so much she also has the pink version. On June 9, she wore it during a grocery shopping trip to Bristol Farms in Beverly Hills with red ballet flats and loose curls.
