Being Halle Berry requires a lot of multi-tasking.

As the star and executive producer of the new CBS drama Extant, the Academy Award-winning actress’ schedule is packed with meetings with her fellow producers and quality time with her children: daughter Nahla, 6, and 8-month old son Maceo.

“I love having my kids there [on set] because I am nursing my baby. To have him there is great for me,” Berry, 47, told PEOPLE at the Los Angeles premiere of her new show on Monday. “I love being involved all day.”

And Berry isn’t the only one who loves being involved.

“Every morning I can lose myself just by looking at my son,” her husband, French actor Olivier Martinez, said recently in an interview printed in German Grazia magazine.

Halle Berry: My Baby Boy Is ‘Sucking the Life Out of Me’

05/20/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

He may have been the answer to a prayer. But that doesn’t mean it’s always easy for Halle Berry with her 7-month-old son Maceo.

For one thing, the Oscar winner says there’s a marked difference in how her baby boy breastfeeds compared to how her 6-year-old daughter Nahla did when she was an infant.

“When I would put Nahla on the boob, she would go [Berry makes a pucker face and light sucking sound]. A nice little girly suck,” the X-Men: Days of Future Past star says in an appearance Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “With him, it’s like [she imitates a chomping suck]. He’s like sucking the life out of me! So I see the difference between boys and girls.”

“That was TMI in my opinion, but okay,” DeGeneres jokes.

“I just want everyone to know that I know the difference,” says Berry. “Boys and girls are different from the time they get here. They really, really are.”

Halle Berry is still basking in baby bliss since the arrival of her sonMaceo-Robert.

“[He’s] perfect, just perfect. More love, more joy — having a new baby in your family brings that,” the actress, 47, told PEOPLE at Saturday’s 21st annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women in Los Angeles.

But the sudden surge of love in her life is balanced out by Berry’s need for a good night’s rest.

“[A new baby means] less sleep,” she says. “And I’m working on the TV show, [Extant]. It’s a new grind, it’s a new rhythm. We’re trying to get used to that. We’re managing.”

One thing the new mom has already gotten used to? Her body after baby.

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 Is ‘Very Serious’ About Being a Big Sister

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.
