It’s time for the blue teddy bears and blue ballons, as one of the sexiest women on the planet, Halle Berry is going to have a baby boy and her fiancé Oliver Martinez has confirmed it.This will be Berry’s second child, but it is her first with Martinez. We don’t know yet how Halle’s daughter Nahla Ariela Aubry has taken the news that she is getting a new brother.
Martinez spoke to People magazine about being a father; being a world citizen and about his boy’s citizenship. He said, “My son will be an American, but I remain French.”
Although Martinez principally lives in California with the 46 year-old actress, the couple are at this moment in Paris. The 47 year-old French actor revealed the gender of their “baby bump” while he was talking about the red carpet event that will be on the opening of night of the Champs-Elysées Film Festival on Thursday.
The French actor joked with reportes about his previous experiences of treading the red carpet. Smiling, he said, “It’s not the first one, not the last. It’s part of the job.”
Berry’s fiancé went on to note the differences between press in America and France and how they see him as an actor. He’s lived in the United States for the last two years with his film star fiancée. He explained, “I’m French — it’s less important. Meaning, I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there — but I’m still a foreigner.”
The 46-year old Halle Berry announced her pregnancy in the first part of April and now Oliver has confirmed that they already know what the baby’s gender will be and he appears to be very pleased with the news that it’s a boy.
In case there was any doubt about where he really feels his home is, the repetition of his statement that, “My son will be an American,” shows that despite his “foreign status” in America, he feels that the USA is his new homeland.
Halle Berry and Oliver Martinez arrived in Paris on Tuesday. The couple are expected to walk the Champs-Elysées Festival’s red carpet together on Thursday evening, where Berry will be the special guest of honour.
Berry began dating the French actor Olivier Martinez after having met him while filming Dark Tide in South Africa in 2010. The couple got engaged in March 2012. Then in early April 2013, Berry’s representative confirmed that, at 46 years of age, the actress was three months pregnant with Martinez’s child, a boy.
The politically active actress has fought for environment issues and it looks like she wants her daughter Nahla Ariela Aubry and her new baby brother to have a clean and safe world to grow up in.
So before they’ve even “hit” the red carpet together, Martinez has confirmed that his and Halle Berry’s new baby is going to be a boy. We wish them all the best in the next few months until Halle gives birth in the fall of this year.
