Oscar winner Hollywood star Halle Berry has confirmed she's three months pregnant with her first child.
The actress sent Nancy O'Dell, a US TV news anchor, an email to confirm the good news she's expecting boyfriend Gabriel Aubry's child.
New mum O'Dell broke the news on TV show Access Hollywood on Tuesday - hours after reports spread that Berry 's baby had halted production on the set of her new film 'Tulia'.
In the email, Berry wrote: "Yes, I am three months pregnant! Gabriel and I are beyond excited, and I've waited a long time for this moment in life, reports Ireland Online.
Berry , 41, and Aubry, 32, first met in November 2005 while shooting a Versace ad in Los Angeles and have been going strong since. Despite their relationship and gestational collaboration, there's been no word of marriage yet. With Berry 's lousy marital track record, it's possible the couple won't tie the knot at all.
Berry, who was first married and divorced to baseball player David Justice, had a taste of motherhood with her second husband R&B singer Eric Benet. She reportedly became close to her stepdaughter, Benet's teenage daughter India .
Divorced yet again from Benet, Berry is currently happy dating Aubrey, who is a fellow beautiful person on People magazine's annual list. She's been practicing her caretaking skills on her cat Playdough, whom she adopted from her infamous film "Catwoman."
Berry won a lead actress Oscar for 2001's "Monster's Ball." She next stars opposite Benicio Del Toro in "Things We Lost in the Fire," which opens nationwide on Friday, Oct. 26, reports Charlotte Observer.
