Halle Berry Shows Off Her Growing Baby Bump
Halle Berry is bumpin’ and proud, y’all! The mama-to-be, who revealed she’s expecting a baby with Olivier Martinez just last Friday, stepped out for the premiere of her new flick, The Call, in a one-strapped fitted purple gown that debuted her adorable bump!
Already mama to sweet little girl Nahla (from a previous relationship with Gabriel Aubry), the two-time mama-to-be is not shy about showing off her changing shape — or just how shocking her pregnancy was! She admitted her pregnancy was “the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth. Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful,” in an interview with CNN, which aired last night.
While the rumor mill is swirling with stories that Halle’s due with a baby boy, the star stayed mum on baby’s sex, only saying, “I don’t know, I don’t know. But the baby is healthy!”
She said that her pregnancy has also reminded her that many expectant moms across the world struggle to feed themselves and their children in utero. Halle said of her work with the United Nations World Food Program, “Especially now, being a pregnant woman and already having a child… it’s so important what happens to the baby while they’re in utero. And the first 1,000 days is fundamental. Good nutrition during that time period is fundamental for your baby to develop properly and normally.” Sounds like she’s done her research!
Though parenthood is her favorite role, Halle gushed about her work to fight hunger, saying, “I’m a mom, and that’s first and foremost, but it gives me another reason to exist, another purpose. And if I know that I’m helping one person every day in some way, that really makes me feel good, and that’s a legacy that I can leave to my children.” It’s also sets a great example for her children, too, and it’s something they can grow to be a part of.
