*Update from E News!*
E! News has confirmed that the Oscar winner is pregnant with her and fiancé Olivier Martinez’s first child, and that she’ll be adding a baby boy to her growing brood!
The actress’ rep told E! News, “We can confirm that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are expecting a child. We will not be commenting on or confirming any additional details.”
A source told E! News how the parents-to-be are feeling right now.
“Halle and Olivier are really excited,” the source said. “It’s a blessing. They can’t wait to have a baby together.”
As reported by TMZ, a source “connected” to the actress and her fiancé, Olivier Martinez, say that she’s indeed pregnant, and not just pregnant, but allegedly around three months along. But TMZ says that through some other digging they did, she just might be further along. Somehow the source claims they also already know the sex of the child, and she could be having a boy. If factual, this will of course be the 46-year-old’s second child after having Nahla Aubry with former boyfriend and model, Gabriel Aubry.
This tidbit of information is definitely interesting seeing how she was just talking about Nahla praying every evening for a baby sister while talking with Wendy Williams:
“That’s the thing. [My daughter is] asking me,” Berry admitted. “Every night we pray to God, and she’s so sweet. She says, ‘God, please bring me a bunk bed and a baby sister.’ And I say, ‘I can do one of those things, I know for sure! The other one we have to keep praying on.’ What do you say to her when she wants that and can’t understand why God’s taking so long, you know?”
She might not be getting a little sister, but a little brother is just as good. Berry still seems mad tiny to be pregnant, but if she is with child, we’re very happy for homegirl, because she seems to be very happy with Martinez. Congratulations to the couple!
Sorry Olivier–Congrats Gabriel: Halle Berry Says One Way Or Another She Will Move To France…But Will Wait Until Nahla Is 18
It was just last year that Halle Berry and her ex, Gabriel Aubry, were in court battling over her desire to move their daughter, Nahla, to France. Of course, Berry is engaged to Olivier Martinez, and he is a native of France, which is one reason why she wanted to make to the move. However, Berry also claimed that she was hoping to head to Europe after feeling less and less safe in Los Angeles due to paparazzi interference at her daughter’s school and also because her former stalkers were released from jail in 2012 (one who had escaped from a psychiatric hospital was caught). But Aubry felt that her hope to move with their child was just an attempt to keep him away from his daughter. In the end, after a bitter physical altercation between Aubry and Martinez, and a judge telling her no to the idea of heading to France, both Berry and Aubry have come to a civil custody agreement, and the drama that was going on between them and all over the news last year has finally ceased. Well, as far as we can tell.
But Berry isn’t giving up on her plans to leave with her beau for France, the only change is that she will wait until Nahla is old enough to make her own decisions about where she wants to live before she moves away. In an interview with UK publication, HELLO! magazine, Berry set the record straight and says she probably won’t head to Europe until Nahla is 18 and is getting ready for college, but when she goes, that’s where she’ll stay:
“When Nahla turns 18, she’ll be legally able to make her own decisions about where she wants to be and I think that then, when she’s off on her own, we’ll move there. It’s where I want to end my days, that’s for sure.”
She also says that her man, Martinez, has told her not to bother with trying to learn French now, because once she’s surrounded by French culture, things will come naturally.
“I was told very lovingly by him not to work on it too hard now but to wait until we get to live there. Because for me, at my age and with all that I already have on my plate, trying to learn French is probably one of the hardest things I could possibly do. He thinks I’ll have an easier time when we’re living there and immersed in the culture – if we ever get to go that is.”
So until Nahla’s old enough to make up her own mind and go her own way, mother and daughter will be in LA. And if Martinez can wait 13 years, the actor and his gorgeous leading lady will be able to have the rendezvous’ in France they want for good. Until then…
TMZ is reporting that Halle Berry has “very quietly” listed her Hollywood Hills home for $15 million.
The property, where her fiancé Olivier Martinez and baby daddy Gabriel Aubry got into a violent fight on Thanksgiving Day, is described as a 5-bedroom, 5,900 sq. ft. Tuscan-style estate, with a spacious backyard, a 1,400 sq. ft. guest house, a pool, spa, multiple fireplaces and picturesque landscaping.

Finding Good Love Is Hard For Halle–And Everybody Else: Why The Grass Isn’t Always Prettier On The Other Side
This whole Halle Berry, Gabriel Aubry and Olivier Martinez triangle is the stuff of daytime soap operas, Tyler Perry scripts and late night Nollywood films (yes, Nollywood, not Hollywood, I’m a HUGE fan). I’ve been popping popcorn for two days now. But it also confirms something I have suspected for a long time: the grass ain’t always greener on the other side.
Halle Berry has managed to obliterate everything some of us want to believe about modern dating, particularly black women and dating. No, despite ever growing popular opinion, going white isn’t always right, and can end just as bad as (if not worse) a relationship with a black, brown, green or purple man. And no, dating a younger man doesn’t guarantee easier relations either. Oh yeah, and being pretty doesn’t shield you from ugly drama either.
I mean, this is Halle Berry we are talking about. Halle. Berry. She is, by all generalizations, the ideal standard of beauty. Matter of fact, in 2003, she was named Most Beautiful Woman in the World by People, which is a huge feat for any woman, let alone a woman of color. There are not too many men – and some women too – in this world, who would say they would kick Halle Berry out of bed. But even despite her international allure, she stays in more relationship drama than a little bit.
David Justice? Wesley Snipes? Eric Benet? Gabriel Aubry? Seriously, if Halle Berry can’t get her love life straight, what hope is there for the rest of us? It just shouldn’t be this hard out here for a beautiful pimp.
There’s a lot of research, as well as general belief, which suggests that good-looking people enjoy many perks in life, chief among them is having no difficulty attracting potential partners. However, beauty can be a double-edged sword and what works at attracting a partner can also work at keeping them away too. Take for instance the alpha man, motivated by his own ego, who sees a beautiful woman as just a sexual conquest or a trophy as opposed to a long term relationship. On the flip side of that is the gentle beta man, who while motivated by the heart and emotional intimacy, may feel too intimidated by a beautiful woman to act upon his feelings.
Certainly, many beautiful women have found their soul mates, however being beautiful is not a guarantee that love and happiness will be mutually exclusive. As the old saying goes, which has floated from the lips of many men I’ve met over the years; show me a beautiful woman and I’ll show you someone who is sick of tapping that. And just like the rest of us average looking plain Johns and Janes, beautiful people have to work at relationships too. And they also make really bad choices in mates as well.
Judging by the severity of Aubry’s face, I think Martinez might have some anger management issues. I’ve actually seen people, who stole something from someone, not have their faces jacked up the way Aubry’s is thanks to Halle’s new man. Probably the biggest saving grace for the beautiful is that if one relationship fails, there are never short of other potential partners to take his or her place. And one thing I can say about Berry is that despite the drama, and what they might say about her when news stories like the Thanksgiving Berry brawl surface, there is no shortage of men willing to roll around in the trenches for her affection. So she will be all right.
Any awkwardness that occurred at your Thanksgiving dinner table likely had nothing on what went down at Halle Berry’s LA home yesterday. In one of the worst celebrity Holiday custody exchanges ever, Halle Berry’s fiance, Olivier Martinez, 46, and the father of her child,36-year-old Gabriel Aubry, ended up in the ER after they got into a Thanksgiving tussle at her home. Gabriel was subsequently arrested and booked in jail, and I’m going to assume when all was said and done nobody had any Turkey.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Gabriel showed up to Halle’s house with Nahla for a custodial hand-off. We’re told Gabriel was still in the motor court (a rich person’s word for a giant driveway) when Olivier walked up to him and said, “We have to move on.”
According to witnesses, Gabriel then pushed Olivier and threw a punch at his face, but Olivier blocked it and the punch struck him in the shoulder instead. We’re told Gabriel then pushed Olivier to the ground, and Olivier cold-cocked him in the face, and a struggle ensued, ending with Olivier pinning Gabriel to the ground.
In the struggle, Gabriel suffered a broken rib, contusions on his face, and possibly a more serious head injury. Olivier may have broken his hand and suffered neck injuries as well. There are conflicting accounts as to whether Gabriel was rendered unconscious in the fight.
Police were called and Olivier made a citizen’s arrest for battery against Gabriel. Gabriel was escorted to the ER and, ironically, Olivier went to the same ER an hour later. The two were just down the hall from each other.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … a judge has issued an emergency protective order, which requires Gabriel to stay 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier, and Nahla.
Am I wrong for thinking, Gabriel, that’s what you get for trying to roll up on somebody for a Turkey Day beatdown?
According to TMZ’s timeline, at around 3:30 pm PST, Gabriel and Olivier were released from the hospital. Gabriel was taken into custody, while Olivier went back to Halle’s. Two hours later, Gabriel was booked for misdemeanor battery and his bail was set at $20,000. Apparently he had it because just one hour after that he was released from custody.
I have no idea how this whole situation is going to be explained, but the good thing is, sources told TMZ that Halle rushed Nahla inside the house when her dad and soon-to-be step-father starting going at it. I’m pretty sure the Berry thanksgiving was still horribly ruined but at least the little girl didn’t witness any of the brutality. At this point I’m still shaking my head at two grown a** men going at it in the driveway. Celebrities are not immune to family foolery on holidays.
After months and months of reports saying that Halle Berry was looking to pack up her little girl, Nahla, grab her boo Olivier Martinez, and head to Paris where the couple would live together, eat eclairs, get fat and live happily ever after, that wonderful Parisian dream has been shut down. According to TMZ, the judge in her custody case ruled that she can’t separate the 4-year-old from her father by moving her to Paris permanently (though Gabriel Aubry could have always visited, but who wants to do all that painstaking traveling across the world?).
While some folks speculated that Halle wanted to take Nahla to France because she felt Gabriel was an unfit parent, she had actually been arguing in court that paparazzi in Los Angeles had basically been terrorizing her and little Nahla, and she didn’t want the her daughter to grow up in such a stressful environment. According to People, France has stronger paparazzi laws in place, and aside from it being back in Olivier’s stomping grounds, that’s why she wants to settle down over there. Sounds like a pretty good argument. I’m sure you remember the photos of Halle going bananas on some paparazzi who were trying so hard to take photos of Nahla at her school–the thirst is real for some pictures out here. And Halle had allegedly said that it wasn’t about taking anybody away from anyone, she just thought France would be safer (from stalkers and paparazzi) and would benefit all parties. On Friday, a judge disagreed. The very specifics of the court ruling haven’t been released as of yet, but what we do know is that Berry is going to have to try and make the best of a messy situation in LA (or she can always move to the country…?). But whatever she does, Nahla has to stay here. For now.
Well, it seems that we could’ve just asked Olivier Martinez to confirm rumors of he and Halle’s engagement months ago. While promoting his new restaurant in South Beach Villa Azur, the French actor confirmed to reporters that he and Halle Berry were indeed engaged. His exact words were “Yes, of course it’s true.”
Berry was seen rocking an emerald engagement ring in January, although talk of an engagement were shot down in the media and was soon eclipsed by the ongoing news spectacle provided by the courtroom fights between Berry and her ex-boyfriend/baby daddy Gabriel Aubry.
Hopefully, Berry can settle things with her ex soon so she can plan her third stroll down the aisle. We can’t wait to see the on-screen chemistry between these two in the film “Dark Tide,” which brought these two together, and we certainly can’t wait to see if the third time will be the charm for Berry.

It’s no secret Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry are having a difficult time co-parenting their 3-year-old daughter, Nahla, but Halle has taken a page straight out of the bitter baby mama handbook with new paperwork she’s filed.
According to TMZ, Halle is asking the court for permission to move to France with Nahla, and of course Gabriel is not having it. Her ex-man says he feels the move is punitive and is only being done to stop him from having any contact with his daughter, plus he isn’t thrilled with the fact that Halle will be living with her French boo Olivier Martinez.
While I’m sure that’s part of Halle’s motivation to move, you can’t help but see this as a ploy to keep Nahla away from Gabriel, especially pending the outcome of child endangerment accusations. But with speculation that those allegations were made up, plus this plan to move abroad, it seems like Halle wants to pretend like Gabriel isn’t her child’s father at all. As tempting as it may be, you should never use your child as a pawn to get back at an old lover.
What do you think about Halle’s sudden wish to move to France? Do you think the judge should grant her permission?
