Halle Berry is pregnant with her first child, and according to People.com, the Oscar-winning actress is actually enjoying the morning sickness and hot sweats. Halle seems to be taking nothing for granted, since it took her and 32-year-old boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubry, a considerable time to conceive. "After about 35 tests, we finally got a positive test," Berry told viewers on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She also told Winfrey that she doesn't want to find out the sex of the baby.
According to Hollywood.com, the 41-year-old actress suffers from diabetes, which increases the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and birth defects, so she is seeking expert medical help to ensure that her unborn baby remains healthy.
Halle told InStyle.com that she's enjoyed pregnancy so much, she wants to stay pregnant forever, and spoke with unfettered enthusiasm about the world she's building for her child: a nursery of soothing neutral colors, old-fashioned wooden toys, and organic, chemical-free clothing. Pregnancy certainly looks good on her. With these two gorgeous parents, this promises to be one beautiful baby!
