Motherhood will be Halle Berry's next role thanks to her boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubry.
"Yes, I am three months pregnant," confirmed the Oscar winner on "Access Hollywood" on Tuesday, Sept. 4. "Gabriel and I are beyond excited and I've waited a long time for this moment in my life."
TMZ.com reports that production on Berry's upcoming film "Tulia" will delay its scheduled October start date due to its star's delicate condition.
In the film, Berry was set to play the lead attorney for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational fund who investigates an infamous drug bust in which 46 black men in Tulia, Texas were arrested under suspcious conditions in 1999. Based on the testimony of a crooked cop, the men were all taken in a sting even though no money, drugs or illegal weapons were found on any of the suspects.
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.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
