LOS ANGELES: Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry is expecting her second child at the age of 46 with French actor fiance Olivier Martinez, her spokeswoman said Friday.

Celebrity news website TMZ reported that she is three months pregnant and that Berry knew its sex, a boy.

“I can confirm that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are expecting a child,” Meredith O'Sullivan told AFP, but added: “We will not be commenting on or confirming any additional details.”

Martinez, who is 47, confirmed the couple's wedding plans last March.

The couple met each other in 2010 on the set of the film “Dark Tide.”

Berry has been married twice before and has a five-year-old daughter, Nahla, with Canadian model Gabriel Aubry.

Since Berry and Aubry's separation, they have repeatedly tussled over access and visiting rights for their daughter.

On Thanksgiving Day last November, Martinez and Aubry brawled on the doorstep of Berry's home after her ex turned up to see his daughter.

Aubry was left with cuts and bruises including a black eye.

Berry was the first African-American actress to win a best lead actress Academy Award in 2002 for “Monster's Ball.”

Her latest movie is the thriller “The Call.”

Martinez's last movie was “Dark Tide,” released in March 2012 in the United States.

Interesting headline; "expecting new baby at 46". Have mothers started to expect old babies as well??

Developing their careers first and then having babies at age of 40+. Again, when their babies grow up, parents will be old and their babies will be then be looking towards their careers development and these partent will be left alone in their luxury homes (sitting along and expecting a call from their babies).
