Halle Berry and daughter Nahla


Halle Berry is pregnant with her second child.

According to TMZ, the Oscar-winning actress, who turns 47 this August, is expecting with her French fiancé Olivier Martinez. The TMZ report went on to say that Berry is three months along in her pregnancy and that the new baby will be a boy.

The entertainment magazine Us Weekly cited an unnamed source as saying Berry was "elated" to discover she was pregnant.

The new baby boy will join big sister Nahla, Berry's five-year-old daughter with Montreal-born model Gabriel Aubry. Berry and Martinez, 47, have been engaged since early 2011 but have yet to set a wedding date.

Berry, who earned a Best Actress Oscar for the 2001 film Monster's Ball, has made no secret in recent months of her desire to have another child.

During an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show last fall, Berry revealed, "My daughter is asking me. 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'."
