The Oscar-winner and her fiancé, Olivier Martinez, are expecting their first child together, and—as E! News revealed last week—the actress is pregnant with a boy and is reportedly about 12 weeks along.
Just days after word spread that Berry will be giving her 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, a little sibling, the star is speaking out for the first time about being on the baby way once again—an experience, she says, that’s been both immensely joyous and tremendously shocking.
“I feel fantastic,” the 46-year-old tells CNN.
“This has been the biggest surprise of my life to tell you the truth,” she adds. “I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.”
Berry, however, played it coy when it came to talking about the baby’s gender.
“I don’t know, I don’t know,” she said when asked whether she was having a son, stressing that all she wanted was for the baby to be “healthy.”
