Halle Berry is pregnant with her second child at the age of 46.
The Oscar winning actress who is already a mother of one is set to expand her family with fiance Olivier Martinez.
"I can confirm that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are expecting a child," Berry’s publicist said, but declined to offer any further details.
Entertainment website TMZ reports the actress is about three months pregnant, with speculation that the baby is a boy.
Five-year-old Nahla, Berry's daughter, was born to model father Gabriel Aubry who has fought for her custody in a bitter legal battle since her mother made the decision to move to France.
Although her age might be a limiting factor, Berry has previously spoken about expanding her family, with Nahla expressing desire for a little sister.
"That’s the thing. (My daughter) is asking me," Berry said during an interview on US talk show The Wendy Williams Show last year.
"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 thing, I know for sure! The other one we have to keep praying on'.
"What do you say to her when she wants that and can’t understand why God’s taking so long, you know?"
She also spoke about becoming a mother in her forties, saying she had no regrets about leaving having children until later in life.
"I'm a much better mother at 46, or 41 when I had [Nahla], than if I were 21 or 25," she said.
"I was just a little baby, just trying to figure it out, trying to figure out who I was, let alone having the responsibility of trying to help another little soul develop and grow.
"I’m so glad I waited."
Berry's partner, 47-year-old Martinez, confirmed the couple's wedding plans last March. It will be the actress' third marriage.
