Speaking with Ellen Degeneres on her talk show, Berry has revealed that when she fell pregnant with her son, Maceo Martinez, she was premenopausal, making it all the more incredible.

“I was, you know, on my way…this is probably way TMI [Too Much Information], but I was really, you know, kinda premenopausal so to have this happen was a huge [shock].

“I didn’t think it was possible at my age,” Berry said.

“‘Cause you’re like 65 right?” Degeneres quipped, prompting Berry to explain that at the age of 47, “They call it a geriatric pregnancy.”

Berry considers the child a miracle, saying that her six-year-old daughter, Nahla, “prayed and prayed for him, for like a year and a half, for a baby and a bunk bed. And she got both of those things.

“Only her prayers could have done this. I didn’t think it was possible at my age, honestly.”
