It's official! In an email to her fans and the world, Oscar-winning Actress Halle Berry has confirmed that she's expecting her first child with her model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
"Yes, I am three months pregnant!" she announced in an e-mail. “I are beyond excited, and I've waited a long time for this moment in life. Now the next seven months will be the longest of my life!"
Just three weeks ago, the Oscar winner's rep dismissed a report in the National Enquirer that said she was awaiting a visit from the stork. It was the latest denial for Berry, who has pooh-poohed pregnancy rumblings countless times, although her recent predilection for roomy, belly-concealing clothes has had the rumor mill in overdrive.
No word on whether she's expecting a boy or a girl, although TMZ.com reported back in May that she shelled out more than $1,000 at a Los Angeles baby boutique for items geared toward the feminine set, including pink organic footie pajamas.
Unfortunately, Berry's personal milestone is creating problems professionally. Production on her forthcoming flick "Tulia," set to be directed by John Singleton starring her "Monster's Ball Billy Bob Thornton has been put on hold because of the bun in her oven.
