Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez have a son

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez welcomed a son on Saturday, Oct. 5, in Los Angeles People reports.

The Oscar winner and the French actor, who are both 47, have been married since July. The new baby is Berry’s second child—she has a 5-year old daughter Nahla with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.

Back in April, Berry spoke to CNN about her pregnancy. “I feel fantastic. This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth. 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,” she said.

Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner testify in support of Calif. paparazzi bill

Actresses Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner are urging California lawmakers to support legislation that would impose tougher penalties on paparazzi who harass celebrities and their children.

The stars testified Tuesday before the Assembly Judiciary Committee on SB606. The bill would change the definition of harassment to include photographing a child without the permission of a legal guardian.

It was Berry’s second state Capitol appearance on the measure. Berry, who is pregnant, told lawmakers the constant presence of photographers has made her daughter scared to go to school.

Garner choked up describing how paparazzi aggressively follow her and her three children daily.

Media organizations are concerned the bill from Democratic Sen. Kevin de Leon of Los Angeles will interfere with news gathering. SB606 passed and heads to the Appropriations Committee.

Halle Berry marries Olivier Martinez

Halle Berry, 46, has married French actor Olivier Martinez, 47, according to a French news source cited by People. (The actress’ publicist did not immediately respond to an email request for confirmation.)

The couple reportedly wed Saturday in the Paris suburb of Vallery with approximately 60 guests in attendance. Berry and Martinez met on the set of Dark Tide (2012) and announced last April that they’re expecting their first child together, a boy, in early fall. This is the third wedding for Berry, who was previously married to baseball player David Justice and musician Eric Benét. She has a five-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey. Martinez, who had a long courtship with singer Kylie Minogue, has never been married before. Berry’s next big-screen appearance will be in X-Men: Days of Future Past, currently slated for May 2014.

Halle Berry describes daughter's paparazzi harassment

With dozens of journalists tailing her every move, Academy Award-winner Halle Berry appeared at the California Capitol on Tuesday to testify for a bill that would limit the ability of paparazzi to photograph the children of celebrities and public figures.

“My daughter doesn’t want to go to school because she knows ‘the men’ are watching for her,” the actor told the Assembly Committee on Public Safety. “They jump out of the bushes and from behind cars and who knows where else, besieging these children just to get a photo.”

Berry, who is pregnant, said she was speaking in favor of the anti-harassment bill by Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, as a “mother of a daughter and the baby boy in my belly.”

“If it passes, the quality of my life and my children’s lives will be dramatically changed,” she said.

Halle Berry's ex claims Olivier Martinez threatened to kill him

Halle Berry’s ex-boyfriend claims the actress’s fiance threatened to kill him during a Thanksgiving confrontation that left him with a broken rib, bruised face and under arrest.

Gabriel Aubry’s claims are included in court filings that led a judge Monday to grant a restraining order against actor Olivier Martinez, who is engaged to the Oscar-winning actress.

Aubry, 37, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after his confrontation with Martinez on Thursday, but he states in the civil court filings that he was not the aggressor and that he was threatened and attacked without provocation.

Halle Berry's ex arrested after fight at her house

Halle Berry’s ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry was arrested for investigation of battery Thursday after he and the Oscar-winning actress’s current boyfriend got into a fight at her Hollywood Hills home, police said.

Aubry, 37, was booked for investigation of a battery, a misdemeanor, and released on $20,000 bail, according to online jail records. He’s scheduled to appear in court Dec. 13.

Aubry came to Berry’s house Thanksgiving morning and police responded to a report of an assault, said Los Angeles Police Officer Julie Boyer. Aubry was injured in the altercation and was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.

Emails sent to Berry’s publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan, and Aubry’s family law attorney, Gary Fishbein, were not immediately returned.

Berry and Aubry have been involved in a custody dispute involving their 4-year-old daughter, Nahla. The proceedings were sealed because the former couple are not married. Both appeared in the case as recently as Nov. 9, but neither side commented on the outcome of the hearing.

Berry has been dating French actor Olivier Martinez, and he said earlier this year that they are engaged.
