Berry and Martinez ‘stronger since pregnancy’
Halle Berry’s “emotional bond” with her fiancé Olivier Martinez has seemingly been strengthened since she got pregnant.
The 46-year-old star recently confirmed she is expecting her first child with actor Olivier Martinez. Halle admitted the pregnancy was the “biggest surprise of her life” and those close to the actress say the prospect of welcoming a baby into the world has brought the couple closer together.
“Halle had been trying to get pregnant with Olivier for a while and felt like a baby would really cement their relationship,” a source told British magazine Closer. “Olivier has always been amazing with [Halle’s daughter] Nahla, but the pregnancy has strengthened his emotional bond with Halle.”
The couple sparked baby rumours after Olivier appeared to be fiercely protective of Halle around paparazzi when they walked through a Los Angeles airport. The 47-year-old French star is overjoyed by Halle’s pregnancy and has vowed to be the best father possible.
“Olivier is determined to concentrate on Halle and being a good dad – he’s so protective and very excited,” the source added. “The first thing he did was buy a baby cot with a huge bow on it!”
Despite speculation suggesting that Halle was expecting a boy, the Oscar-winning star has insisted she doesn’t yet know the sex of the baby. She is believed to be around three months pregnant.
Halle already has a five-year-old daughter, Nahla, with her ex-partner Gabriel Aubry.
The star recently revealed Nahla can’t wait to meet her younger sibling.
"She has been praying for a baby sister - who knows what she's going to get - but she's been praying for a baby sister," Halle smiled.
"So a baby of any sort will just make her through the roof, she really wants to be a big sister."
