Halle Berry 'bothered' by criticism

Nasty comments about falling pregnant at 46 are apparently "the last thing" Halle Berry needs right now.

The 46-year-old star recently announced she is expecting a child with her fiancé Olivier Martinez.

The actress - who already has five-year-old daughter Nahla with her ex Gabriel Aubry - was immediately hit by a backlash, claiming she was "too old" to be expecting.

"She wouldn't be human if things like this didn't bother her," a source revealed to British magazine Look.

"She got a similar horrible reaction when she got pregnant at 41 with Nahla. Ultimately, she's proud to have defied the odds and knows she'll be a great mom, but it is a scary time. She's aware that there are more dangers when having a child in her late 40s - the last thing she needs is to be reminded of that and called selfish by people who don't know anything about her situation."

Halle has had a rough time recently and was embroiled in a bitter custody battle with Gabriel when she announced her plans to move to France with Olivier.

The two men were even involved in a brutal altercation, but the matter was resolved and Halle agreed to stay in the US with Nahla.

Falling pregnant has been a joyous occasion for the star.

"It's been no secret that she and her fiancé, Olivier, wanted to extend their family. They've been engaged for over a year, and having a baby was always the priority. They weren't expecting it to happen so easily though. It's wonderful news," the insider smiled.
