Halle Berry on 'miracle' baby

Halle Berry

Halle Berry has revealed falling pregnant at 46 feels like "a miracle".

The actress united with other celebrities yesterday afternoon to rally support for the fight against women's cancers at the 20th Annual Entertainment Industry Foundation/Revlon Run/Walk in Los Angeles.

The 46-year-old took a moment out from the event to reflect on what her pregnancy means to her.

"I'm thinking that this is a miracle," Halle said to ET Online. "I feel really happy. It's one of the best things that happened in my life, for sure."

In April, rumours surfaced that Halle was expecting a boy with her fiancé Olivier Martinez. This will be Halle's second child as she already has a daughter, five-year-old Nahla, from a previous relationship. The Oscar-winning actress stressed how important it is for her to actively help raise funds for research to combat cancers.

"I've been touched by cancer in my life. I've lost loved ones," Halle said. "I've [known] women that have beaten the battle, so I'm encouraged by that. I think it's important to be a part of raising money and help raising awareness. It's women helping women and I really, really love that."

Halle co-hosted the charity event with actress Julie Bowen. The Modern Family star also took the opportunity to encourage people to participate in fund raisers.

"It's really important that people continue to support these 'un-sexy' diseases," Julie said. "It's not new. It's not bird flu; it's not SARS, and it still hasn't been cured and it kills millions and millions of women every year."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

You can communicate effectively about controversial topics like religion, politics and education. When you talk, people listen. Take this opportunity to lobby for changes to an outmoded institution. Making resources more readily available to the public will be a great use of your time. You're tired of seeing only the most privileged members of the community thrive. Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
