Olivier and Halle having a boy

Olivier Martinez has revealed he and Halle Berry are expecting a son, and he will be born in America.

A representative for the 46-year-old Oscar-winning actress confirmed in April that she is expecting a baby with her French actor fiance.

Now Olivier has told People at the opening night of the Champs-Elysees Film Festival in Paris: "My son will be an American, but I remain French."

The 47-year-old actor has lived in the US with Halle for the last two years.

Speaking about the difference between the two cultures, he said: "I'm French - it's less important. Meaning, I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there - but I'm still a foreigner.

"My son will be an American," he proudly repeated

Halle already has a five-year-old daughter Nahla, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.

A judge in the custody dispute between the actress and Canadian model Gabriel, prevented Halle and Olivier from moving to France.

Gabriel and Halle settled their bitter custody battle last November, soon after Gabriel and Olivier got into a fight that left the model with a battered face and Olivier with a hand injury. Gabriel was arrested but not prosecuted.
