Happy Wednesday Hump Day — also known to us as Celebrity Baby Bump Day! What a week for pregnant celebrities! Pregnant Halle Berry surprised us all by showing off her baby bump, as did Glee’s Heather Morris. Pregnant Kate Middleton looked radiant in a red coat, while Jenna Dewan-Tatum showed off her bare baby bump to Glamour. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott rounds out our list of cute pregnant celebrities of the week.
Halle Berry stunned and pleasantly surprised her fans when she announced she was pregnant! This will be the second child for the 46-year-old actress, who has a 5-year-old daughter named Nahla with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. This is her first child with her fiancé Olivier Martinez.
“This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth,“ she told reporter Alina Cho. “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.“
Berry showed off her baby bump on the red carpet in this gorgeous purple dress with Demarco diamond drop earrings (worth over $21,000!) and an IritDesign ring to the premiere of The Call in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Sources have said Berry is expecting a boy, but when asked she said, “I don’t know. But [the baby is] healthy.”
Because the chance of naturally getting pregnant at age 46 is around 0.01 percent or less, many have wondered whether Berry had some sort of fertility treatment.
“We don’t want the 38-year-old woman deferring childbearing to take this as proof that they can easily conceive naturally in years to come. When you hear of people in the public arena who are pregnant in their 40s, the obvious suspicion is that they’ve availed themselves of fertility treatment, but aren’t being transparent about it,” Dr. Joshua U. Klein, MD, medical director of Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York in Brooklyn told Health.com. “I’m not saying that’s what Halle Berry did, but the odds are against her having conceived naturally at her age.”
Either way, congratulations to Halle and Olivier and their baby!
