Halle Berry has been making her media rounds for her new television show “Extant”, about a female Astronaut who returns from a 12 month journey in space pregnant! Although this new sci-fi television series has a very interesting story line, everyone really wants to know about her new baby boy.

On Ellen’s couch, Halle  opened up about giving birth to her second baby Maceo , and what it was like giving birth at age 46. She joked that while in the hospital she got a glimpse of her medical chart and realized it said “geriatric pregnancy“.

She explained to Ellen;

“I didn’t think it was possible at my age…. I was, you know, on my way–this is probably way TMI–but I was really, you know, kind of pre-menopausal. So to have this happen was a huge.”

Halle went on to explain that this miracle pregnancy she believes was due to her daughter Nahla’s prayers asking God for a little brother or sister, “Only her prayers could have done this.”

“Two things that I swore I would never ever do again in life. I mean, I didn’t think it was possible to have another baby and I thought for sure I had a need never to get married again. So, I’ve learned never to say never,”

In July of 2013, Halle Berry wed her second husband French actor Olivier Martinez in a private ceremony.

Wondering what a geriatric pregnancy is, well it’s not a what it may sound like, it’s not your grandma having a baby. It’s when a woman who is 35 years old or older becomes pregnant. This was once an uncommon thing, but in today’s society 2 out of 10 pregnant women are now giving birth after the age of thirty.

Looking like a natural runner, Halle Berry was spotted getting some miles in while on set filming for Extant. Running may have been attributed to helping this actress get her pre-baby body back.  As far as her diet,  Halle has to stick to a strict high protein and low carb diet, avoiding sugary drinks due to her type 2 diabetes. The actress explained, she once passed out and was unconscious for a week due to her not taking care of her disease;

 

“One day, I simply passed out, and I didn’t wake up for seven days, which is obviously very serious.”

 

Wow!!! Now that’s serious. Happy you have it under control now Halle.
