Halle Berry @ Oprah

Halle Berry @ Oprah

Mommy-to-be Halle Berry shows off her baby bump on Tuesday’s episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

On trying to have a baby with model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry for some time: “I’m sort of superstitious, so I saved all of the negative tests in a drawer. Don’t ask! I don’t know why, but I did. … After about 35 tests, we finally got a positive test.”

On when Halle passed the pregnant test: “While I was trying to get pregnant, we tried really hard, so it was a lot of staying home and just doing what you do. … I was watching a lot of [daytime] television and—don’t judge me for this—Maury Povich. … It was about, ‘You are the father. You’re not the father.’ … So what the women do when they find out he’s not the daddy, they run off the stage, right? They run to the back. I don’t know why, but they run to the back. So when we got the positive test—Gabriel was downstairs in the den—I ran upstairs! I got up there, and I thought, ‘I’ve been watching too much Maury!”

On the fashion shoot for a Versace ad where Halle met Gabriel, who is 10 years her junior: “There were, like, just pheromones flying off the walls.”

On Gabriel having so much integrity: “He does what he says he’s going to do. He’s very honest. I’ve learned to really appreciate honesty, even when you’re saying what I don’t want to hear, because it’s the truth. I think I used to like hearing what I wanted to hear, and not necessarily the truth. He’s always his authentic self, never worried about being judged. He doesn’t care what anybody thinks of who he is. To walk with that kind of confidence, … and with integrity, I know he has ability to love me, love our children, and he will do that.”

On having publicly said she she had no interest in ever walking down the aisle again after her second marriage ended in divorce: “What Gabriel and I have decided is we will just redefine marriage for ourselves. You know, that paper isn’t worth anything to me anymore. … I don’t want to do that again, so we have spent a lot of time talking about how can we redefine this. There’s all kinds of ways to commit to one another that doesn’t have to involve the government. I feel more married in a way than I ever have in two marriages before.”

On Gabriel being her spiritual partner: “We view life the same way. He really understands the spiritual connection is so much more important than the paper and the pomp and the circumstance and the ceremony. And that feels important to us.”

Also on today’s show: Halle‘s co-star in Things We Lost in the Fire, Benicio Del Toro. Halle plays Audrey, a mother of two trying to cope with the sudden loss of her husband. Benicio plays Jerry, her dead husband’s oldest friend—a heroin addict she’s always detested for his weakness. Together, the widow and troubled junkie struggle to heal.

    first !!

  • Jaxon

    I’m so happy for her, she has wanted a baby for a long time. I hope everything goes well and she has a healthy, happy baby soon.

  • Milli

    Good for u Halle, but saving those tests in your house is kinda disgusting. Didn’t you pee on them? So u are basically saving your own pee!!! Ewwww….

  • fresh

    Im really happy for her. And she’s in a movie with Benicio so that usually means it’ll be good.

    Ha! Im not the only one who watched Maury’s “Your not the father!” lol

  • Spay/Neuter

    Congrats. Halle !!!!!!! you will be the best mom Hollywood has ever seen ;) and the baby is going to be a masterpiece too ~~

    * Excellent gene pool *

  • lilo

    She looks radiant! wonderful!

  • lilo

    she looks radiant and beautiful; pregnancy really fits her!

  • Flisbeth

    Good for her

  • MMM

    She bores me and her movies stink.

  • david beckham lookalike

    She’s blooming!

  • poo

    never trust old women who keep their hair long.
    most of them have serious issues with their age…

  • black

    Good for her- I really wish her all the best.

  • Ha!

    Pregnancy seems to agree with her. It’s going to be a beautiful baby! It’s always nice to see someone who has wanted children so much finally get what they prayed for.

    Poo – What a weird thing to post. Why would any of us worry about trusting her, we’re never going to meet her much less have any kind of relationship with her that would involve trust. And she’s not exactly what I would consider old.

  • BBperfume

    yada yada yada ! I hate it when celebrities are trying to hard to gove the best monologies concerning their love life! Halle’s such a bore lately, and long hair hide all her best facial fetaures.. She’s lost her appeal. Gone are the dayz when she was soo hot with short hair and the orange bikini in Bond. I really have lost interest after seeing her mediocre acting in Perfect stranger!

  • A Certain Smile

    She looks great. Any of us could only wish we look that good when we get that “old”. This new movie looks like it will be good but as a small independent film probably won’t make that much money.
    So happy for her and wish her all the best w/ all that is going on around her.

  • Clones

    I have lost interest in Halle when she became Angelina’s personal parrot…It’s so obvious….

  • FRenchy

    Good for her. Can’t wait for her to ditch the long hair and go back to the trademark “Halle” haircut. I’m looking more forward to hearing and seeing Benicio Del Toro.

  • Debbie

    I wish Halle and Gabriel the very best and much happiness with their child.

    Poo: Does Halle actually look old to you? 40 is not old. I think she looks gorgeous – as always, and probably will still look great when she’s 80.

  • poo

    her and demi are they same type of selfish, washed up hollywood woman, desperate to stay young with lots of surgery & much younger hotter boy toys and having babies past their expiration date. 40 is too old to have a baby. include her diabetes and you have a slim chance for a healthy child.

  • curious

    what does Angie have with this thread,are you so desperate to bring her name in every hate her just because she decided to have baby with her haters are pathetic

    I love Halle and Angelina both and I wish Halle best during her pregnancy,it will be a very cute baby as her mom is.

  • pancakebottom

    She is “high risk” but I know she’ll do her best to stay fit and healthy.
    I like her better with short hair…still beautiful though.



  • kat

    yay for her and gabriel! congrats halle



  • kira

    Congratulations, Halle and Gabriel! Just knew Oprah would have her on at the appropriate time….Oprah probably feels like a proud grandmother! Halle and Gabriel will be wonderful and loving parents–a beautiful gift on behalf of the world.

  • Mimi

    She looks great! I’m happy to see a mature woman who’s lived life, made her mistakes, learned from them, and picked herself up having the baby she’s wanted so badly!

    For those of you who say that 40 is too old…i would much rather see Halle Berry being a mother than a 25-yr old idiot like Britney Spears. Those 2 Federline kids would’ve been so lucky to have halle as a mother instead of britney.


    by the way…she’s so tiny and pretty!!!

  • Ruth

    Halle looks wonderful and I hope that she will have a good pregnancy and safe birth. Lovely to see Benicio on the program. He is a fabulous actor who manages to keep right out of the celebrity limelight. “Things We Lost In the Fire” should be a great movie.

  • jeri

    What nice things to say about her man. Anyone wondering why she’s with Gabriel – it’s obvious. He has special qualities and an honest character. They don’t want to marry, but I hope they will one day.

  • Jennie

    i can’t wait to see their baby, she looks great, what a cute looking baby they’ll have.

  • ras

    Halle is a selfish and materialistic woman. It will be interesting to see if she even speaks about having diabetes on Oprah. Does Halle have Type 1 diabetes or Type 2 diabetes? She never comes out and speaks the truth and People Magazine has published conflicting stories on her health status. It would be so admirable of her to step forward and use her fame for someone besides herself on an ongoing basis. She does one print ad and attends one ball a year and considers that as helping the “cause.” She could be used in Washington, DC to lobby on Capitol Hill for more funding and Mary Tyler Moore could certainly use her help. John Madden’s grandson was recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and he has done more in 6 months than Halle has done in 20 years. She should be ashamed of herself.
    Jenny McCarthy, Holly Robinson Peete–these women earned their seats on Oprah. Halle–go home until you are ready to help others or at least be honest and share your experiences.

  • blah

    ras why don’t u go to washington? seats on oprah are earned? that’s ridiculous. stop hating. u r ugly.

  • david beckham lookalike

    She’s more hotter when shes on short hair!

  • A Certain Smile

    She has no obligation to you or any one else to speak about her medical history. Diabetics have healthy babies all the time. Unless you have uncontrolled diabetes, she is perfectly capable of having a healthy child. You are not a medical professional and don’t know what you are talking about. 40 is not too old to have a child. Many women do and Halle can afford the best medical care to monitor her through her pregnancy. If she spoke anout her diabetes then you would say she talks too much and should not be telling others what to do. no matter what she does or does not do there will be critics on both sides of this diabetes debate.

    I will never understand what is the personal benefit of spreading false information and hate.

  • Nona

    Good for her. And my Gawd, some of you, RAS, only seem to be happy when your bitchin’. If the criteria to be on oprah were that all guests/celebrities have done good deeds prior, she wouldn’t have a freakin show. You have an agenda that’s so totally off subject that your comments make you look utterly foolish.

  • the_original_nika

    “I will never understand what is the personal benefit of spreading false information and hate.”

    me neither, some people are just born stupid.

  • Maria

    Oh Halle! She and Gabriel are so insync with Brangelina! I hope their bundle of joy will be close to the Jolie-Pitt kids! I love this couple too. Halle is one sexy mama. Gabriel is one sexy papa!

    Wishing Halle and Gabriel positive thoughts and good karma.

  • D

    BENICIO DEL TORO IS HOTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • amle

    halle is a crazy, jealous whore (like angelina)

  • sid

    People are jealous of Halle Berry.

  • Halle you still are missing the boat?

    Agree with ras—why didn’t she talk about her diabetes with her pregnancy–she can really be beneficial help to woman who are diabetic and want to have children or older woman w/diabetes who want to have kids. It has always been about her. Well said.

    It’s great she wanted to share the good news with Oprah and the viewers. Don’t care about how she conceived or how many HP kits she used (answers the questions of many posters on the other blogs as to what was in the bags when she was shopping–LOL) or how wonderful a guy Aubry is (we all know that he is according to her. But she also said the same thing about each of the exes until the fell from grace in her eyes or got tired of her bs) and that’s great that she wants another kid right away–Halle first see how it goes with the first one before thinking about another. Sounds like she is in denial with her disease, what OBGYN would encourage this with her diabetes at her age?

  • LMAO

    Total horseshit about her wanting more kids right away, has she forgotten she’s 41 w/diabetes? And needed a movie role to prepare her for motherhood? Wasn’t she a mother in “Losing Isiaih”? Didn’t help with role as step mother to India or getting closer to her nieces or nephews? Why is she always speaking for the boyfriend other than when he does speak it’s like he’s been coached? More of Halle’s bullshit.

  • SSdd

    SSDD…still the same bs on JJ. Yes,if Halle was smart she would do more for diabetes. She does the same thing for them as she does for the abused women shelter since she was appointed by the courts in her druken fender bender (one of two hit and runs she has had) that Auntie O and Warren Beatty helped her get the charges dropped. More HalleBS about the pregnancy tests–Halle when are you going to tell the truth—your boyfriend knocked you up by in-vitro–seriously, doubt it took 34-35 times for a home pregnancy test please more drama. Let’s see if there are anymore kids or if is still wonderful 5 months from now pregnant. Redefine marriage–ROTF!!! Spiritual partner–please. Sounds like your still trying to convince yourself about his abilities. You’re always talking about what you want. The one time he does an interview he bungled that one off and didn’t sound too convincing like he was being paid to say it.BLAH BLAH BLAH…

  • she did have plastic surgery

    She did have plastic surgery on her forehead from having 10-15 stitches from that car accident. Don’t know about her other body parts.

  • more of halle’s bs while promoting a movie

    Total bs for the number of HPT she took and she and Aubry doing it like clock-work. Their relationship has been a total sham. Yes, Gabby’s really gay/bi. Yes, she really did have in-vitro, but Aubry isn’t the frozen Pop. Ya’ll are going to shit when you find out who it is? I know this for an absolute fact. And the amazing thing is that Halle doesn’t know that the frozen Pop knows it’s his kid. I guess we’ll have to find out on D-Day, huh?

  • Halle changes tune on Tavis

    Halle changes tune about whether or not she will try to have more children:

    Which is it Halle? Or were you just being your usual drama queen self for Auntie O?

  • hard to do if bf is in NYc?

    More kids will be hard to do if Aubry stays in NYC if the rumors are true as well as him loving them from a distance. More of Halle’s bullshit on Oprah.

  • halle lied as usual

    Halle lying in perfect form on Oprah. Please she and model boy didn’t do the nasty as much as she claims. Known fact she went to the Pacific Fertility Clinic-LA in Westwood. He’s as spiritual as she is–nada. He’s got intergrity-more bs–he’s more shady than she is. Please. He’s nothing more than a paid sperm donor if he really is the babydaddy.
