Halle Berry and her model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry are expecting their first child, the Oscar-winning actress told celebrity TV show “Access Hollywood” on Tuesday.
“Yes, I am three months pregnant,” Berry wrote in an e-mail to the program. “Gabriel and I are beyond excited, and I’ve waited a long time for this moment in life. Now the next … months will be the longest of my life!”
“Access Hollywood” said Berry, 41, met Aubry, 31, in 2005.
Celebrity news Web site TMZ.com reported that producers of an upcoming film starring Berry, “Tulia,” have postponed production of the movie, which was scheduled to begin in October.
Representatives for the film’s distributor, Lionsgate, were not immediately available for comment.
The film also was to feature actor Billy Bob Thornton, who co-starred with Berry in “Monster’s Ball,” the 2001 movie that earned Berry an Academy Award as best actress.
Berry’s marriages to baseball star David Justice and Singer Eric Benet ended in divorce.
