Berry baby riddle
13:30 09 November 2005
Halle Berry is reportedly pregnant with her first child.
The Oscar-winning actress is rumoured to be expecting a baby with her actor boyfriend, Michael Ealy, though other sources claim the couple are still in the process of trying for a child, according to America's New York Daily News newspaper.
As yet, the star's spokeswoman has not returned calls to comment.
Halle has made no secret of her desire to become a mother.
The actress recently admitted she is desperate to have children before she turns 40 next year, telling chat show host Oprah Winfrey: "If there's no serious man, I will tell whoever I'm dating at the time, 'Hey, would you like a baby? I'll sign a paper saying I won't ask you for one cent.'"
After a turbulent love life, which saw Halle split first from husband David Justice, then from second husband Eric Benet, the star confessed she may have to resort to artificial insemination or adoption to realise her dream of motherhood.
She said: "It looks like the only option I have left is a sperm bank. I've been so unlucky in love and that has thwarted my desire for motherhood.
"Another option would be adoption. I really yearn for a child, I can't wait much longer."
