Halle Berry's Baby Bump Likely Disappoints Daughter Nahla (PHOTO)

Awww! 19

halle berry baby bumpCheck out that baby bump!If you haven't yet heard the big new in Hollywood: Halle Berry is 3 months pregnant. At the "ripe old age of 46," Berry is expecting her second child -- a boy -- with actor Oliver Martinez, 47. The baby will be little brother to Nahla, 5, Berry's daughter with model Gabriel Aubry.

According to Berry, Nahla has been longing for a sibling -- but she hoped it would be a girl!


Berry told talk show host Wendy Williams:

That's the thing. [My daughter is] asking me. Every night we pray to God, and she's so sweet. She says, "God, please bring me a bunk bed and a baby sister." And I say, "I can do one of those things, I know for sure! The other one we have to keep praying on." What do you say to her when she wants that and can't understand why God's taking so long, you know?

Still, when you long for a sibling, having one of the gender you weren't hoping for is better than not having one at all. Nahla will be Big Sister and she can boss her little brother around and get him to do all kinds of things -- play dress-up, put on nail polish, play Barbies. And like an adoring little brother, he'll probably be willing to comply. So while Nahla may initially be disappointed because she's not getting the little sister she wanted, we're pretty certain she'll get over it.

Plus, an upside to being the only girl -- Nahla will get to wear all her mom's fabulous clothes and jewelry when she grows up and won't have to battle a sister for it. Silver linings.

Did your child long for a brother or a sister and then get the opposite? How did it work out?

OMG! Why do you have to be so negative?

I have an older sister but always wanted a brother instead. :)

I wonder though, how do they know its a boy already?

If she's only 12 weeks how do they know the sex of the baby already?

Mothe... MotherGrace

Yeah, that was my question. Like, I know you can tell by 16, but most places wait until 20 JUST to be sure. I don't even think you can determine the sex at 12 weeks!

Maybe she had CVS? That is generally done at 11-12 weeks.

I wanted a brother and got a little sister. Imagine the doctors face when he heard me (2 at the time) ask him to return the new baby and bring out a boy baby.

my little girl has 4 brothers and is dying, DYING for a sister. she had a female cousin on march 27, and that's good enough for her, thankfully. she's so excited to meet her and take her under her wing. :)

oh yeah-- and my girl-- 7 years old today-- is a large girl, so she wears some of my tighter t-shirts, and even though i'm genderqueer, i do occasionally let her paint my toe nails.

She probably knows because she's of advanced maternal age and has had CVS.

3 months could be anywhere from 12-16 weeks, at 16 weeks most places will guarantee gender.  Plus she is 46, I'm sure she's had every test under the sun already.
