Check 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?
