Being a non-celebrity, I guess I always kind of assumed that famous moms-to-be sent personal assistants to do all their pre-baby shopping -- why schlep around on swollen ankles stocking up on crib sheets if you can pay somebody else to do it? Still, I wasn't all that surprised to see this pic of Halle Berry and her growing bump on a baby furniture-buying mission in Culver City, California ... any 46-year-old expectant mama who can look that relaxed and ravishing while running errands is clearly capable of browsing for bassinets all by herself.
Is there anything this woman can't do??
Plus, if you think about it, Berry must already have lots of baby stuff lying around -- afer all, her daughter Nahla (with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry) is only 5. Could be that all the Academy Award-winning actress really needs for baby #2 is a change in color scheme, as this bun in the oven (dad is fiancé Olivier Martinez, 47) is a boy! (Hmm, think the baby's gender has anything to do with those blue stripes on Berry's dress?)
No matter what color the new arrival's bedroom will be, one thing's for sure: His mama is going to make sure his privacy is protected. That's why she testified earlier this week on behalf of a bill that would help to stop paparazzi from photographing the children of celebrities. "If [the bill] passes, the quality of my life and my children's lives will be dramatically changed," Berry said.
Here's hoping, Halle!
Are you surprised to see Halle Berry doing her own shopping for baby furniture?
