Halle Berry is finally a mother. The 41-year-old actress has given birth to a baby girl Sunday morning, March 16 at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, according to reports.
Star Magazine was the first to bring the report to the surface. An insider told the publication, "Halle Berry had a 7lb 4 oz girl at 10:17am Sunday morning, March 16, at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. The actress had checked into the hospital for the second time that day after feeling contractions earlier Saturday morning."
The insider revealed further that "Halle had come to the hospital at 4am in the morning because the felt like she was going into labor. It was a bit scary because her blood pressure was skyrocketing and everyone was a little tense. She's a diabetic so that was complicating matters as well. The doctors checked the fetal heart rate and everything seemed okay. After a while Halle's blood pressure came down. She wasn't dilating anymore so at around 2:45pm they let her go home."
Halle, still according to the insider, "felt her contractions come on a lot more intensely later that night so she came back to the hospital at 11:00pm Saturday night. Halle was overcome with emotion when she finally held her little girl. She said everything she had gone through was worth that moment. The tears kept coming as Halle didn't even want the nurses to take her baby to clean her up and measure. It was a truly beautiful scene."
A name has not yet been revealed and there have yet comments from either Halle herself or her people.
Halle has been dating model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry since January 2006. In September 2007, she officially confirmed that she's pregnant with his baby. "Yes, I am three months pregnant," so she said at that time. "Gabriel and I are beyond excited, and I've waited a long time for this moment in life. Now the next seven months will be the longest of my life!"
