In case you were wondering what a mother-of-two at age 47 looks like, Halle Berry has the answer for you. The new mom made her post-baby appearance during the LA premiere of Extant on June 16 and we have to say, she’s never looked so good! Also walking the (blue) carpet was Halle’s husband of 11 months, Olivier Martinez, which marks the couple’s first public appearance in a year.
That’s right; the last time these two were spotted at a red carpet event was during the Champes Elysees Film Festival in 2013, when Halle was five months pregnant with their first child, son Maceo-Robert Martinez. Boy, have times have changed!
Halle — who looks flawless in a metallic knit Jenny Packham dress — welcomed her second child, Maceo (she has a 6-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex Gabriel Aubry), this past October. While she managed to keep a low profile since then, the actress recently made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about her unexpected second pregnancy.
“They call it a geriatric pregnancy,” Halle revealed. “This is probably way TMI, but I was really, you know, kind of premenopausal, so to have this happen was a huge…” Halle also admitted that at the time — she was 46 — she didn’t think it was possible to conceive at such a late age.
But thanks to some prayers from Halle’s daughter, the second pregnancy soon became reality. “She prayed and prayed for him for, like, a year and a half, for a baby and a bunk bed, and she got both of those things,” Halle added. How cute!
