Halle Berry Gives Birth to a Baby Boy and His Name Is… (UPDATE)

UPDATE: According to TMZ, Halle named her son Maceo-Robert Martinez. Maceo was a popular Spanish name from the 9th to 14 centuries meaning "Gift of God." Robert is the first name of Olivier's father. People reports that the couple chose a hyphenated first name for their newborn to create the most effortless combination of the ancient and modern names they were bestowing on him.

Original Story: Congratulations are in order for Halle Berry and hubby Olivier Martinez! Per E! News, the 47-year-old actress gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday, October 5 at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. People confirmed the news with Halle's reps.

This is Halle's first child with Olivier. Her 5-year-old daughter Nahla is from her previous relationship with Canadian model Gabriel Aubry.

Olivier confirmed the baby's gender back in June, telling People that while he'll always identify as a Frenchman, his son will be American.

"I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there — but I’m still a foreigner … My son will be an American," he explained.

Halle and Olivier tied the knot this summer in Paris after a year-long engagement. Halle was previously married to baseball player David Justice in the '90s and R&B singer-songwriter Eric Benét from 2001-2005.

No word yet on a name for the baby, but we'll let you know as soon as we do. In the meantime, leave your well wishes for Halle and Olivier in the comments below!
