Halle Berry and fiancé Olivier Martinez are set to have a baby boy this fall.

“My son will be an American, but I remain French,” Martinez told People at the Champs-Elysees Film Festival in Paris on Wednesday.

Berry, who’s already mother to her five-year-old daughter Nahla, began a relationship with Martinez in 2010 after splitting with ex-beau and father of her child, Gabriel Aubry. She got engaged to Martinez after two years of dating.

In 2010, Berry told Wendy Williams that her daughter had been hoping for a sibling. “That’s the thing,” said Berry. “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.'”

The 46-year-old actress, who is now five months into her pregnancy, says she’s nothing but excited about her expected baby boy.

“I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me,” said Berry. “So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.”
