Halle Berry attended a United Nations World Food Program event at the Four Seasons in New York on Saturday, and she chatted with CNN about her pregnancy, which was a shock to us ... and to her as well!
"This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth. Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it's been a big surprise and the most wonderful," Halle told Alina Cho. When asked if she was having a boy, Halle said, "I don't know, I don't know. But [the baby is] healthy!"
Berry pointed out that many expectant mothers struggle to feed themselves and their unborn children, adding, "Especially now, being a pregnant woman and already having a child ... it's so important what happens to the baby while they're in utero. And the first 1,000 days is fundamental. Good nutrition during that time period is fundamental for your baby to develop properly and normally."
"I'm a mom, and that's first and foremost, but it gives me another reason to exist, another purpose," she said of her work with the charity. "And if I know that I'm helping one person every day in some way, that really makes me feel good, and that's a legacy that I can leave to my children."
