Halle Berry teamed up with designer Michael Kors for his United Nations World Food Programme, and she brought along her growing baby bump to help promote the organization at recent New York City event. While at the dinner, which was held in Berry’s honor, the Oscar-winner opened up about her new pregnancy.
“I feel fantastic. 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,” Berry tells CNN.
This is Berry’s first child with fianc� Olivier Martinez. Berry also has a 5-year-old daughter named Nahla, who she had with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. She says that the United Nations World Food Programme means a lot to her because she is a mother.
“I’m a mom, and that’s first and foremost, but it gives me another reason to exist, another purpose,” Berry says. “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.”
