It's a boy for Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez.

Publicist Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson offered no other details. E! News reports Berry delivered the baby at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

This is the second child for Berry. She has a 5-year-old daughter with her ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry. The two settled their custody battle over the child in 2012.

This is the first child for Martinez. The French actor and Berry married in July.

No word yet on the boy's name.

In April, Berry and fashion designer Michael Kors announced a philanthropic campaign called Watch Hunger Stop that includes raising money through the sale of a version of Kors' best-selling Runway watch. For each $295 watch sold, 100 meals will be provided to children through the U.N. World Food Programme.

Berry said she wanted to meet and talk with mothers struggling to feed themselves and their children while she was expecting. It will help build a connection, she said. "It's so important to me, being a mom, that I can help educate women on how important it is that when you have a healthy child, it helps set them up for life."
