Halle Berry is pregnant.

A representative for the 46-year-old actress confirms that Halle Berry and her fiance, Olivier Martinez, are expecting their first child together. There are media reports that it's a boy.

Publicist Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson offered no other details.

Halle Berry won an Academy Award for Best Actress in 2002 for her performance in Monster's Ball, becoming the first and, so far, the only African-American woman to win an Oscar for a leading role. In Monster's Ball, Berry played the widow of a criminal, and she falls in love with a Southern death-row guard. Currently, Berry is starring in 'The Call,' a movie about a 911 dispatcher who pursues a serial killer.

Berry and Martinez announced their engagement last year. Berry has a daughter, Nahla, with her ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry. The two settled their custody battle over the 5-year-old in November.

Every night, we do our prayers," Berry said during a November appearance on The Wendy Williams Show., according to Eonline. "We pray to God, 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've got to keep praying on.'"

This is the first child for Martinez.
