Posted Sept. 5, 2007 -- Finally, the rumor mill can rest. Halle Berry IS pregnant this time.

The 41-year-old actress revealed to Access Hollywood that she and model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry are expecting a child together.

“Yes, I am three months pregnant! Gabriel and I are beyond excited, and I’ve waited a long time for this moment in life. Now the next seven months will be the longest of my life!” said Berry, whose pregnancy suspended production on an upcoming film "Tulia."

Berry has made no secret about her desire for a family. On the Oprah Winfrey show, just after her divorce from second husband Eric Benet, the Oscar winner vowed never to marry again, but admitted she did want children. She shared the sentiment with Nancy O'Dell of "Access" this spring.

"Not that there’s not more to accomplish, but I think I arrived at a point in life that I realized I needed more to get me up in the morning. More than going to a new movie set. Or as much fun as getting the star was yesterday, I need something even more profound than that and that’s family. And that’s children,” Berry said. ” I need that like the air to breathe these days and I’m ready. I’m at a point where I’m really, really ready.”

Berry, 41, and Aubry, 32, met shooting a Versace ad in Los Angeles in November 2005.
