Halle Berry's second pregnancy didn't come just as a surprise to the public, but to the 46-year-old actress as well. The gorgeous mom of 5-year-old Nahla is expecting her first child with fiancé Olivier Martinez and though ecstatic, the news came as a shock to Berry.
"I feel fantastic," she told CNN. "This has been the biggest surprise of my life to tell you the truth. I 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, who's teamed up with designer Michael Kors to promote the United Nations World Food Programme, is helping in the fight against hunger. It's a task that as a mom and a pregnant woman lies close to her heart.
"Especially now, being a pregnant woman and already having a child, that it's so important: what happens to the baby while they're in utero," she explains.
"And the first 1,000 days is fundamental. Good nutrition during that time period is fundamental for your baby to develop properly and normally and to live a normal life."
