Born: A son to Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez, both 47, in L.A. on Saturday, her rep told People and AP. Second child for the Oscar-winning actress, who has a 5-year-old daughter from a prior relationship, but her first with the French actor, whom she wed in July. She told CNN last spring that her mid-40s pregnancy was “the biggest surprise of my life,” which could mean anything. None of our business anyway. Name? They’re not telling us quite yet, so hold tight.
