Halle Berry gets Candid with Ellen, Talks Breastfeeding and Menopause


She’s always been known as a sex symbol, so it’s a little surprising to finally acknowledge that Halle Berry may be starting to get…old. While visiting the Ellen DeGeneres show, the new mommy talked about giving birth to her second child, which she calls her miracle baby.

They call it a geriatric pregnancy. I was, you know, on my way… this is probably way TMI, but I was really, you know, kinda premenopausal, so to have this happen was a huge [shock],” Halle told Ellen.

The 47-year-old credits the prayers of her gorgeous daughter Nahla, for getting pregnant, saying, “Nahla prayed and prayed for him for like a year and a half for a baby and a bunk bed and she got both of those things. Only her prayers could have done this. I didn’t think it was possible at my age, honestly.”


The X-Men star got candid about how excited Nahla is to be a big sister saying, “You know and all she wants to do is change his clothes. Like she’ll purposely like throw something on his shirt and say, “Oh mommy, he’s got to change his shirt. He has a mess on him!” She just likes to change his clothes, change his diapers.

One way Halle keeps her body in such fabulous is shape is by breastfeeding both of her children. The actress maybe gave a little too much detail when explaining to Ellen.

You know, I’m nursing both…I breastfeed Nahla and I’m nursing my baby. When I would put Nahla on the boob she would go (light sucking) a nice little girly suck with him it’s like (chomping suck) he’s like sucking the life out of me. So I see difference between boys and girls.”

Ellen replied, “That was TMI in my opinion, but okay.”
