According to reports, Halle Berry delivered a healthy baby boy on Saturday, October 5—her first with new husband, French actor Olivier Martinez.

No word yet on the little guy's name, but he no doubt joins a very excited big sis. After all, Berry spilled to Wendy Williams last year that her daughter, Nahla, 5, had been begging for a little sibling since basically forever. (Looks like those prayers were finally answered.)

As for the pregnancy, the 47-year-old actress admitted to CNN in April that it was a complete and total surprise.

"I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me," the actress confessed. "So it's been a big surprise and the most wonderful." She later told Entertainment Tonight that she considered the whole thing to be a "miracle."

Though new parents Berry and Martinez wed in July, their romance has not been without its rocky points; namely those involving Gabriel Aubry, Berry's former flame and father to Nahla. Aubry and Martinez famously fought on Thanksgiving Day back in 2012, right on the front steps of Berry's home. At the tail-end of a bitter custody dispute over Nahla, tensions between the couple were at a boiling point, and Aubry's anger issues were rumored to be an ongoing problem. In fact, the brawl was later determined to be instigated by Aubry, though Berry and Martinez chose not to prosecute and the issue has since been laid to rest.
