Halle Berry has become the latest celebrity to give birth this year in what is being called the biggest celebrity baby boom ever. The 41-year-old actress and her 32-year-old boyfriend model Gabriel Aubry welcomed a 7 lb 4 oz baby girl around 10 a.m. Sunday (March 16) morning at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles. Halle's rep has confirmed to Us Weekly and People, saying Halle is "doing great." According to Star magazine, the actress had checked into the hospital for the second time that day after feeling contractions earlier Saturday morning. Reportedly, because her blood pressure was skyrocketing, everyone was a little tense. She's a diabetic so that was complicating matters as well. The doctors checked the fetal heart rate and everything seemed okay. After a while Halle's blood pressure came down. She wasn't dilating anymore so at around 2:45 pm they let her go home. Halle felt her contractions come on a lot more intensely later that night so she came back to the hospital at 11:00 pm Saturday night and gave birth Sunday morning. Sources claim Halle was overcome with emotion when she finally held her little girl. She said everything she had gone through was worth that moment. The tears kept coming as Halle didn't even want the nurses to take her baby to clean her up and measure. It was a truly beautiful scene.

Halle announced that she was three months pregnant in September, telling Oprah that she and Gabriel chose a delivery surprise because, 'We have a whole life[time] to know what it is. There's so few genuine surprises in life anymore -- why not have a huge surprise? I like fantasizing [that] one day it's a girl, one day it's a boy.'
