Halle Berry has given birth to a baby girl.
The 'X-Men' actress and her model lover Gabriel Aubry are overjoyed after welcoming a 7lb 4oz daughter into the world yesterday (16.03.08).
Halle is believed to have given birth at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital.
The 41-year-old star's representative said: "Halle is doing great."
It is not yet known what the couple have decided to call their first child.
Halle reportedly suffered a health scare and was taken to hospital on Saturday (15.03.08) after her blood pressure soared.
A source told America's Star magazine: "Halle had come to the hospital at 4am in the morning because she felt she was going into labour. It was a bit scary because her blood pressure was skyrocketing and everyone was a little tense.
"She's a diabetic so that was complicating matters. The doctors checked the foetal heart rate and everything seemed OK. After a while Halle's blood pressure came down so they let her go home in the afternoon.
"Halle felt her contractions come on a lot more intensely later that night so she came back to the hospital at 11.00pm."
Halle was left in tears when her daughter finally arrived.
The source added: "Halle was overcome with emotion when she finally held her baby. The tears kept coming and Halle didn't even want the nurses to take her baby to be cleaned and measured. It was a beautiful scene."
The actress met Gabriel while shooting a Versace advert in Los Angeles in 2005.
Halle announced her pregnancy last September and revealed the couple were planning to expand their family again soon.
She laughed: "There's just one baby at the moment, but we're hoping, immediately after this one, to do it again!"
