'I thought I was too old to have another child': Halle Berry, 46, delights in her 'surprise' pregnancy as she shows her budding bump
She's been disguising her budding bump under layers of clothes in recent weeks.
But since confirming her pregnancy on Friday, Halle Berry is delighted to be showing off her changing form.
The 46-year-old actress wore a tight black dress which hugged her new curves to an event at the Pool Room at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City on Saturday.

There was also still a faint display of the floral henna tattoo she had done on her arm while in Hawaii earlier this month.
She joined designer Michael Kors at a dinner to help the United Nations World Food Programme fight world hunger. Her fiance, French actor Olivier Martinez, sat the event out.
In an interview with CNN, Halle said she feels 'fantastic', and admitted that she didn't expect to fall pregnant at her age.

The star, who already has a five-year-old daughter Nahla with her former boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, said: 'This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth. Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it's been a big surprise and the most wonderful.'
When asked to confirm if she was expecting a boy, she said: 'I don't know, I don't know. But [the baby is] healthy!'
The actress and fashion designer announced a philanthropic campaign Monday called Watch Hunger Stop that includes raising money through the sale of a version of Kors' best-selling Runway watch. For each $295 watch sold, 100 meals will be provided to children through the U.N. World Food Programme.
Berry and Kors are planning to visit places together where the meals will be sent. They could land in Africa, in Syria, perhaps Central America.
The 46-year-old Berry, who is expecting her first child with fiance Olivier Martinez, said in an exclusive joint interview Saturday with Kors: 'I hope we go while I'm pregnant, so I can talk about prenatal care.'
'And I will have time off,' she said, patting her belly and smiling. 'I'm not working right now.' (There was no sign of a baby bump in her chic black sheath with a bit of beading at the neckline.)
Berry, who has a 5-year-old daughter, said she wanted to meet and talk with mothers struggling to feed themselves and their children while she was expecting. It will help build a connection, she said.
'It's so important to me, being a mom, that I can help educate women on how important it is that when you have a healthy child, it helps set them up for life.'

Kors and Berry hope to involve 5 million people, either through donations of time or money.
Berry, who supports the Jenesse Center, an anti-domestic violence shelter in Los Angeles, said working with the U.N. 'is the next evolution in my philanthropic world. It puts my heart and compassion on a global scale.'
Erin Heatherton, Irina Shayk, Solange Knowles, Hilary Rhoda, and Doutzen Kroes were also at Saturday night's event.
Last week Halle was forced to break up a fight between Olivier and a photographer.

She restrained her fiance and pushed him into their waiting car after a paparazzo accused him of pushing him at Los Angeles International Airport.
The incident happened when the French actor, 47, was trying to navigate his way out of the terminal while carrying Nahla after they arrived back from a break in Hawaii.
Halle became hysterical as they attempted to leave the area amid dozens of camera flashes and pleaded with photographers to leave them alone.
After a photographer told her 'he pushed me,' she replied: 'There is a child. There is a child here, that's why you idiots.'
Olivier placed Nahla in their car and then attempted to confront the photographer but Halle said: 'Olivier no, Olivier no' and pushed him into the vehicle.
