Berry, 41, and father Gabriel Aubry a 32-year-old Canadian model met while shooting a Versace ad in Los Angeles two years ago.

Halle, told Oprah Winfrey on her show last year that playing a mother in her latest movie, "Things We Lost in the Fire," helped convince her that motherhood was for her. "I think it validated that I was meant to be a mother because every day I dealt with the character as a mother and thinking as a mother," Berry said. "It let me know that I must be a mother."

Berry won the best-actress Oscar for her role in the 2001's "Monster's Ball." She also won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her role in 1999's "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge." Berry had said she and Aubry don't plan to marry, but feel fully committed to each other.
