Hollywood A-lister Halle Berry is rumoured to be expected a bouncing baby.

The 40-year-old star is currently dating toy boy Canadian supermodel Gabriel Aubry, who is nine years her junior. The face of Versace met her beau while at a photo shoot for the Italian high fashion brand.

Oscar-winning Halle has been married twice before. Her marriage to baseball star David Justice ended in 1996 while her four-year marriage to musician Eric Benet reportedly ended as a result of Benet's infidelity.

In the past, Halle has always been frank about her desire to have children at some point but has stated that if having children was a problem, she would be happy to follow the likes of Madonna, Nicole Kidman and Angelina Jolie by adopting children.

Gossip website Hollyscoop.com have posted photographs of a radiant Halle having lunch with a friend in west Hollywood wearing a loose, draping dress and sporting what appears to be a baby bump.

With the gossip heating up, the Monsters Ball star can't even get a sandwich without pregnancy speculation!
