Halle Berry has never been one to publicly boast about her two kids. She keeps both nine-year-old Nahla Ariela and three-and-a-half-year-old Maceo-Robert’s identities pretty private. You rarely see their faces — even on social media, Berry will upload strategically cropped snaps.
At the 16th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in California over the weekend, Berry walked the red carpet wearing a head-turning metallic sequinned dress, but it was how her hands were placed as she posed for the camera, almost cradling her stomach, that stirred her fans into a frenzy.
There’s something so gentle and maternal about her touch, it’s impossible not to wonder if she’s got Beyonce and J’s twins’ BFF cooking inside.
The actress’ agent has since told Mirror that the rumours are “completely false.” Okay, fine, but why are you standing like that?! We still need a little more convincing because…
The 50-year-old seems to carry her pregnancies well. Here she is at five-months with her first, Nahla Ariela in 2007:
And then not pregnant one year later:
You’d be hard pressed to find a photo of Berry not looking near-perfect, even when growing a tiny human inside of her. Again, here she is at almost full-term with baby Maceo-Robert chilling in her tummy:
Then after giving birth later that year:
And just as a reminder, this is another angle of Berry from this past weekend…. Possible with her third child? Or heck, maybe she just ate a really delicious halibut burrito before showing up to this event and everyone is freaking out over nothing. We’ve all been there.
