Actress Halle Berry and boyfriend Olivier Martinez have confirmed during a trip to Paris that they are expecting a son.
He proudly revealed the news to PEOPLE, “My son will be an American, but I remain French.”
Martinez shared the gender news at the opening night of Champs-Elysées Film Festival, where he is serving as this year’s honorary president.
He claims walking the red carpet isn’t really a big deal for him, “It’s not the first one, not the last I’ve been on. It’s part of the job.”
For the past two years he has lived in the United States with his actress fiancee and her daughter, “I’m French — it’s less important. Meaning, I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there — but I’m still a foreigner.”
Then he added for the second time, “My son will be an American.”
Berry, due to deliver her second child this fall, will be the special guest of honor Thursday night at another high profile festival event, where photographers will be swarming to capture her baby bump on the red carpet.
The actress shares custody of her 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend, French model Gabriel Aubry.
