Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez welcomed a baby boy into the world earlier this week and now they’ve chosen a baby name.
The actress has decided to name her new baby Maceo Robert Martinez.
E! Online reports that Olivier wanted a name with a Spanish origin and Halle wanted a name to reflect god. They settled on the name Maceo which means “gift of god.”
A source close to the actress said: “They chose it because it means gift from God… Olivier wanted to give a nod to his Spanish roots. They picked the name a while ago, they love it.”
CBS reports that this is the second child for Halle Berry but her first with husband Martinez. Berry’s first child, a 5-year-old daughter, is named Nahla. Berry said earlier this year that she didn’t expect to get pregnant again.
Berry told the IB Times: “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.”
Martinez and Berry were married earlier this year during a small ceremony in France.
