When 50-year-old actress Halle Berry walked the red carpet of Sunday night’s Butterfly Ball in Los Angeles wearing a form-fitting silver sequinned dress and resting her hands on her stomach, the world starting talking.
Was the movie star expecting?
Was this her way of sharing some happy baby news with the world?

As it turns out, not quite.
Halle Berry is not pregnant. Which makes sense, because not every woman who places her hands on her stomach at any given time is busy growing a baby.
A rep for the star confirmed the (fake) news, but the star herself wanted to clear things up in her own way.
So, she posted a cheeky image on Instagram addressing the rumours.
Posting a selfie for her 1.6 million followers, the X-Men actress wrote, "Can a girl have some steak and fries??"
So...no human baby. Just a food baby. We've all been there...
Halle is a proud mum of two children: her nine-year-old daughter Nahla with ex-partner Gabriel Aubry, and her three-year-old son, Maceo, with ex-husband Olivier Martinez.
LISTEN: Amal Clooney is "flaunting" her baby bump at the UN. Or maybe she's just working as a human rights lawyer?
