Halle Berry names son Maeco Robert Martine

Halle Berry has named her son Maeco Robert Martine.

The Cloud Atlas star who had her first child with husband Olivier Martinez on Saturday has given the baby a Spanish moniker.

According to gossip website TMZ.com the name, which means "gift of God", coincides with Olivier's dad's Spanish origin.

It’s said Halle's five-year-old daughter, Nahla ? whom she had with ex-fiancé Gabriel Aubry ? has already visited her new baby brother at Cedars Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles.

A source previously said, "Olivier hasn't left Halle's side. Nahla visited her baby brother earlier today."

When Halle revealed the couple were expecting a boy earlier this year, she explained her daughter was excited to for the "miracle" of a brother.

She previously said, "[Nahla's] really happy. Not long ago she asked God for a little sister, but I tried not to get her hopes up. At 46, I didn't know if I'd be able to get pregnant again.

"Olivier and I have always wanted to be parents. But I didn't want to get my hopes up . . . God made the dream come true.

"This pregnancy is like a miracle for me, an amazing gift, because this child was as wished for as it was expected. It's like a renewal of life . . . Good things happen too." -Bang Showbiz Share your thoughts:
