Hollywood actress Halle Berry, who won an Oscar for Monster's Ball, has revealed she is expecting her first child with partner Gabriel Aubry.

Berry, 41, confirmed she was three months pregnant in an e-mail to US cable television show Access Hollywood.

"Gabriel and I are beyond excited and I've waited a long time for this moment in my life," she said.

Berry met 32-year-old male model Aubry on a photo shoot for fashion house Versace in November 2005.

The actress said earlier this year she wanted to have children, but did not want to marry for a third time.

Her previous marriages - to baseball player David Justice and R&B singer Eric Benet - both ended in divorce.

"I will never, never get married again," she told InStyle magazine in April. Actually, it's just that now I've come to a place where I think two people can share their lives without the ring, without the piece of paper."

Berry, who won a best actress Oscar for her role in Monster's Ball, recently starred opposite Bruce Willis in the film Perfect Stranger.

She recently finished filming Things We Lost in the Fire, about a widow inviting her dead husband's best friend to live with her and her children.
