Halle Berry is going to one up Janet Jackson who gave birth to her first child, son Essia, at age 50 this year.

Photos of the almost 51-year old with a brand new baby bump at this weekend’s 16th annual Butterfly Ball seem to suggest she is pregnant with her third child.

The Oscar-winning star cupped her very large baby bump under a silver sequined dress and coat at the yearly event that  supports the education initiatives of the Chicago Academy of Sciences  and held at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. 

Naturally, the Internet is hilariously wondering who the dad is given that the Monster’s Ball star had managed to keep her relationship status private since divorcing her third husband, Olivier Martinez, who is dad to her son Maceo.

janet jackson not oldest celebrity

When Janet Jackson welcomed her son Essia this past Tuesday, January 3rd, she did not become the celebrity to have given birth at the oldest age. Jackson welcomed her newborn with husband Wissam Al Mana , an entire 4 months and 13 days before her 51st birthday which will be on May 16.

Singer Sophie B. Hawkins, best known for her hit “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover,” gave birth to her second child, daughter Esther Ballantine Hawkins, on July  7, 2015. She only had 3 months and 25 days to go before she turned 51 on November 1. In other words, Janet was 50 and 8 months old and Hawkins was 50 years and 9 months old when they each gave birth.

But who’s counting!?

Other celebrity women to give birth close to age 50 include Beverly D’Angelo who welcomed twins Anton and Olivia Pacino with Al Pacino at age 49. Actress Laura Linney was also 49 when she welcomed her son Bennett Armistead with Marc Schauer in January 2014.

After losing their 16-year-old son Jet in 2009, John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston tried for a third child. They were successful even though Preston would be 48 years old when they welcomed a baby boy, Benjamin, in November 2010.  Geena Davis was also 48 when she too gave birth to twins, sons Kian William and Kaiis Steven, in May 2004. She had her daughter Alizeh Keshvar at age 46.

Finally, Halle Berry said she was not expecting to get pregnant again when she got pregnant with her son Maceo with then-husband Olivier Martinez. She welcomed him in October 2013 when she was 47-years old.
