As she united with other celebrities on Sunday afternoon to rally support for women's cancers at the 20th Annual Entertainment Industry Foundation/Revlon Run/Walk, Halle Berry took a moment to reflect on becoming pregnant at age 46.
"I'm thinking that this is a miracle," Berry said on the press line for the event. "I feel really happy. It's one of the best things that happened in my life, for sure."
Berry, who has a five-year-old daughter, revealed in April that she and her fiancé Olivier Martinez are expecting the child, a boy. The Oscar-winning actress has had both of her children in her forties.
As for the event that she was co-hosting alongside ET's own Brooke Anderson, actors Andy Garcia and Julie Bowen, and Dancing with the Stars professional dancer Karina Smirnoff, Berry stressed how important it was to raise funds for research to combat cancers.
"I've been touched by cancer in my life. I've lost loved ones," the Monster's Ball actress said. "I've [known] women that have beat the battle, so I'm encouraged by that. I think it's important to be a part of raising money and help raising awareness. It's women helping women and I really, really love that."
The event, which took place at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at Exposition Park this year, has become one of the largest single-day fundraisers for women's cancers in Los Angeles, according to the EIF, with over 30,000 participants supporting the cause in some manner.
"It's really important that people continue to support these 'un-sexy' diseases," Modern Family actress Julie Bowen said. "It's not new. It's not bird flu; it's not SARS, and it still hasn't been cured and it kills millions and millions of women every year."
ET's Brooke Anderson revealed a personal connection to the event, as her mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
"My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and its was devastating for us. She was preparing for the worst. It was a really terrifying time," said Anderson, who assured that her mother is doing better now.
