Halle has already confessed to US talk show giant Oprah Winfrey that she wants to have a baby by the time she turns 40 - this August (06).

The star said: "If there's no serious man in my life, whoever I'm dating at the time, I'll say, 'Hey, would you like to have a baby?'

"I've been so desperately unlucky in love and that has thwarted my desire for motherhood. It's so frustrating.

"I really yearn for a child and I can't wait much longer."

Halle has been married and divorced twice - the first time was to baseball player David Justice, the second time was to actor Eric Benet.
