Publicist Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson offered no other details.

Berry and Martinez announced their engagement last year. Berry has a daughter with her ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry. The two settled their custody battle over the 5-year-old in November. This is the first child for Martinez.

Appearing on "The Wendy Williams Show" last fall, the "Cloud Atlas" star admitted that Nahla was pining for a sibling, Us Weekly reports.

"That's the thing. [My daughter is] asking me," Berry admitted. "Every night we pray to God, and she's so sweet. She says, 'God, please bring me a bunk bed and a baby sister.' And I say, 'I can do one of those things, I know for sure! The other one we have to keep praying on.' What do you say to her when she wants that and can't understand why God's taking so long, you know?"
