Halle Berry had a baby girl Nahla Ariela Aubry Sunday and “is doing great,” her rep has confirmed. Berry first announced her pregnancy in September last year, when she was three months along. The 7 lbs, 4 oz baby girl arrived at 10:17 am at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, CA.
“Halle is an iconic actress and symbolizes beauty to many generations,” Steve Mormoris, senior vice president of global marketing at Coty Beauty US, told WWD at the Personal Care Products Council’s annual meeting here. “She adds another dimension to the celebrity fragrance market. Halle has always been a little more mysterious, not quite as open with her personal life as some other stars. Her fragrances will allow her to present another facet of her personality to her fans.”
The first Berry fragrance products are expected to launch globally in spring 2009, Mormoris said. They will launch in what Coty terms “mid-tier” department stores, such as J.C. Penney, and then will move into the mass market as well. “We’re committed to developing a project that will bring luxury to the mass market,” said Mormoris. “We want to bring vitality to that market, with projects that consumers find compelling.”
Coty’s extensive celebrity portfolio also includes the scent brands of Jennifer Lopez, David and Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kimora Lee Simmons, Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion, Kate Moss and Tim McGraw.
