Actress Halle Berry, who is expecting her first child with model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, is grateful to her role in "Things We Lost In The Fire" for making her want to be a mother in real life.
She stars with Benicio Del Toro in the movie as a grief stricken widow.
Contactmusic.com quoted her as saying: "I knew from playing a mother in this movie and having two adorable, smart children around me all the time that I was meant to be a mother.
"It's no mystery that right after we finished the movie it manifested itself in my life because I think I subconsciously knew, 'Yes, I can do this. I'm really, really ready'."
