With approximately four more months to go before Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry become first-time parents, the unborn child is already getting an earful from its dad.

“I put a little mike in her belly button and I talk to the mike!” he reveals to OK! at the Wilhemina 40th Anniversary party.



The model is so excited for their impending arrival that he’s been doting his lady every chance he gets.

A favorite? “Rubbing her belly,” Gabriel says.

One thing he doesn’t do though is comment about her weight, at least not in a backhanded way. Gabriel tells Extra the one piece of advice he can bestow to other fathers-to-be is, "Don’t say she’s fat."

Finding out about the pregnancy was the 31-year-old’s unrivaled “number one moment” of 2007, topping the launch of his restaurant Café Fuego and scoring a hole in one.

“Just having a kid is one of those things you can’t even think about it,” he gushes to OK!.

Gabriel’s been preparing for the birth with extensive reading and tells Extra Dr. Phil’s Family First is required reading. "Great book. I recommend it."

As he counts down the final months and the year comes to a close, the hunk can only look forward to great things in 2008 — fatherhood and perhaps their first family trip to Greece.

"My girlfriend’s never been there," he tells OK!. "It’s a great country. It’s sunny all the time. Everything is white everywhere, and the food is fantastic."
