Halle Berry owes her newest bundle of joy, daughter Nahla Ariela, to one woman — Donatella Versace.

The fashion maven was the person responsible for Halle and model-beau Gabriel Aubry‘s hook-up at a November 2005 photo shoot.

"Yeah, I pushed a little bit," she tells OK! at Versace Menswear at Barneys New York. "I knew both of them were single at the moment. I knew what Halle went through with men, and Gabriel’s been there. I thought they were a great couple together. I’m very happy."

That was a good call on the 52-year-old’s part as the couple welcomed Nahla, their first child, on Sunday. Though she hasn’t yet met Nahla, Donatella is certain she’ll be seeing a lot of her in the future.

"I’m sure I will [design clothes for her]," she says.

And what does she think of the moniker?

"I love it. I wish it was Donatella."
